      Sasha Sloan

      with Winnetka Bowling League
      Call her your new best friendSasha Sloan is that girl you can chat about deep cuts with in a diner until four AM between cigarettes and coffee.Sasha Sloan is a normal, yet completely complicated human. Sasha Sloan is totally sad, but exuberantly funny. Sasha Sloan is from South Boston, but lives in Los Angeles. Sasha Sloan melted a Hershey bar on her laptop, was too lazy to get a new one, and writes all of her lyrics on a refurbished iPhone 5. Sasha Sloan describes her style as Target chic. Sasha Sloan is trying to speak to the quiet girls at the party who struggle with what they look like. Sasha Sloan writes songs you can listen to late at night when youre all fucked up and aloneand maybe feel better.A self-proclaimed low key masochist who isnt happy all the time, Sasha Sloan is real. I would say Im just someone you can chill with and talk to, she affirms. Im someone who doesnt have their shit together, but is trying. I dont knowyou could also just say, Im a loser, she laughs.Self-deprecation aside, this kind of honesty quietly cemented her as an unassuming phenom. As the story goes, a viral photo ironically kicked off her career after she started writing songs at just ten-years-old. At 18, her parents decided to paint the house. They took the opportunity to write dork under her window with an arrow, which was super embarrassing. Still, she posted the pic on reddit, and it exploded. So, she added her Soundcloud link to the post and landed a publishing deal with as a result. Dropping out of Berklee College of Music, she moved to L.A. at 19-years-old. A whirlwind followed. As she primarily penned her own music, she also wrote Never Be The Same and OMG for Camila Cabello and featured on Kygos This Town and Falls for ODESZA. In 2017, she released the songs off her first EP sad girl independently prior to being signed. Within a year, Runaway, Normal, and Ready Yet each surpassed 19 million Spotify streams, while averaging over 4 million monthly listeners on the platform. Along the way, she signed to RCA Records and assembled her 2018 EP loser alongside Ready Yet collaborator and producer King Henry. It captures my life from nineteen until twenty-three, she goes on. Its more multi-faceted than sad girl was, because I got more time to sit down and ask myself, What do I want to say and how do I want to say it? Some of it is loneliness. Some of it is about my parents. Some of it is about falling in love with a new person and being vulnerable to them. It deals with not feeling good enough as a songwriter. Im always asking everyone around me, Does this sound like basic white girl pop? Thats my biggest fear. Theres a focus on lyrics and real instruments, which I really love. It just covers every insecurity Ive ever had.In doing so, it might dispel some of those insecurities. Right out of the gate, loser garnered acclaim from Billboard, Flaunt, and more. The opener The Only pairs her delicate delivery with sparse acoustic guitar as the lyrics detail, being lonely and not knowing what to do when I moved to L.A. Meanwhile, airy guitar and minimal production underscore the sweet Chasing Parties where she admits, My boyfriend and I found out we were so happy to just stay at home with each other instead of going out. Older hinges on a heartbreakingly confessional, yet catchy chorus, The older I get, the more that I see, my parents arent heroes, theyre just like meLovin is hard, it dont always work, just try your best not to get hurtI used to be mad, but now I know, sometimes its better to let someone go. It just hadnt hit me yet, the older I get.It just means my parents arent perfect, and my dad and I have a really strange relationship, she admits. My mom and my dad married, divorced, and remarriedlike a bunch of times. I never really understood why everything was always so off and fucked up. My dad was 24 when I was born. We have the same birthday. Im turning 24 next year. I thought about how I could never take care of a child at 24. After my first big breakup, I saw how hard relationships could be. I understood and sympathized with my parents more than ever. It hit me all at once and came out.In the end, youll feel right at home hanging out with Sasha Sloan.If one person out there is like, Oh shit, Ive felt like that, that would be dope, she leaves off. My favorite music makes me feel things and think about my own life. I hope you walk away feeling like you know me. That answer made no sense. Im such a loser, dude, she smiles.
