Who?

SAADI is the pseudonym for Boshra AlSaadI, the Syria born songwriter. She combines various influences on the electronic genre, making some fresh new tunes that are simultaneously danceworthy and laid back. She was recently featured on Pitchfork and has created quite a bit of buzz online, all leading up to the release of her new Bad City 12" EP.


How is it?

The EP starts off with the title track “Bad City,” which is led with a heavy bass line, followed by layers of vocals with zipping synth drizzled on top. “Pollen Seeking Bees” has the best piano line Regina Spektor never wrote, while SAADI adds her distinct vocal style to the mix. “Birds” is my favorite song from the EP, clocking in at under two minutes, but offering a fun and upbeat vibe, led by heavy synthesizer beats. Closing the disc is a cover of the Bob Dylan classic “Daddy You Been on My Mind,” and she surely takes a sharply contrasting path from the original. Following down the Imogen Heap rabbit hole, SAADI loops her voice to create the scene. With multiple “Oh’s," and "Ah’s” she finishes strong in true yuletide fashion, with bouncing vocal arrangements that would make a church choir shiver.

Although the Bad City EP may be short, it is definitely sweet. SAADI offers a lot of promise to a genre that is growing, but not at the right pace, nor in the right direction. She is a shining light on music that has been kept in the dark.

Electro-Synth Pop. Not sure I can really pinpoint an artist that sounds like her off the top of my head but if your into indie music and synthesizers I think you will like this.
