Bio

SARSAPARILLA is a bedroom producer and songwriter. They draw influences from far afield to create beats using found sounds and samples.

SARSAPARILLA teamed up with singer/songwriter Rubaiyat Howlader (Slowships) and producer Pete Holz (Gang of Youths, Peking Duk) to bring their songs into the world.

Drawing on the work of fruit fingering artists such as Stephanie Sarley, SARSAPARILLA presents to the world a DIY piece of video art about HEARTBREAK as her first music video.
