Building from a jangly charm into organ-laden outpouring, “Sarah” is a catching new track from Los Angeles-based artist Kaycie Satterfield. The first single from upcoming EP Sweet Tooth, “Sarah” begins with a down-to-earth lyrical prowess amidst understated guitar lines: “I showed up to the party, a quarter after midnight, a little overdressed and tipsy.” The hazy backing organ emerges as Satterfield admits “I was talking to myself,” — making for an especially melodic hook. Bouncy key adornments add enjoyably in the concluding verses especially. “Sarah” is a quality songwriting showing from Satterfield, merging modern singer/songwriter creativity with melodic nostalgia.
“It’s a love song, but not without conflict,” Satterfield says. “It’s about commitment and all of the challenges that come with it.” The track was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Sarah” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2021’ Spotify playlist.
