When crowds relate, music connects.
SACHI cling to this truth like “the golden rule.” The New Zealand duo—Nick Chrisp and Will Thomas— transform their every day, real life experiences into a vibrant, dazzling electronic-pop party. As a result, uncompromising creativity, unrestricted energy and an infectious spirit define the pair and translate right back to their audience – as evidenced by one sold out show after another and over 30 million streams in 2020.
“I feel like the golden rule of music is people like songs they can relate to,” affirms Will. “If you’re writing about yourself and what you actually do, listeners put the subject matter into the perspective of their own lives. We commit to it.”
“You can hear our heart in everything we do,” agrees Nick.
This heart beats louder year after year. It started when Diplo visited New Zealand on tour in 2015. SACHI stalked his Snapchat, found his location, and slipped a USB drive through the window of the SUV carrying the star. Serendipitously, he gave it a spin and played “No More” and “Hold On” on Diplo & Friends, offering an invaluable co-sign. In the aftermath, SACHI exploded as a homegrown phenomenon, achieving two chart-topping gold singles—“No More” and “Shelter.” Along the way, they also ignited stages alongside everyone from A$AP Ferg to Alison Wonderland and received coveted co-signs from Diplo, Zane Lowe, Complex, Hillydilly, MTV, and more. Not to mention, fellow NZ superstar Lorde signed off their remix of her multi-platinum smash “Green Light” with Montell2099. Signed to Casablanca/Republic Records, they made a splash stateside with last years Nights With Ruby EP, including hit singles “Worst Behaviour” [feat. SamDeRosa], and ‘Sparking My Fire’ [Featuring ROE], the EP amassing over 25 million streams.
As one of the only countries in the world to welcome back live shows following the pandemic induced music industry pause, New Zealand electronic duo SACHI reestablish their rightful place on the dancefloor with their new single, ‘You (à la)’.
Written and produced over the lockdown period, ‘You (à la)’ sees SACHI approach collaboration as a newfound individual process. Formed via email sessions from their respective bedrooms, ‘You (à la)’ was written with Swedish singer Hilda, Shy Martin, and Anton Rundberg; redefining the act of collaboration in true 2020 style.
