SASAMI – “I’m In Love With A Girl” (Big Star Cover)

Los Angeles-based Sasami Ashworth played synths in Cherry Glazerr from 2015 until last year, when she left the band to pursue a solo career as SASAMI. Earlier this year, the Artist To Watch released her excellent self-titled debut. She returns today with a cover of Big Star’s 1974 track “I’m In Love With a Girl.”

“I love the whole Radio City album, and there is something to be said about the magic of an album’s ender — especially a brief and unfeigned acoustic number that’s over before it hardly began,” SASAMI says in a statement. “[Big Star frontman Alex] Chilton’s writing is admirable because the songs are loaded but not whiny — a delicate and beautiful place to be.”

Listen to SASAMI’s “I’m In Love With a Girl” cover and the original song below.
