Sadye is ‘Pretty Traumatized’ In her New Single

Dark alt-pop artist Sadye has released her compelling new single “Pretty Traumatized,” inspired by her real-life recovery story of battling cancer.

Sadye’s music is deeply rooted in her personal journey, as she confides, “Pretty Traumatized is my origin story. This song is at the root of my escapism approach to music. It’s the first record I’ve written about everything I’ve been through medically and it helped me establish my superpower of creating these fantasies to save myself. It’s horror masked with humor. It’s the essence of me.”

Drawing from her intense struggle with cancer, toxic relationships, and self-discovery, Sadye’s lyrics exude a sarcastic form of catharsis as she embraces her literal and figurative scars. This theme is beautifully juxtaposed by catchy, modern melodies and edgy pop production, transcending the limits of mainstream pop and breathing new life into the genre with otherworldly mystique and an uncompromising vision.

Sadye’s music has garnered widespread acclaim, receiving adds to coveted Spotify playlists, including Obsessed, IT’S A BOP!, New Pop Picks, Night Pop, as well as Apple’s New in Alternative, Amazon’s Breakthrough Pop, Girl Squad, and Tidal’s Future Sounds. Challenging conventional notions of stardom, Sadye leans into her inconceivable “industry plant” aesthetic, prompting listeners to question the essence of celebrity and embracing emerging technology to bring her cult following into the future with exclusive digital rewards.

Produced by her regular collaborators Mike Green (Paramore, Sueco, Gwen Stefani, 5SOS, Paris Hilton) and Nico Stadi (Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo), “Pretty Traumatized” is a bouncy, nostalgic, dark-pop anthem. The track features airy keys punctuated by 80’s synth stabs and driving 808’s, showcasing Sadye’s signature tongue-in-cheek lyrics inspired by her real-life story of recovery, reminding listeners that it’s possible to embrace traumas and still exude confidence.
