Sadie is the moniker of Brooklyn-based producer and songwriter Anna Schwab. Her debut EP 'Nowhere,’ co-produced by Joe Valle (Wet) and Maya Laner (True Blue & Porches), is forthcoming this June. Sadie’s melancholic pop songs are filled with catchy autotune hooks that float above her spacious production. Drawing from elements of hyperpop, her songs are speckled with bright, plucky synths, and distorted basses.
Classically trained on the piano from the age of 5, Sadie began using Ableton to experiment with production in her last year of college, heavily influenced by the compilations and releases from the UK collective PC Music. Inspired most by those pushing the boundaries of pop, her biggest influences range from the likes of Charli XCX, AG Cook, SOPHIE, Bladee, Bjork, and Kate Bush. “I’ve always been drawn to sad songs that make you want to dance,” she says. Sadie wrote and produced the EP over the course of two and a half years, before bringing the songs to Joe Valle and Maya Laner. “the three of us really clicked creatively right off the bat and I think they really helped bring the songs to life.”
Sadie will be releasing her debut EP, Nowhere on June 14 of 2022.
