Everything Saakred [...] does is chillingly original. They manage to surf the waves of indigenous sounds, the avant garde and the experimental in unexpected ways, with the intensity of a person who lives in their own magical world.
— Enrique Lopetegui, SA Current
These powerful witch crafts could be just the tip of a mountain that needs to erode into a dance floor where the conventional ways of interpreting sound may finally die. It’s evolution.
— Anehlo Escalante, Bitch Media Contributer
Saakred continues to remain unsubscribed to doing what is safe or expected with their art. A triumph reserved only for those willing to push through the status-quo to communicate something raw and authentic.
