"I love the whole Radio City album, and there is something to be said about the magic of an album's ender - especially a brief and unfeigned acoustic number that's over before it hardly began," SASAMI says of the song. "[Big Star frontman Alex] Chilton's writing is admirable because the songs are loaded but not whiny - a delicate and beautiful place to be."
SASAMI's self-titled debut was released in March via Domino, with Stereogum naming her an "Artist to Watch" and Pitchfork praising the album's "union of synthesizer decay and guitar reverb that embodies shoegaze's supernatural ability to conjure sadness from the void."
Amazon Music listeners can find SASAMI's cover of "I'm In Love With a Girl" on the playlist "The Setlist," a collection of what's going down in indie rock's thriving underground. Customers can also simply ask, "Alexa play the Amazon Original by SASAMI" in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
SASAMI is about to embark on a US tour opening for Snail Mail, with European dates to follow.
