Sarah Krimson is back with her brand-new single ‘Urban Melancholia’ infused with intense and hopeful tones that will capture the listeners attention from the very first note.
The melancholy production on ‘Urban Melancholia’ features drums, guitar, and synths, accompanied by her beautiful vocals that bring the song to life. The simple yet gripping production paired with emotive vocals create an atmosphere of sorrow that is immediately engaging with the alternative-indie-pop genre flavours.
Inspired by ‘Nightcall’ by Kavinsky, Sarah Krimson wanted a good lead single from her upcoming extended-play and already had the title ‘Urban Melancholia’ in mind. She wanted a song that gives off melancholic vibes but also powerful and perfect to listen to at night. She sat on her bed and grabbed her guitar, and the melody for the chorus just popped up. The verses followed naturally, too. It took her around five minutes to create the first draft and the song was fully completed in about 15-20 minutes.
Sarah Krimson comments on the song, “Home is not where you are from, it is where you belong.”
