Videos: Sarah P. – Golden Deer feat. Hiras

sarah p

Sarah P’s new single “Golden Deer”, taken from her recent solo debut EP “Free”, is out now. It comes with not one but three music videos which were directed by the Berlin based visual geniuses Schall & Schnabel. The music videos give the viewer the chance to choose how deep to dive into the dream.

About the song:
Golden Deer was inspired by a dream I had about this deer leading me to a magical forest where everything was possible. I guess, following the deer symbolized tearing down the fences I’ve built around me because of my fears. Throughout “Free” there has been this steady but slow walk towards the light. If “Dirty Sunday” that serves as the opener of the EP is dark and heavy, “Golden Deer”, the final song, is like an excited heart that’s pumping for the new beginnings.” – Sarah P.

About the video:
With our video, we visualize a dream. The colors, the pictures, the visual elements layer and in their multiplication a crazy interaction, and new associations. Some sequences remind of coral reefs, others of a kaleidoscope. A very own, powerful, poppy, and experimental image language and dynamic was created, bringing an atmosphere that is charming and playful at the same time.” – Pierre Horn & Eileen Huhn (Schall & Schnabel)

Within a short time Sarah P.’s song “Little Soul” (of her recent solo EP “Free”) gained more than 155.000 plays in the past couple of months on Spotify. With today’s video release Sarah shares an article on the true meaning behind the song, sending a powerful message to other people who, after experiencing abuse, felt lost but rose at last, like a phoenix.

Video: Sarah P. – I’d Go


Below, you can watch Sarah P.‘s new video “I’d Go“, taken from “Free“, her newly released EP & solo debut after leaving her previous band Keep Shelly in Athens.

This is obviously a homemade video (the song is also homemade, btw – I recorded its vocals at home with my phone). The past two years I’ve been constantly searching for the home I’ve come to find in Berlin. Now, all happy and settled, I’m celebrating by sharing my music and a video that’s showing the real me. I’m not the “mystery girl”, I’m not the “mysterious Sarah P.” – I never was. I’m a childish woman and nobody can stop me from being one. If there’s anything I stand for with all my heart is the “Go be you” motto!” – Sarah P.

Video directed by Kemara Pol. In case you missed it, check out Sarah’s Q&A session with our blog here.

“Free” is the EP newly released by Sarah P., its cover art depicting a full-grown yet embryonic yin yang, promising messages of peace & rebirth, renewal, and, essentially: freedom. The artist Sarah P., having recently separated from the popular indie group Keep Shelly In Athens (in which she was lead singer), clearly enjoys the freedom of music making as a solo artist. This latest endeavor is a love letter to her inner psyche, to the rich and untamed expression within — “I wanted it to escalate” says Sarah, “I wanted it to have many colors.” The album is a personal journey, following the rich palette of emotion and feeling associated with life’s darkest lows, along with the brilliance of finding light once again.

Q&A: Sarah P.


Sarah Anna Psalti, known as Sarah P., is a singer, songwriter and actress hailing from Greece. Her music career started in 2010, as the frontwoman of the Athenean dream pop duet Keep Shelly in Athens. After she parted ways with the band in early 2014, she relocated to Berlin to start fresh. Sarah P. has collaborated with many artists, including Sun Glitters, Mmoths, The New Division and many more.

Her own music is minimalistic and inspired from nineties sounds. The genre she identifies with is Pop/R’n’B. While having a sinister music touch, her positive intentions deliver a clear message. Sarah P. is not just a person, but a movement that empowers every single person who’s about to begin new. With her music she invites everyone to pack the bad memories in a box and start a journey towards becoming their own dream heroes.

Today Sarah P. has her birthday (#TeamDec14) and she celebrates it by releasing her debut solo EP, called “Free“.

We caught up with Sarah for a small chat about “Free”, her musical influences and her next plans. Read our q&a session and make sure to stream “Free EP” in its entirety below.


Zac: Singer, songwriter and actress. How do you manage your time?

Sarah: I combine them all! Let’s be real, I haven’t done that much acting, but only a couple of things here’s and there’s. I kind of miss it, but being an actor means you should be dedicated to your art more than 100% and I cannot promise that. I’d say that I’m an artist and because of the fact the music industry is really fucked up, I’ve become my own promoter, label, etc. I have reached a point that I simply don’t want to give away the control – I know exactly what I want and it’s easier (and faster) for me to just go for it. If I’m changing hats between different positions, that’s my art, its promotion and EraseRestart. My team and me are the definition of DIY and it’s true that sometimes we lose the track of time. So, to answer your question, I always feel that I have no time. I pretty much work 24/7 to keep up with everything.

