London-based singer-songwriter Sarah Krimson returns with brand-new single 'Urban Melancholia'



Back with her latest offering 'Urban Melancholia, UK artist Sarah Krimson is steadily gaining a growing reputation and following as a singer-songwriter with her metaphorical lyrics and clever musical composition.


Having been seeking to portray her life story through music, and one that resonates with a large audience; she moved to London in 2015 to pursue her musical career. Working alongside a multitude of producers and spreading her wings with performances across the city, the budding songstress now offers a production infused with intense and hopeful tones that captures listeners from the opening note.


Featuring drums, guitar, and synths, accompanied by her beautiful vocals that bring the song to life, 'Urban Melancholia' presents as a simple yet gripping production. Paired with emotive vocals, Krimson creates an atmosphere of sorrow that is immediately engaging with fans of 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 just 20 minutes.



Speaking of her latest delivery, Sarah Krimson said:


“Home is not where you are from, it is where you belong.”
