“Jealousy” Sasami

This week, Sasami announced her self-titled debut album, out March 8th via Domino Records. With the news, comes a video for the single, “Jealousy.” Sasami will be taking her new album on the road, starting February 27th in Berlin, Germany.

Sasami on the video for “Jealousy”:

“The whole “Jealousy” video was born out of inspiration from the scene ‘Bruce Vs Chocolate cake’ from the 1996 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda.’ I wanted it to be kind of like a filmed version of a weird play. I am a witch creature and my sidekick, Gobby, and I dance in our painted backdrop lair and plot mischief. Luckily our havoc bears liberating ends as the bewitched are released of their socially-expected, self-imposed obsessions and rituals. I wanted to make something grotesque and creepy and funny of course.”

Sasami talks about Sasami

“Ok, maybe they’re more like over-dramatic drafts of texts that you compose in the Notes section of your iPhone, but either way, they come from a place of getting something off my chest.” In an Instagram post announcing the release of “Callous,” a haunting ballad chronicling the disintegration of a relationship over wrenching guitar wails, she sums up the inspiration behind her engrossingly confessional debut more bluntly: “Everyone I fucked and who fucked me last year.”
