Today, SASSY 009 shares her new track ‘Here Comes The Weekend’ via Luft RecordingsLISTEN HERE.

The pulsating Billie Ellish-meets-peak-time-Berghain outing sees the Oslo-based musician enter a new realm of the dance floor as she sends tremors through its ceilings with her captivating vocals, crystallised synths and razor-sharp drums. The former Soundcloud username of Oslo-based musician Sunniva LingardSASSY 009 leans into the same nordic-pop-cool vibe as Robyn, with a rough electronic edge like Yaeji and Doss. Previously a trio and now solo, her 2019 album KILL SASSY 009 made waves across i-DPitchforkNTSResident AdvisorDazed and more for its coarse take on electro-pop snares that crunch, glitched out bass and hooks that linger. 

Now solo, Sunniva is ready to share her next lot of new music by way of ‘Here Comes The Weekend’. Speaking on the track, SASSY 009 personally observes the darker side of a hedonistic lifestyle: “When I started making this song, I envisioned myself sitting in a dark little apartment on a red leather couch staring into the smoke of a joint laying on the table. It led me into thinking of how complex the process of escaping a “sober” reality really is, and how I’ve willingly put myself in situations where self-control is on puzzling terms. ‘Here Comes The Weekend’ is all about that existentially risky moment of self-realisation when things have already gone too far.”

The track follows her much-loved return with the “captivating new pop number” (DIYBlue Racecar and the first step into her new innovative adventure SASSY009.WORLD with the retro Blue Racecar game. ‘Here Comes The Weekend’ unlocks the next SASSY009.WORLD component ‘Sassychat’, which gives fans and the audience a chance to chat all sorts directly to Sunni – airing this Sunday at 1700 BST / 1800 CET / 0200 AEST.