Zac: When did your music journey begin? Where do your musical influences come from?

Sarah: My parents blew inside me their love for the music. They were taking me to all places were good music was played – whether that was a bar, a club or a concert venue. They were always taking me with them. They also signed me up for piano and keyboards lessons that I followed till the point that I felt too cool for it (that’s one of the few things that if I could go back in time and talk to my younger self, I’d tell her to get herself together). I was also part of choirs, like during all my school years.

As for my influences, all kinds of music have had a certain impact on me – from the cheesiest pop to classic music. If I had to pick a music genre that’s somehow shaped me that would be post-punk/dark wave. That’s the music that I always put on to relax, feel better and unload.

Zac: Tell us more about your debut EP, what “Free” means to you? Which is your favorite song?

Sarah: “Free” is like an anthology. It’s all about joining the actual adulthood, freeing yourself from the past and taking all matters to your own hands. Growing up comes at different points for each and every of us – it has nothing to do we the actual age, that’s just a number! “Free” is a really personal album and at the same time a call to its listeners to get off their couches, get out of their comfort zone and live their dreams. It’s calling them to be the people who they want to be. My generation has lost its focus. We live fast, work hard but get paid too less and go with the flow, expecting to grow old and die. We stopped fighting because we think that we don’t have the time for it. “Free” and myself as a human being living on planet earth aim to be this call to action. On the EP, I’m reporting the decision making and the (sometimes rough) journey of mine to reach where I am now. Nobody said it’s easy to be free!

All songs mean something special to me. I love “I’d Go” because it sounds naive but it’s super cheeky (if you pay attention to the lyrics). But it’s hard to choose.. “Little Soul” is a difficult song, but whenever I sing it I get so emotional because it is super personal and takes me back to really hard times. “Golden Deer” is a song we made together with Greek artist/producer/talented man Hiras and it’s also special since it serves as the “catharsis” of the EP. I cannot pick just one!

Zac: Which is the ideal place to listen to your music?

Sarah: Wherever it feels like home.

Zac: Athens, Berlin. Which city inspires you most?

Sarah: I’m an Athenean. I am born and raised in Athens and lived there till I was 24. Athens will always inspire me and in my opinion it’s one of the most special places in the world. Greece, in general, is one of the most special places in the world. My “Greekness” will never wear off, you know? From the other hand, Berlin is still somehow new to me and I have to admit that’s truly inspiring. I don’t go out that often, but the area I live is a new age Babel. Multi-culti, international and a bit crazy. Strangely, it reminds me of Athens and sometimes I see no difference. I feel that I am in the same city. On top of it all, wherever I go I hear Greek – like everywhere. It doesn’t really feel I’ve moved away. Athens is in my heart and Berlin has become my new home. Both cities are charming in their own way and inspiring because they’re heavenly, but in a sleazy way.

Zac: Which are your favorite tracks/artists at the moment?

Sarah: My favorite album of the year is the one that Editors made. I’ve been listening to “In Dream” obsessively. It is the only album of the last years that I can listen to it from the top to the end and not skip a tune.

Zac: What was the first record/album you bought?

Sarah: It was “Xessaloniki” by the amazing Greek band Xylina Spathia.

Zac: How do you chill out?

Sarah: I never chill out. I am always kind of intense. I am not a chill person, I don’t want to be a chill person. Music can calm me down, but “calm me down” like, for my standards.


Zac: What’s next? Should we expect a LP too? Any new collaborations?

Sarah: My album will come out in 2016, yes. It’s in the making! Touring with my band mates is something I’m looking forward to because I’ve missed the stage. As for collaborations, there are things coming up, there are talks but there’s nothing to announce already.

Zac: What are you most excited about right now?

Sarah: Playing my songs live, recording the LP and living fully this moment. This album, EraseRestart and the new version/direction of mine (artistically), mark the beginning of a beautiful journey.

Sarah P.’s solo debut EP “Free” is out on Dec 14th 2015 via EraseRestart. To get a digital copy of the EP follow this link. To order one of the few vinyls pressed via ERASERESTART go here.

