That Saadi’s musical history reads like something out of a V.S. Naipaul novel is incidental. As the (entirely true) legend goes, Boshra al Saadi was born in Syria, sojourned in suburban Pennsylvania for a spin in Catholic school, ventured to NYC’s Greenwich Village in her late teens with folksinger dreams, and cut her teeth as co-frontwoman for indie rock band Looker, before setting out on her own. It’s an enchanting backstory no doubt, but it merely hints at the edges of the spirit of the songstress. Saadi’s relaxed, yet electro-happy brand of indie pop transcends era, simultaneously redolent of no wave, new romantic, afro disco, shoegaze, post punk, and that ever-present other. Her voice possesses that rare blend of churning passion and disembodied detachment. It’s no surprise she cites Brian Eno as an influence, as her radiant sounds hearken both the 1970s pop-savvy and the latter-day electronic experiments of that musical wizard.

Saadi’s first single for Dither Down Records is “Clotheslines,” an earthy track with retro-tones, languorous and hazy, featuring echoes of everything from Siouxsie Sioux to Lykke Li to MIA. The seven-inch boasts a remix by Lemonade with a late-80s alterno-dance pop vibe, while the longer collection includes four re-imaginations ranging from a snaky, playful dub from acclaimed reggae producer Victor Rice , Lazyflow’s energized club-ready Brazilian Batucada Techno to Douster’s Afro-house take, The Daniel Haaksman remix is pure dancefloor heat.
