Hailing from South London, Sarah Williams White‘s music mixes just the right amount of R&B, future and alternative Soul. Blend that with her delightful tones and you arrive at her new single “Winter Sun”.
Whites’ voice is warm and bright throughout and floats effortlessly over the twisted groove, really blown away by how skillfully the intricate rhythm doesn’t detract from the song’s catchy hook.
“I wrote this track to gratify all these images from films I had in my mind like ‘Empire of The Sun’, ‘Fist of The North Star’… imagery of a post apocalyptic/war-torn world, but nature with it’s strength and beauty just standing it’s ground! The Sun, or that something at the end of the tunnel that gives hope through darker times..
All my new music seems to have this underlying theme of time and repair, and the awesomeness of earth. Its a bit of a theme throughout my upcoming record ‘Of The New World’.
‘Winter Sun’ started out as a li’l instrumental idea with my hohner pianet over a beat of Timmy’s (Timmy Rickard is the drummer and engineer I work with) – I’d been listening to a lot of Roy Ayers! Then it kinda filled itself out over time into a more spacey harmonic piece with the poem and vocals, new b-boy drum grooves from Timmy and my juno 106 playing the glaring Sun.”
Along with the record White has announced that her self-produced debut LP “Of The New World” will arrive later this autumn via First Word Records.
This tune is seriously soulful and has definitely caught my ear. Listen below.
