A powerful ode to starting over.
There’s a stigma attached to making a clean break in your life. It’s expected that most of us gradually continue down the path we’re on with changes here or there. But to blow the whole thing up and start fresh can feel like an insurmountable task, even if you’re current life isn’t working for you. On “Call Me Home,” Sasami brings across an empathetic view to such a massive shift. Starting with acoustic chords, she builds the song into an eruptive, roaring mix of guitars, percussion and stormy synths. As the music swells, she gently sings, “I want you to know you’re not alone/I want you to know you can always call me/Home.”
“It’s about the darkness of feeling nothing and the creeping ache of apathy that can swallow you whole if you let it. It’s about skipping town, driving all night and knowing you’ll always have a home to come back to,” Sasami said about the song.
“Call Me Home” will appear on Sasami’s new album, Squeeze, out on Feb. 25 via Domino.
