Sahra is pure, raw, natural talent, with a raspy voice that seeps into your very soul. I could draw a parallel between her and the late great Janis Joplin, but I refuse to compare. Sahra’s individual merits are already plenty to discuss.
Soulmate is, without doubt, the stand-out track on this 4-track EP. It boldly showcases Sahra da Silva at her best – as an intimate, gutsy vocalist with undeniably passion and fire in her voice. The lyrics are strong and expressive, and the track’s clean production allows Sahra the space and time (6:02) to draw you in. The haunting electric guitar would sit well in a Taratino movie, and I’m excited to hear the guitarist set free in a future live performance.
This song easily lets me tick all the checkboxes I have for the term ‘classic.’
I strongly recommend listening to this EP through high-quality headphones or speakers it deserves, so ditch those iPhone headphones!
The other 3 songs, 'Don't you Dare,' 'Leaving you Behind' (another personal favorite with amazing vocals), and 'Only Mine' give us more of her powerful emotional drive, and, even better, no song is under 5 minutes.
