“Maenads” is the title track of Sarah P.‘s latest EP, out on EraseRestart.
Known for her former participation in Keep Shelly in Athens, Sarah P. is going solo and experimenting with pop music since 2014. Recently, the Berlin-based singer-songwriter and producer unveiled her new EP, Maenads, which explores the female power: its magic, strength, and imperfect perfection. The project also comes with a series of videos that celebrate her Greek heritage with a strong mythological symbolic.
Following up on the visuals of “Lotus Eaters” and “Mneme“, Sarah P. is sharing today the last installment of her clip trilogy, just a few days before International Women’s Day 2019. With “Maenads”, the artist takes some distance from her usual ethereal electronic pop, embracing instead a disco rock that sounds more nervous and instinctive. Conveying a feeling of power and freedom, the track was actually inspired by the ancient Greek female followers of god Dionysus, who were known for their superhuman strength, sticking together and fighting for their beliefs.
Directed by Colette Pomerleau, the accompanying visuals were shot in Berlin and deal with an issue that is near and dear to her heart: mental illness. About the video, Sarah P. detailed:
Sarah P. is already readying the release of her sophomore album Plotting Revolutions for 2020. In the meantime, watch her brand new video “Maenads” below.
