What’s this? Swedish newcomer Dear Sara is finally out with her first collection of songs – her debut EP ‘I’m Not That Sad’.
What’s on it? Two previously released singles (‘Do Better’ and ‘Something You Should Know’), two brand-new tracks, plus a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ ‘Californication’.
What’s it like? Well as is always a welcome element to any collection of tracks – there ain’t a bad tune on there! It’s a sonically cohesive EP that doesn’t throw up any curveballs that might make a sit-down-and-listen experience anything less than perfectly palatable. This is an EP to take in and get lost within – multiple times. A dreamy soundscape that succeeds in telling you precisely who this new artist is. And we like her a lot.
What does Sara say? “Creating this EP has been a rather long journey where I, together with some skilled songwriters and producers, have put a lot of focus on creating a special sound image that feels very much like me. We have played around with great sounds and atmospheric melodies. I have had to dive deep into my writing where I have been both playful and serious. At the same time as that, I got to grow as a person and an artist. With this EP I want to invite the listener in to different chapters in my life, thoughts and dreams I had. I am so incredibly proud of the result and look forward to continuing my musical journey from here.”
