The follow-up to her 2020 critically praised debut Only Child, I BLAME THE WORLD finds Sasha Alex Sloan embracing the weary apathy of the world around her and ushering in a bold new era of musicality.
Sasha describes the new album as an “honest, non-hopeful” collection of work, distinctly encapsulating the all-too-relatable emotions of despondency and isolation through unflinching and insightfully nuanced lyricism and a razor-sharp sensibility.
Sasha offered the first taste of the album with “WTF,” a telling indicator of what fans can expect from the record from its title alone. “Same shit, different year, ‘til I disappear,” croons Sasha on the percussion-led, indie rock-driven track, as she melodically remarks on the endless rat race of life and the sometimes seemingly futile task of finding a bigger purpose.
After emerging in 2017 and appearing on a handful of high-profile collaborations, Sasha Alex Sloan had garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide before even releasing a debut album. Sasha has established herself as a true wordsmith, crafting emotionally rich, left-of-center releases filled with potent melodies and poignant lyrics. Praised by The New York Times, Billboard, SPIN, Rolling Stone, PAPER, UPROXX, and more, Sasha gained attention through the release of hit singles including “Lie,” “Normal,” “Older,” and “Dancing With Your Ghost,” leading to sold-out headlining tours in North America and Europe.
