Sarah Kinsley is a musician as adept at writing as she is at singing, as she is at performing, and as she is at producing. An otherworldly talent, you can join the dots between her earliest singles (2019’s Wine-Stained Lips and Open Your Eyes), her first body of work (2020’s The Fall EP), and her most recent micro-opus (2021’s The King EP). Confident stepping-stones that flicker like disco floor lights that find Sarah skipping through a range of different colours, textures and tones. From her home studio in Connecticut to her dorm in New York City; hers is ethereal leftfield bedroom pop with heart and soul.
This year’s The King EP is one of those moreish records that you can’t and won’t switch off. As a body of work, it encapsulates the different textures, inspirations, colours and flavours of Sarah’s output to date. Melody-rich and poetic, these are songs for Saturday nights and songs for Sunday mornings. Beats-driven, guitar-kissed, synth-painted. Dig beneath the surface and you’ll hear words of resonance, honest and true. A story teller, a romantic, a realist and a dreamer.
