Saadi

Videos

That Saadis musical history reads like something out of a V.S. Naipaul novel is incidental. As the (entirely true) legend goes, Boshra al Saadi was born in Syria, sojourned in suburban Pennsylvania for a spin in Catholic school, ventured to NYCs Greenwich Village in her late teens with folksinger dreams, and cut her teeth as co-frontwoman for indie rock band Looker, before setting out on her own. Its an enchanting backstory no doubt, but it merely hints at the edges of the spirit of the songstress. Saadis relaxed, yet electro-happy brand of indie pop transcends era, simultaneously redolent of no wave, new romantic, afro disco, shoegaze, post punk, and that ever-present other. Her voice possesses that rare blend of churning passion and disembodied detachment. Its no surprise she cites Brian Eno as an influence, as her radiant sounds hearken both the 1970s pop-savvy and the latter-day electronic experiments of that musical wizard.