Sarah P. – Dirty Sunday


Ex-Keep Shelly in Athens frontwoman Sarah P. just dropped “Dirty Sunday”, the opening track of her upcoming solo debut EP “Free” (out Dec 14th via EraseRestart), via Soundcloud. “Dirty Sunday”, is a dark & moody electronic piece of beauty that will be available via all digital platforms from November 27th on.

Dear all,

Almost two years ago, somewhere in Nothern Europe, I had a truly dirty Sunday. What’s important after falling is to get up again and that’s what I did. Now, I find myself in Central Europe and although I can still relate to the icy, moody atmosphere of “Dirty Sunday”, I can guarantee to you that there is plenty of time to erase and restart. For all of us.

“Dirty Sunday” is the opener of “Free”. As I told you before, “Free” has this wide range of moods and that’s because it follows a journey of two years. The whole point of “Free” is to prove that it’s possible to start over. It’s not easy, but it’s possible – all you need is to believe and to see yourself where you want to be. “Dirty Sunday” is the moment that you realize that, in order to be happy, you need to change it all. Sometimes we lose track with our lives. It happens to each and every of us. We live fast and apparently, we don’t have the luxury to reflect on each decision we make. We don’t take the time to filter and think thoroughly. Instead of blaming ourselves or the people around us, we can choose to move forward and make it better. It sounds like a brave move, but I believe that all of us have this strength inside us to pull that through.

On Friday 27/11/15 “Dirty Sunday” will be available on all digital platforms, but from today you can listen to it via Soundcloud. On Friday, I will share with you a link where you can pre-order you digital and/or physical copy of “Free”. It’s truly exciting times for my team and me. I really look forward to sharing my work with you.

To conclude and let you listen to the song, I will repeat myself once again. The times we live in are historic. Don’s stay out of the loop – get informed and discuss your thoughts with other people. It’s up to us to change things. All we need is to take it on our hands. Let’s be honest and brave. Let’s be bold. If we know who we are and what we want for us and our children, then we have nothing to fear. We should stop looking back and start over now. Let’s focus on the future. Let’s erase and restart.

With love,


Live Dates:
Dec 12 – UK – London – Birthdays (Record Release Show)
Jan 14 – NL – Groningen – Eurosonic Noorderslag
Jan 25 – DE – Berlin – Privatclub

Video: Imaginary War – Made A Decision


“Made A Decision” by IMAGINARY WAR is OUT NOW! The single’s video was shot in the woods of Berlin and tells a twisted fairy tale in a creepy romantic mood. Together with singer, songwriter & actress Sarah P. (who will release her solo debut EP “Free” on Dec 14th) and actor Pedros Mandalos, director Dimitra Mitsaki created an unusual love story.

“Made a Decision” is the soundtrack to an unwritten movie. It is about strong decisions and their comforting energy. Decisions for a special person, decisions that leave the bitter taste of an unknown future with no second chance, good or bad, whatever may come. “Made a Decision” pulls all the stops from slow, empathic pop to majestic stadium rock in one song. As in their previous single, “The Way We Feel”, the band again reaches for the broadest possible sound picture and plays out the love for huge waves, slowly piling up on fragile pieces.

Sarah P.’s EP “Free” is out on December 14th 2015 via EraseRestart.

Sarah P. – I’d Go



“I’d Go”, the first single of Sarah P.’s upcoming EP “Free”, just premiered via Kaltblut Magazine and is now available for streaming on Soundcloud. This song was the last brick of her EP. It was written and recorded spontaneously in only one afternoon and is a rather positive song about deciding to move forward – no matter what.

On her first solo EP, the Athenean songsmith & former frontwoman of Keep Shelly in Athens is exploring the journey of breaking free from one’s demons. “Free” is unfolding in seven songs and is divided in two parts/emotions. The first part is about those moments when one knows that it’s about time to change things but because of the society’s rules and standards, this person is left high and dry. The second part is watching this person revolting again all those philistines who put him/her down. “Free” will be released on Sarah P.’s birthday on Dec 14th via her very own label ERASERESTART.

“I’d go” is the exact moment when the heroine of this story decides to get out of her comfort zone and to -reluctantly in the beginning but fiercely by the end – fight and break from her chain ball. Let the uplifting pop song will take you on a mind trip:

“I’d Go” will be available on all streaming services and digital stores on the 18th of September.
