New Video: Say She She Share Gorgeous Visual for Slinky and Shimmering “Astral Plane”

Acclaimed NYC-based disco outfit and JOVM mainstays Say She She — Piya Malik, Sabrina Cunningham and Nya Gazelle Brown — released their critically applauded, eight-song, Sergio Rios-produced full-length debut Prism through Karma Chief Records last year. 

Prism saw the trio quickly establishing a sound that nodded heavily at 70s girl groups — multi-part female harmonies paired paired with funky, disco-inspired arrangements played by a backing band featuring some of New York’s most talented and accomplished players, featuring former members of  AntibalasCharles Bradley and His ExtraordinariesSharon Jones and The Dap KingsThe ShacksTwin Shadow and others. Evoking a distinct Studio 54-era disco nostalgia, their work is imbued with a contemporary thematic grit paired with global dance floor influences.

Building upon a rapidly growing profile both nationally and internationally, the trio’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, the 16-song, Sergio Rios-produced Silver is slated for a September 29, 2023 release through Karma Chief Records. Reflecting on the group’s growth as songwriters, performers and artists as they enter a new phase of their art and careers, Silver derives its name from the element known as the metal of self-confidence and the mirror of the soul. With an emphasis on their now-trademark global disco sound, the JOVM mainstays sophomore album features material that ranges from protest anthems, Hindi-flecked songwriting and feel-good, disco-infused tracks, the album reminds listeners of the beauty in the world while firmly and boldly asserting their respective identities as modern femmes.

Largely written and recorded live-to-tape at Killion Sound Studio in North Hollywood, the analog recording session root the acclaimed trio’s sound in bedrock of old-fashioned, tonal warmth. But cutting the tracks live with their backing band, which also featured members of Rios’ Orgōne, the album captures the deeply special magic of communal creativity in the moment.

The album will feature “C’est Si Bon,” a funky disco love letter and summertime club anthem, built around a sinuous bass line, twinkling keys, space lasers paired with the trio’s gorgeous harmonies, penchant for big, catchy hooks, deep groves and expansive psychedelia-tinged song structures. Thematically, the song reminds the listener to seize the day and make their time count.

The album’s third and latest single “Astral Plane” is a slow-burning, Quiet Storm soul-inspired take on disco built around the trio’s yearning harmonies, sinuous bass lines, a silky, slinky groove and a series of head-nodding hooks. The result is classic love song rooted in craft, love and earnest, lived-in songwriting and performances.

Continuing their ongoing collaboration with director Lisa Schiller, the accompanying video for “Astral Plane” is a stylishly shot, hazy and sultry dream that features the members of the trio dancing on a disco spaceship with a window viewing the planets and other gorgeous natural phenomenon.

Say She She will be embarking on the European leg of the Don’t You Dare Stop Tour, which sees the trio bringing their dance floor friendly sounds across the world. Check out the remaining tour dates below.
