Dark pop artist, Sadye has released her cinematic new single, “Dark Side” today. The track, which is carried by ominous synth, soaring strings and Sadye’s infectious, inviting vocals touches on the hesitation to open up too much at the start of a relationship. Listen to the song now below.
Sadye confides on the meaning behind the music, “I was falling in love and I wanted to know everything. Not everyone just rips themselves wide open right away, and having to be patient was healthy but it was killing me. I wanted to write about it in the most honest way I could and I wanted to be dramatic because I am.”
Sadye transcends the limits of experimental and mainstream alt-pop, challenging listeners and breathing new life into the genre with otherworldly mystique and uncompromising vision. From humble beginnings as a small town singer/songwriter, Sadye writes with depth and heart, often taking on unexpectedly dark and heavy themes. Inspired by her intense struggle with cancer, discovering self-worth, and dealing with toxic relationships, her lyrics are steeped in a sarcastic form of catharsis as she learns to love her literal, and figurative, scars; a theme beautifully juxtaposed by catchy, modern melodies and edgy pop production, appealing to fans of Kim Petras and Charlie XCX to Nine Inch Nails and The Weeknd.
Sadye’s debut single, “Biblical,” represents a rebirth of sorts, building on what came before, but charging forward without looking back – beautiful and catchy, yet dark and familiar, Sadye invites listeners to join her ethereal cult and indulge their deepest inhibitions. The song was added to coveted Spotify playlists including Obsessed, IT”S A BOP!, New Pop Picks, Night Pop and more as well as Apple’s New in Alternative, Amazon’s Breakthrough Pop, Girl Squad and Tidal’s Future Sounds.
