After numerous collaborative projects, including the Italian synthwave band Itaca, Holly Herndon and Kat Frankie, Berlin born and raised artist Albertine Sarges brings together a new band for her debut LP „The Sticky Fingers“ and signs to UK indie label Moshi Moshi Records. Her debut album, out in January 2021, approaches her take on feminist theory, musings on bisexuality, gender stereotypes and mental health.

These topics fall under the ever-shifting veneer of Albertine’s chameleonic pop motifs: from Viv Albertine-inspired post-punk and kaleidoscopic dream-pop to quiet-loud guitar squall and Tune-Yards reminiscent vocal acrobatics. While Albertine Sarges maintains a sense of comedy in her approach, her music is also a platform to explore the self and contribute to broader societal discourse.

"Makes me think of what Le Tigre might have sounded like had they moved to Berlin after their first record" - Steve Lamacq
