Sarah Proctor has released her essential LGBTQ+ ballad, Tired

In her latest single, ‘Tired’, Sarah Proctor treated her ever-growing fanbase to a stripped-back world-weary piano ballad that evades heteronormative stereotypes and hyper-normalised queer archetypes to paint a depiction of two women in love.

The semi-orchestral ballad carries all of the tenderness of a single by Bill Ryder-Jones, Tom Odell, Daughter and Bon Ivor. As her gentle, profound vocal timbre resonates above the sombrely minimalist keys, the vulnerability almost starts to feel like gravity.

As a queer woman who often feels ostracised by many facets of LGBTQ+ culture, it is beyond refreshing to find a relatable voice, a sincere artist looking to introduce reality onto the airwaves.

Since making her debut in 2020, the UK artist has garnered over 1 million streams on Spotify alone. Fans from all over the globe are drawn to the UK-born, LA-based artist’s intoxicatingly honest take on romanticism away from hyper-sexual toxic narratives.

The official video for Tired premiered on August 20th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Sarah Rae has released her hyper dream-pop track, Crimson Rose

‘Crimson Rose’ is the latest single from breaking artist Sarah Rae who merges dream-pop with hyper-pop to resounding effect. The Atlanta-based singer-songwriter set out to create an epic dream-pop track that weaves through dissonance; discernibly, she succeeded.

The bitter-sweet emotional tone of the single is amplified by the volatile nature of the soundscape that starts with soft staccato synths before catapulting into a raw balladic outpour of emotion.

Lyrically, the track centres around letting go of things that no longer serve you; if you’re going to break free to any pop track, it is going to be this one.

Crimson Rose was released on August 5th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud, Spotify or Sarah Rae’s official website.

Sarah O’Moore serves soul food in her sophomore single, I Need U.

Alt-RnB soulstress Sarah O’Moore has followed on from her debut single, Here to Stay, with the sophomore single, I Need U, which energetically emanates good vibes despite running through varying senseless tragedies present in socio-political landscapes.

The Irish singer-songwriter’s funk-bridled old-school style incorporates elements of jazz and reggae to create a culturally rich smorgasbord of sound led by 70s-style synth lines. The sonic textures alone are enough to advocate cultural harmony. Yet, through her matter of fact lyrics, minority groups have a true ally, and the affronts of the narrow-minded that are depressingly prolific are quashed under her graceful soul.

With a voice as authentic as Macy Gray’s it will be no time at all before Sarah O’Moore is ascending the RnB charts.

I Need U is available to stream on Spotify.

Atlanta indie artist Sarah Rae explores the multifaceted nature of love with her new single, ‘Poison Ivy’.

Sarah Rae

With her latest alt-indie single, ‘Poison Ivy’, Sarah Rae explores the contrasting layers of love, melodically shifting between light and dark transitions in the Shoegaze single that will undoubtedly be a hit with fans of Hooverphonic, Portishead and Slowdive.

It is singles like Poison Ivy that remind you that there’s no such thing as a realistic ‘happy’ love song. They’re about as true to life as superficially stretched smiles in social media posts that are aimed to deceive people into believing that your life is a 24/7 soirée of aesthetic euphoria.

Poison Ivy starts with chilling angular notes that feed into the stylish trip hop-style soundscape that allows the vox to find perfect synergy with the reverb-swathed instrumentals as they bleed into them, still allowing the poignancy of the lyrics to haunt the progressively enthralling track that gets better with every listen.

Poison Ivy is due for official release on June 9th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

Survival Mode: East London’s Sarah Isabella is honestly exquisite on ‘Pressure’ (feat. Tolu Shorts)

As she curiously wraps her head around the past, present and what the future holds in a sometimes bleak world around us, Sarah Isabella is quite simply incredible with a single that is so relatable to so many on ‘Pressure‘.

Sarah Isabella is an exceptionally gifted indie RnB/jazz and hip-hop fused singer-songwriter from East London in England. She brings onboard the top class production of Tolu Shorts for this one – which will have you lighting up the healing candles in your room – to importantly meditate those bad vibes out of your body for good.

For those sleepless nights, repetitive days, consuming self doubts and compressing unrealistic self expectations – ‘Pressure’ is my honest ode to all the moments spent feeling trapped and lost over these last couple years.” – Sarah Isabella

Her stunning vocals transforms your fragile emotions and has you closing your tired eyes to filter out all the negative thoughts and undesirable energy fields, that need to be closed off like a dusty tap.

The production and accompanying instrumentals are so classy and cool, as the song fills you up with sadness but shows you where to go so you may be free again, and unshackle your deepest thoughts from the wholesome treasures that awaits you.

Pressure(feat. Tolu Shorts) from the sumptuously talented East London, UK singer Sarah Isabella, is a true story about how things that happen in the world and with your life can really cause you to overthink and start to doubt yourself. You feel like you are being weighed down by a ton of bricks and can’t escape – when all you need is a change of scenery and perspective – to feel alive inside your precious soul again.

Flicking the inner switch from survival to winning mode is possible, if you open yourself up to the possibilities which are awaiting your eyes to see.

Shake Off The Race: Sarah Rae reminds us that its okay to be a ‘Blooming Mess’

After falling hopelessly in love with her euphoric single to help us gain that elusive inner acceptance in March called ‘Dancing In The Sun, Sarah Rae returns with a freshly salted new song which will have you smiling all over with ‘Blooming Mess‘.

Sarah Rae is a classically trained Atlanta, Georgia-based indie post-punk/dream-pop singer-songwriter, comedian, actress and pianist. She makes that embracing music which has your ears firmly listening intently, as her authentic style has you in awe of her total originality.

”The music behind Sarah Rae is driven by a plethora of sounds combining dream pop, nerve pop, and pop punk to create soulful music, with clarity that brings you both dissonance, and harmony. She seeks to balance both the ability to breathe life in to the listener with major progression, but also make them think with downward dissonance to create a clash the truly strikes your nerve.” – Sarah Rae

Featuring supremely energetic guitars, that happily swarms your ears with a very deep baseline — and fascinatingly muffled vocals that has you turning the volume up so high your tender ears shake — this is a quick-fire song to remember for so many reasons.

The Faces Of Sarah – old-school goth rock in ‘Divided Night’

It seems March is ‘old-school Goth Power-Rock’ month, with The Faces Of Sarah providing the epic sound-track; there’s big swell keyboards, huge guitar power chords, and the sort of driving drums and pushing bass that fills the soundscape. Sisters Of Mercy and The Mission mixed with big rock production. There’s an epic guitar solo, swathed in delay and reverb, that drips Fields of the Nephilim and a touch of early Cult. You can practically see the black and white promo video and the water droplets bouncing off the snare drum.

It’s sparse, echoey, a big epic goth/rock sound to a powerful single – the first from The Faces Of Sarah’s new ‘Whispers From The Room’ EP – carried by founder/singer Nick Schultz’s potent vocal and that sparse, echoey guitar. It’s time to dig out the black duster coat and eyeliner.
