Bio

SARSAPARILLA is a reclusive bedroom producer and songwriter who spends her nights in her home studio attempting to recreate the sounds she hears in her head. She's getting closer. Slowly.

SARSAPARILLA's latest release Speaking in Tongues could best be described as op-shop pop. It's a beat driven sound collage featuring the vocals of Rubaiyat Howlader (Slow Ships) and samples recorded in op-shops around the Blue Mountains.

it's a curious mix that yearns and explores in a great way.

I love how both us (the listeners) and you (the artist) get this extended moment in the middle of this song to just bliss right out. I'm feeling radiant from this low key pop gem.
