Sycco — 22-year-old First Nations singer, songwriter, and producer Sasha McLeod, whose syrup-textured sonic world that blurs the line between psychedelic rock, hyperpop, and high-octane electronic dance music makes her “one of Australia’s most promising pop acts” (Vogue) — shares the new single Swarm alongside a fish-eyed music video, following a premiere on triple j Drive yesterday. Out now via Future Classic.

A soaring track that operates between SZA’s R&B smashes and Justice’s bass-forward dance productions, Sycco’s Swarm is about being in LA alone after a breakup, anxiously leaving any feelings unprocessed. But in being co-produced by Chrome Sparks, Swarm stays sanguine and glimmering in sound and style.

Of the track, Sycco says: “‘Swarm’ was the first song I made when I went to LA for the first time on my own. I had recently broken up with my girlfriend of three years a few months before it and I hadn’t really processed any of it. Lyrically, ‘Swarm’ is about my anxiety and how I let it get in the way of things that are important to me. Sonically, it has some fun production elements and is quite upbeat, and I’m attracted to the contrast because it highlights how silly those anxious feelings can be.”

Today, Sycco shares a psychedelic and fish-eyed music video for Swarm, watch a clip of it below:

Her latest single, the “catchy, tongue-in-cheek” (Rolling Stone) I’d Love To Tell You, was co-produced alongside Styalz Fuego (Troye SivanMUNA), with Consequence describing it as “a trippy daydream [that] recalls a bit of the addictive energy that propelled Sivan’s ‘Rush’ to the forefront of the pop conversation in 2023.”

Sycco and her band — who recently brought genuine 21st century rockstar energy to a sold-out debut headlining show in LA and a run of sets at SXSW — are heading back to the US soon for shows in NYC and LA. For tickets and more information head to
