Sakima Wants To Put Queer Sensuality On Your Pop-Loving Lips

Sakima Wants To Put Queer Sensuality On Your Pop-Loving Lips

It’s almost impossible to say something new in today’s hyper-confessional “this is me raw and unfiltered and not wearing makeup but totally photoshopped” pop landscape, but that hasn’t been a problem for UK singer and producer Sakima. On his recent EP Facsimile, the 26-year-old pop auteur did something unusual: used his bedroom-ready voice to talk frankly, openly, and explicitly about gay sex. In advance of his upcoming sophomore EP, we slid into Sakima’s DMs for a chat about his unapologetic lyrics, his reception from critics, and the queer future of pop.
