Today, Sunniva Lingård aka Sassy 009 announces her mixtape Heart Ego (out October 22 via Luft Recordings), alongside the crystalline and hard-edged ‘Mystery Boy‘ single and video. LISTEN + WATCH HERE.
“Heart Ego is the most ambitious project I’ve done so far in my career, yet the project I have had the most trouble defining. Framing it as a mixtape was like finding home. The actual structuring and understanding of my compositions is simply a result of how I think it should feel, and not necessarily in line with a structure someone else completely understands,” explains Sassy 009 on her new project.
Those who’ve followed the path of Oslo-based Sassy 009 and the constantly fluid, blurred edges of her hallucinogenic pop, will know that she’s an artist that follows emotion and mood, over strict narrative and composition. Through 2019’s EP KILL Sassy 009 and subsequent tracks, including a collaboration with Clairo, Lingård’s pushed the project through re-imagined techno, breathy Scandi-pop and hyper R&B in a way that suggests an artist as excited as the listener to hear what might come next – as if each track acts as its own sandbox within which Lingård’s allowed to play in.
The accompanying video finally gives an insight into Sassy 009‘s other passion: hitting the slopes with her badass all-female skate/snowboard crew Sensesse. The footage follows Sunni and her pals performing their favourite winter hobby and majestically gliding through the mountain tops of Norway. WATCH ABOVE and stay tuned for Heart Ego.
