Sasha Samara is an exciting new voice in indie pop music. Coating her music in an endearing honesty, she threads together observations and exclamations that are underlined by a thrilling specificity. All of this is achieved through open and soaring vocals reminiscent of Hayley Williams and writing with the characteristic clarity of Maggie Rogers.
With support from PRSF funded ‘Scratch My Progress’ program, and a Northern Irish Music Prize for Best New Artist in 2020, Sasha has been carefully cultivating her debut EP, set for release on the 25th of May 2023.
‘Under My Skin’ is an evolution of Sasha Samara’s sound, melting dark synths, vocal samples and glittering production into a simmering alt-pop track. Acting as a cautionary tale, Samara picks apart the intricacies of trying to be friends with an ex-partner; the familiarity, the tension and the curiosity of what might happen if you gave the relationship another shot. The second single from her debut EP ‘Why Am I Still Here, I Never Learn’ teases of the rich sonic palette to be found within her first collection of songs, crafted in collaboration with producer Si Francis.
