Long Beach’s SATICA, who started out as a songwriter for K-pop powerhouse label SM, has quickly become one of our favorite rising artists in the female pop scene these past months. Not only has this daughter of Cambodian refugees lent her honeyed, breathy voice to Manila Killa’s Youth, but she’s also collaborated with genre bending post-EDM visionary Sakima. Now, SATICA has released her very own four track EP named Drippin, on which she dazzles us with her own forward thinking brand of R&B, future pop, and electronica. Aside from previously featured gems like Honey Whiskey and Dysfunctional with SAKIMA, Drippin also includes this gracefully teasing, sweetly wistful, and spry kittenish gem You Are Here, produced by Moving Castle label mate AObeats. SATICA coos over the song’s glistening web of nostalgia about the youthful rush of falling in love and the desperation this true longing oft creates. “In real life, the feeling is simple, you miss them and you love being around them,” she says of the latest sonic earworm. “But sometimes it hurts.” Stream SATICA’s debut EP Drippin, here.
