Each week, Music Week profiles a red hot brand new artist. Under our microscope this week are Norwegian three-piece Sassy 009...
Key Track: Are You Leaving
Label: Hard Up
Management: Luft Recordings
Who: Norwegian trio Sunniva, Teodora, and Johanna.
What: Electronic pop, smudged and stained with heartache. Look out for scrambled noise and abstract sequences in amongst the sharp hooks and dancey top lines, too.
Wait, don’t Smerz do something similar?
Yes, and London-based indie label Hard Up has worked with them too, but Sassy 009 seem a scratchier, more unpredictable proposition. Yes, that’s a flute you can hear on Are You Leaving.
So they’ve got a record out already?
The trio’s debut EP, Do You Mind, dropped earlier this month and is a handy 16-minute primer. From the rumble and crackle of Pretty Baby, to Wounds’ airy conclusion, it’s a treat.
Nice. what else have they got going on?
Record label clamour, of course! Sassy 009 were in London to launch their EP, and it’s safe to say they’ve set tongues wagging...
