Today we’re thrilled to share with you the premiere of Sarah Blacker’s ukulele-based “It Shows.”
The track is included on Blacker’s upcoming release, In Waves, out May 19.
“This song is about when you know you're in love but neither person is admitting to it yet for fear that the magic will be lost, or that the other person may not love you back,” she shares.
“I wrote it about one person who broke my heart, and now sing it to anyone who's heart is open. It's an old-school crooner-style song with a post-apocalyptic twist.”
Blacker’s vocal work shines on this track, and the production work — full of extra sounds and sparse percussion – adds to the all-consuming, apocalyptic feel.
