Tucson, AZ-hailing pop artist Aspen Sawyer has been pulling the light out of her dark experiences since she made her debut in 2019 with her single, Self-Love. After experiencing serial abuse and homelessness as a teenager and young adult, Sawyer seeks to inspire her listeners by proving past trauma doesn’t need to hold you back or define you.
Her latest single, When the World is Ending, is an intoxicating feat of darkwave electropop that asks the very relatable question, will you still love me when the world is ending? With apocalyptic thought never far from our synapses these days, When the World is Ending is a powerful release that reflects the paradigm shift that love has taken during the pandemic.
When the World is Ending is now available to stream on Spotify.
