Buzzy Lee debuts”Cinderblock”
Buzzy Lee AKA: singer/songwriter Sasha Spielberg has shared her latest “Cinderblock.” The lead-single off her album Internal Affairs, out March 31 via Future Classic. Sasha’s unmistakable hypnotic vocals chronicle a tale of vulnerability, layered over upbeat retro synths. The accompanying music video was co-directed by Christina Jobe and Sasha Spielberg.
Of the track, Sasha says “The song “Cinderblock” describes my search for foundation in a time of distraction. In this video, I want to achieve perfection: perfect video, with perfectly behaved dogs. Unable to achieve perfection (like in life), I distract myself with a seemingly productive task: clearing my browser history. This video may be my most vulnerable yet, as you’re about to see my real search history. There are like, ten “Do I have OCD” quizzes in there.”
Internal Affairs is about seeking foundation in a period of groundlessness. After an ethereal and haunting debut break-up album, the more robust and less fragile Internal Affairs ties up all the loose ends of unraveling romantic love before entering the next chapter. With some songs spanning five years, the album was assembled and recorded over the pandemic. Internal Affairs embodies the juxtaposition of isolation and hyper-connectivity in daily life through the heart of a turbulent relationship. It also touches upon Sasha finding her identity as an artist and as an individual, while still a part of the tapestry of her large family. Much like cleaning out an attic, now that Internal Affairs has been written and is being released, Buzzy Lee’s mind is clean and her heart is open.
