Theatrical, and grotesque – the visually arresting live performances of Sarahsson are something to behold. By fusing classical music with metal, experimental electronics, and hardcore, the Bristol-based composer, producer, performance artist, and DJ creates a distinctly personal sound world in which she explores themes like queerness, identity, history, and belonging. Moments of sublime beauty are pierced by extreme sound design, destabilising rhythms, and earth-shattering percussion.
A distinctly unique voice in the current landscape of electronic music, Sarahsson brings together her unique ear for melody, rich textural harmony, and dramatic narratives to achieve something genuinely awe-inspiring and timeless on her debut album The Horgenaith (2022). The live rendition of her album is just as intense and immediate, a visceral experience that rejects categorisation and simply needs to be experienced.
