“I wanted to make a point early on in this album that there is a lot that women feel and experience outside of what exists in their romantic relationships. I was deep in therapy throughout this albums creation trying to learn how to set boundaries without feeling guilty, be confident without feeling arrogant and untangle what it means to take up space as a queer woman in this world.”
Beautiful introspection, comes with all of the freedoms it entails. Also, comes with the eye opening truths that add to the heft of living and surviving. What matters most? What is the most important thing that exists? Personal, intimate, experiential, public – all of the things that mesh into a compilation of existing on this crust of earth. A relevance grand as the Universe. A relevance as private as the longing kiss of the one you love.
With the sultry inquisition of vocals and piano, ‘what do i want?’ is that most personal of journey – a moment in time – Sarah Walk impinged upon herself. A run-through in an exercise for betterment, a balancing act of acknowledgement and empathy, was the call of the day. Hardship profound, she works to help guide her will and passions towards the moving horizon.
Sarah Walk’s upcoming album, drops Aug 28th.
The record was produced by Leo Abrahams (Regina Spektor, Belle and Sebastian, Paul Simon, Pulp, David Byrne, Brian Eno), and tackles Sarah’s experience as a queer woman, learning how to set boundaries without apology and being confident without feeling guilty for it.
