    Lara (feat. Clairo)
    [3:40]

…and yes, it’s an homage to Microsoft era Lara Croft. This crisp and catchy crossover tune offers the best of pop, indie and electronic music in one dreamy power package. A result of coincidences, the internet and great pop sensibility, “Lara” came about in 2018 when SASSY 009 happened to be somewhat close by to Clairo’s whereabouts in North America, and the energy of mutual admiration led the two artists together. The tune shows a new side of Sunniva Lindgård aka SASSY 009’s productions, with it’s soft synths and underwater world soundscapes. It’s still very much SASSY 009 however, showcased through the heavily distorted drums and leftfield breaks. In parallel, Clairo’s great sense of storytelling and melody shines through as strong as ever, with a vocal hook that will stick with you entering this next decade...

Sassy 009

“‘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 Sunniva Lingård aka SASSY 009 on her mixtape. 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.
