Premiere: Sara Jackson-Holman – “Nuclear War”


Releasing today alongside the Candy EP, “Nuclear War” is a moving track from Sara Jackson-Holman. She describes the effort as “a love song set against unrest and uncertainty– the increased urgency of human connection amidst it all.” Twinkling keys during the “I still hope,” bridge leads seamlessly into the entrancing chorus — “lately they’ve been talking about nuclear war / let’s get married before it comes,” — that reminds fondly of Lana Del Rey. An ensuing bridge — “you’re my heaven,” — flutters with melodic delight. “Nuclear War” is a gripping track that we’re happy to premiere.

“Nuclear War” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2020’ Spotify playlist.
