HUNGER PREMIERE: Sasha Keable drops soulful visuals for playful new track

'That's The Shit' is the latest offering from South London's Sasha Keable.

Just 24 years old, Keable is bringing sounds worthy of the seventies stars she admires. Brought up on soul and hip hop, the Colombian songstress draws influence from the likes of Donny Hathaway, Lauryn Hill, Marvin Gaye and the late, great Aretha Franklin. Dropping the killer EP Lemongrass & Limeleaves back in 2014, the artist has channelled her skill and dedication into a new musical era, and is making serious waves with what she’s created.

After a four year hiatus, Sasha Keable has returned to bring us the breath of fresh air we need. New single ‘That’s The Shit’ is as soulful as ever – packed with jazz inflections, fluttering melodies and pitch shifted guitars – but this time with a bit of an edge. Those signature brassy vocals take down our perceptions, giving lessons in the lilts. With a video directed by Hector Dockrill, the new track is catchy and clever with the intimate visuals to match.

Catching up on what went into the track, Sasha went on to explain the playful message behind the soulful vibes:

“‘That’s The Shit’ was written over three years ago with a producer called Prgrshn. It’s a bit of a piss take to all the men who go to clubs to buy bottles with money they don’t really have and the women who hover around them just to get a few drinks or a shag….!”
