Saige is an exciting, up and coming musician in the Irish music scene. Whilst she’s only got a handful of releases under her belt, she’s already found her groove and signature sound. Her latest offering ‘Sparks’ offers an even more mature and defined sound.
‘Sparks’ creates an instant impression on the listener. Drums cut through the mix whilst hard-hitting but warm synths dance on top on this infectious percussion. Saige’s vocals are emotionally penned and raw – this tone partners well with infectiously-penned melodies. The track features engaging lyrics that paint a vivid picture of the problems that come with young love.
Speaking further about this she says: “I’d been listening to Olivia Rodrigo’s album Sour at the time, which covers her feelings on teenage heartbreak. It kind of dragged me back to how that felt and how high emotions were – for me it really felt like my world was ending.
Inspired, I wrote Sparks about my own experience. I was young, naïve and in over my head. He had essentially said I had rose-tinted glasses on about love, and I said to him I’d rather love love than become cynical. Sparks depicts those final conversations and moments.”
‘Sparks’ is the title track from her debut EP being released in early 2023. If this single is anything to go by, the EP is something that should definitely be on your radar.
