You're not daydreaming.

Last week, a track from an artist called Sarsha Simone landed in my new music inbox, which led me to ask the following questions: who the hell is she and why isn't this song 50 times longer? In asking these questions - specifically the first part - I found out that we covered her last summer when she released a song called 'Casualty'. If reincarnation is real, I wanna come back as someone/something with a memory longer than two months.

Her latest track, 'Daydream', is built on the foundations of 'Casualty' but you can sense her confidence level is way higher. And it's sort of filthy too. We like filth.

Listen to both tracks below, along with a short Q&A with Sarsha - in which we find out about her forthcoming plans, Chloë Sevigny, and being a blood-thirsty child.


How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

Dreamer, Adaptable, Passionate, Adventurous, Ambitious

When was the last time you tried something new?

The other week when I went to a gaming arcade. I had never stepped into one before and it was like falling into a black hole of neon and pinball goodness. I definitely tapped into my inner child and enjoyed playing Pacman a little too much.

If a movie was made about your life, what actor/actress would play you and what would the film be called?

Chloë Sevigny would play me because I think she has the versatility to pull off my complexities. The film would be called The Buddha Barbie.

What is the worst thing your parents caught you doing as a kid?

When I was in daycare I bit another child till they drew blood. I really have no idea how my mum kept her cool with such a blood-thirsty child.

What inspires you?

People and the qualities they have that make them interesting and unique. I could people watch all day. It really does give me so much inspiration for not only my songwriting but life in general.

What did you dream about last night?

I had a dream about my manager's love life, that's when you know you're spending too much time together.

Lastly, what are you currently working on?

I'm working on my EP, Bodhi, which is about pushing through life's imaginary boundaries and unapologetically being you. I've been working on this for the past year with a new Australian-Nigerian production team called Project Peters. I'm really excited to finally birth this baby to the world. It's been a long process, but I hope that when people hear it then they'll understand me a bit better. The EP is a personal project and if you listen to the lyrics I think it will explain a lot about myself and how I see the world. Bodhi is also the first in a 3-part series called The Buddha Barbie, so expect lots of music from me in the next little while.
