"Lovely, delicate electronic-pop"

"A reflection on compassion"
Sabrina Song’s music is a blueprint for how to break and unbreak your own heart. Within a constant state of contemplation, Song works through overcoming self-doubt, loneliness, and growing pains. The sole producer and writer of her music, Song is a Long Island native now based in Brooklyn, and an alum of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. Drawing from indie singer-songwriter and indie rock influences like Samia, Carole King and Mitski, Song makes introspective, cathartic indie pop.
Usually a regular performer in NYC, Sabrina crafted sets for virtual festivals like Tigris Stay-In Fest and the first annual Voyeur Festival in 2020, while working towards the October release of her sophomore EP How's It Going To End? Featured in outlets like Fashionably Early and Pure Nowhere, the EP explores the impact of past relationships on future ones, weaving old voice memos and videos into the production of each track. Song premiered How's It Going To End? live in Sofar Sounds' Listening Room, landing her house-inspired single "Say It Like That" on the Spotify editorial "Keep Listening: Sofar’s Listening Room" playlist.
In April 2021, she returned with her single “Thaw,” and an accompanying music video directed by Zachary Dov Wiesel (Mia Gladstone, Rodney Chrome). “Thaw,” featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds: Indie” editorial playlist, explores the slowness of healing, and how painful change can be even when it’s for the better. Her live performance of the single for NPR’s 2021 Tiny Desk Contest was a favorite of Phoebe Bridgers, leading her to be featured in NPR’s Top Shelf series on All Songs Considered.
Song finished out the year with a successful string of opening slots for Moon Kissed at Elsewhere Zone One, Hannah Jadagu at the Sultan Room, and Sarah Kinsley at Mercury Lounge. Inspired by nights out in Brooklyn and the transition in and out of isolation, her 2021 single "Good Night" premiered in NYLON in October.
Most recently, Song performed as an official artist at SXSW, and released her latest single and video "Doors." Partnering again with Wiesel to direct the video, "Doors" garnered praise from i-D magazine and Earmilk, and landed Song on the cover of Tidal's Rising Pop playlist. In addition to new production credits on Dana Mccoy's To Those Who Wait EP and Camp Kona's single "Wait On You," Song joined Brooklyn band Pom Pom Squad on violin and background vocals for their sets at Lollapalooza. She recently completed a mini Northeast tour promoting her new EP When It All Comes Crashing Down, out December 9th.
