Sasami – “Take Care” Video & “Free” (Feat. Tim Presley)

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. Today, she returns with a brand new track called “Take Care” and a reworked full-band version of her song “Free,” featuring vocals by Tim Presley of White Fence in place of original collaborator Devendra Banhart.

“Take Care” is the A-Side of a digital 7″ with “Free” as the B-Side. The former track comes with a new self-directed music video, in which SASAMI sings out at sea on a rowboat, smashes a car, and sets her possessions on fire. “Being alone is such a chore,” she sighs over a winding riff, settling into a cadence that reminds me of Aimee Mann. “I could take care of you.”

Check out “Take Care” and “Free” below.
