Video: Sudie – “Heartattack”
The 23-Year-Old Dallas Singer/Songwriter/Producer Bares All In the Breathtaking Visual for Her Latest Single, Premiered By Jezebel
Critical Praise for Sudie:
“If the work under her belt is any indicator, a staggering talent like Sudie’s could very well be mentioned one day in the same breath as some of North Texas’ most notable women in music.” – Dallas Observer News
“‘Heart Attack’ is the first taste of the 22-year-old’s sound that combines pop sensibilities with classical training and a dash of experimental DIYism.” – Indie Shuffle“
“Sudie is as every bit as talented as has been reported. She has a crowd-pleasing ability to carry a note to improbably soaring heights.” – D Magazine
“Her style fuses the ache of Jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday with the same eccentricity reminiscent of European artists Björk and Karin Dreijer Andersson.” – Saint Heron
“Sudie has been on my radar for some time now, and from the looks of things she’s garnering compliments from others as well with each drop.” – Artistic Manifesto
23-year-old Dallas singer/songwriter/producer Sudie lets more than just her guard down in her video for “Heartattack. “As she disrobes, the song submerges itself in its own echos, near-a cappella but for a twinkle of piano that would be extraneous if it weren’t so ginger,” stated Jezebel in their premiere post. “The loss of innocence in the video is mostly about the loss of the innocence of the mind,” Sudie explains. “I didn’t want this to only be about in terms of sexuality, but more as a human being and what comes with growing up out of childhood into adulthood. For me, it was more about how the carefree and insouciant ideology and mental state of a child completely changes as you grow up and take on responsibilities.”
“Heartattack” is a song Sudie wrote after a panic attack, learning soon after that her grandfather had coincidentally passed from a heart attack the night before. The breathtaking song and video follows Sudie’s previous single, “Bruise,” which debuted with Indie Shuffle last month. “Sudie certainly channels her inner Björk on this one while still adding her own flavor to the self-produced single,” said Okayplayer of the track.
Sudie is looking to forge new lanes in music with her versatile style, utilizing her wide background in music that ranges from opera and voice training and her teenage experiences in Dubai. Spotlighted in a Dallas Observer cover story last year, she is preparing to release her self-titled debut EP on April 7th via Black Milk‘s Computer Ugly label. “This EP is an intense look into my mind and what goes on in my brain dealing with certain specific situations in my life,” says Sudie. “It is extremely personal and intimate—it’s my way of communication.”

Merging classical training with a unique DIY recording process, Sudie is an artist who’s truly forging her own territory. The 22-year-old singer, songwriter and musician, describes her sound as “something jazzy meets kind of crazy… if Bjork had arranged something for Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday to sing over.” It’s a sound she’s crafted all by herself, utilizing a pair of keyboards, a cheap microphone and a MacBook inside the confines of her tiny bathroom in Dallas, Texas, that’s taken her to Dubai and back. The result of that unusual process is a distinctive but accessible musical style, which fuses confessional, personal lyrics with influences from across the musical spectrum. Sudie will release her debut self-titled EP in April 2015 via Black Milk’s Computer Ugly record label.
