Do You?

I don’t want my friend to be fearful of walking home.

I don’t want my fiancé to be terrified of being alone with her boss.

I don’t want my colleague to feel silenced or less than.

I don’t want my neighbour to be afraid and dictated by dusk. 

I don’t want my partner to be wolf whistled when walking to the shop for some milk.

I don’t want my Grandmother ignored or disregarded because of her sex.

I don’t want my mother to be the butt of a joke between blokes.

I don’t want my sister to be leered at and made to feel uncomfortable.

I don’t want my daughter to change her wardrobe to prevent being attacked.

Do you?…

Falling High- Sarah May

 

…rising down into the deep”

Sarah May has already proven herself to be an established singer, songwriter and performer through her euphony of releases, Take Me Away, Fly, and Oops to name but a few tracks. Her latest release is just as compelling as she transitions her talents into an ambient electro chill out track. In previous interviews with Produced By a Girl Podcast she has expressed her love of house, dance, techno and electro as being favoured and influential genres.

The title itself is an oxymoron and fits perfectly with the lyrics. The juxtaposition of “Falling High” with “…into the deep…”  is emphasised through the song with a beat that builds as the track progresses surrounding and holding the listener throughout. The incremental progression of the track adds layers for the audience through the ambient almost meditative feel.

“I’m falling high into the deep” although contradictory enables the listener to embrace the euphoric graduation of the track throughout to its crescendo. Sarah consistently delivers polished music and this is no exception, it may deviate in style from her previous tracks but the creativity and effort put into her music is self evident, well constructed and a joy to listen to.

The track starts softly but builds progressing into an exemplary piece that wouldn’t be out of place on the club circuits of Berlin, London or Ibiza.

Falling High is Sarah’s first release of the year, and I am excited to see her creative talents continue to flourish throughout 2020, as with most creative mediums the hunger for more is greatly outstripped by the ability to create, produce and release. When I hear of Sarah May’s next track release I shall keep you all updated, until then I await patiently.
