Buzzy Lee, the pop project of Sasha Spielberg, released her Nicolas Jaar-produced debut EP Facepaint earlier this year to acclaim from fans and critics alike, who fell for her deeply intimate songwriting, powerhouse vocals, and dreamy synth-pop sound. Buzzy Lee has since been taking Facepaint on the road, appearing at festivals like Philadelphia’s Made In America and sharing the stage with Dirty Projectors and Rostam. This month, Buzzy Lee will be touring Europe and the UK, including appearances at London Calling Festival in Amsterdam and Pitchfork Avant-Garde Paris, and in anticipation of that tour, she’s shared a previously unreleased demo from the Facepaint sessions, “Better.”


Buzzy Lee says of “Better,” “This a ‘demo’ straight from the heart. Though is it a demo? Is it a song? Isn’t every song technically a demo if you’re a perfectionist? The files of this song are nowhere to be found, so this song only exists in this state. I hope you cherish it. Love, Buzzy.”

Facepaint is available now on Future Classic.

Buzzy Lee is in Tempe, Arizona tonight, opening for Best Coast at the Sun Devil Stadium. She returns to Los Angeles to play the Echo with JPEGMAFIA on October 18 before her October European/UK tour. In December, she’ll play select California dates with Helena Deland. Tickets to all shows are available HERE.
