Sasami announces first single for Domino

Domino has signed former Cherry Glazerr member Sasami to a new record deal. She will release a double A-side seven-inch, featuring new songs ‘Callous’ and ‘Not The Time’, on 26 Oct.

“‘Not The Time’ and ‘Callous’ are basically entries in the diary that is my first record of songs”, she explains. “Maybe it’s a mix of a diary and a collection of letters; written but never sent, to people I’ve been intimately involved with in one way or another. 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”.

She continues: “I wrote both of these songs on tour on a guitar on my iPad with GarageBand plugins and Moog 15 app sounds and then re-recorded them in the studio onto tape with really great tones. So it’s kind of like emotionally scribbling a letter on a tear and snot-stained napkin and then re-writing it on fancy papyrus paper to make it look like you have your shit together”.

Sasami will play a handful of shows in the UK next month. Here are the dates:

1 Nov: London, The Shacklewell Arms
2 Nov: Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
3 Nov: Bristol, Rough Trade
