Loser EP With Autographed Sleeve
Purchase includes vinyl sleeve signed by Sasha Sloan.
Rising singer-songwriter Sasha Sloan's latest EP Loser is now available on vinyl! The new EP follows her breakout 2018 record sad girl, and includes the recently released tracks “Older”, “Chasing Parties”, “Faking It”, and “The Only”.
“It captures my life from nineteen until twenty-three. It’s 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. I’m always asking everyone around me, ‘Does this sound like basic white girl pop?’ That’s my biggest fear. There’s a focus on lyrics and real instruments, which I really love. It just covers every insecurity I’ve 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 aren’t heroes, they’re just like me…Lovin’ is hard, it don’t always work, just try your best not to get hurt…I used to be mad, but now I know, sometimes it’s better to let someone go. It just hadn’t hit me yet, the older I get.”
“It just means my parents aren’t perfect, and my dad and I have a really strange relationship,” she admits. “My mom and my dad married, divorced, and remarried—like 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. I’m 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, you’ll feel right at home hanging out with Sasha Sloan.
“If one person out there is like, ‘Oh shit, I’ve 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. I’m such a loser, dude.”
