Last night, Saakred debuted "Pray," the first cut from the impending album Make Believe
due out on March 6. The warped pop project of SA's Melissa Ruizesparza Rodriguez, Saakred is in a bombastic mood on the new single, howling over a 16th note shuffle.
Repeating the title's phrase, it doesn't sound like Saakred wants us to join in prayer, as much as beg for mercy from the acerbic track. When the band kicks into the instrumental section, it's some of the most memorable shredding we've heard from one of SA's most bold experimental voices.
