TUNE Sarah P. - Athena
Athena is a beat-driven, disco-inspired song about Sarah’s hometown - her “old/new home”, as she calls it. “Athena is a song I wrote about Athens while I was still living in Berlin and reluctant to resettle in my hometown. Many things have changed since then, but not my complicated relationship with the city I love to call my old/new home. Music-wise, I continue exploring the disco elements and the more organic sound of my Maenads EP, adding a “sturdy” rhythm section and floating synths & vocals that well-represent the paradoxes of my city - the edginess and fragility of Athens and its people.”
Athena is taken from Sarah P.’s upcoming album Plotting Revolutions - a contemporary record that’s addressing difficult matters without losing its humor and positivity. Plotting Revolutions is Sarah P.’s most mature work to date, both musically and lyrically. Sarah is standing opposite to the society with a mirror, trying to wake up all those who may be sleeping - themes she’s been continuously exploring through her work (Who Am I, Maenads EP).
