We’ve been in love with Sarah Jaffe for as long as we can remember. After all, what’s not to love in a Texas girl with a retro new wave predilection?
She’s got an amazing new album, the tellingly titled Bad Baby – NPR described it as “a mission statement for a singer-songwriter who’s all about finding deeper meaning in the gray areas of modern life.” The title track is synth-pop nirvana.
But perhaps our fave track is the anxiously cool “No Worries,” which is Sarah at her glorious best: moody, ennui-laden atmospherics, irresistible hooks, and those languorously sexy vocals (the 80s-chic electro-handclaps are a definite bonus). It’s got a bit of Depeche Mode darkness, a bit of Talking Heads strangeness.
