MP3: Sudie – “Van Morrissey”

The 23-Year-Old Dallas Singer/Songwriter/Producer Delivers An Anthology Of Her Soul On Debut EP, Premiered By Central Track



Critical Praise for Sudie:

If the work under her belt is any indicator, a staggering talent like Sudie’s could very well be mentioned one day in the same breath as some of North Texas’ most notable women in music. – Dallas Observer News

“‘Heart Attack’ is the first taste of the 22-year-old’s sound that combines pop sensibilities with classical training and a dash of experimental DIYism.” Indie Shuffle

“Sudie is as every bit as talented as has been reported. She has a crowd-pleasing ability to carry a note to improbably soaring heights.”D Magazine

“Even if you don’t know Sudie just yet, you will. That much just seems inevitable at this point.” – Central Track

“Her style fuses the ache of Jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday with the same eccentricity reminiscent of European artists Björk and Karin Dreijer Andersson.”Saint Heron

“Sudie has been on my radar for some time now, and from the looks of things she’s garnering compliments from others as well with each drop.”Artistic Manifesto

The Single and EP:

“My love being away from you is having a hole through my body where my heart’s supposed to be,” sings Dallas artist Sudie in the final words of her harrowing single “Van Morrissey,” the closing track from her debut EP. “Even if it takes forever, wait for me with as much passion as I love you and as much pain that I feel when I miss you,” she adds earlier in the song, which merges influence from Van Morrison and Morrissey while remaining a chapter distinctive to Sudie story.

Handling the vocals, production, and songwriting, Sudie delivered her anticipated project via Black Milk‘s Computer Ugly label earlier this week. “We sing the 23-year-old’s praises because her ethereal, jazz-influenced dream-pop merits it,” said Central Track in their premiere of the EP. “The six-song short-player finds Sudie flashing the same lilting vocals and elegantly alluring productions we’ve come to appreciate from the young artist already — only now as part of a full set.”

Sudie is looking to forge new lanes in music with her versatile style, utilizing her wide background in music that ranges from opera and voice training and her teenage experiences in Dubai. Prior to performing at several SXSW showcases last month, Jezebel premiered Sudie’s “Heartattack” video. This followed a string of press coverage and single releases, including a Dallas Observer cover story last year. Earlier this year, Sudie released the EP’s opener, “Bruise,” which debuted with Indie Shuffle. “Sudie certainly channels her inner Björk on this one while still adding her own flavor to the self-produced single,” said Okayplayer of the track. “I’m really excited to share this EP with people,” Sudie says. “Each song is like an individual piece of my soul, an anthology. I’ve studied music for most of my life so this is a collage of those things I’ve picked up, learned and been inspired by along the way, with my own twist.”

Sudie Background:

Merging classical training with a unique DIY recording process, Sudie is an artist who’s truly forging her own territory. The 22-year-old singer, songwriter and musician, describes her sound as “something jazzy meets kind of crazy… if Bjork had arranged something for Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday to sing over.” It’s a sound she’s crafted all by herself, utilizing a pair of keyboards, a cheap microphone and a MacBook inside the confines of her tiny bathroom in Dallas, Texas, that’s taken her to Dubai and back. The result of that unusual process is a distinctive but accessible musical style, which fuses confessional, personal lyrics with influences from across the musical spectrum. Sudie released her debut self-titled EP via Black Milk’s Computer Ugly record label.
