SASAMI releases new song and video, "Take Care"
29th August 2019
Having just wrapped an extensive US tour in support of Snail Mail, Los Angeles songwriter and multi-instrumentalist SASAMI returns with a new single and video, "Take Care".
Of "Take Care", SASAMI says, "everyone has a destructive, reckless side- however much they choose or allow the world to see it. The video for 'Take Care' is about embracing that destructive side of you and forgiving yourself. Even when you are lost and want to give up, loving yourself and forgiving. Also there's a little reminder to donate to RAICESTEXAS.ORG because once you help yourself, you need to help others."
