SASAMI Soars On ‘Honeycrash’

Epic, stadium-sized songwriting...

SASAMI returns with soaring new single ‘Honeycrash’.

The songwriter’s exquisite ‘Squeeze’ album landed in 2022, sparking a lengthy spell on the road. Taking time out to recalibrate, SASAMI hits the road this summer with DIIV – and she’s got an epic new single to celebrate.

Out now, ‘Honeycrash’ is an arena-filling jewel, a song bursting with intense emotion. Wanting to incorporate Wagnerian grandeur with the intimacy of a therapy session, SASAMI hits upon something cinematic, but also quietly emotive.

Retaining a thirst for pop communication at its core, ‘Honeycrash’ is a larger-than-life return, backed by some dramatic, powerful visuals from Andrew Thomas Huang.

SASAMI explains…

I wanted to write a song with all the drama of a 19th century classical opera but with the patience and understanding of someone in therapy in 2024. Finding a love so great you’re willing to persist through the elements, even toward certain death to bear its ravishment.

It’s about wanting to fight for the pinnacle of passion and desire but knowing that you can’t change or rush someone else’s feelings or where they’re at. But with a guitar as my sword and my steed. I have been so fortunate to find a collaborator in Andrew, and together we made a sexy little drama of our own. The ‘Honeycrash’ video is a peek into the new world that I have been building and teasing out on stage. I am really thrilled to unleash this first of many new songs in an era of melodrama, romance, and hooks of course.

Tune in now.
