Sara is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Hemel Hempstead, a historic town in Hertfordshire, England. Not too long ago, she released a chill indie-pop tune, entitled, “Lovable Maybe”.
Sara – “Lovable Maybe” single
“Ever since I saw you girl, I wanted you to know that it felt easy. And I’d begun to focus on a life spent on my own, but this is easy. Lie right beside me, help me feel something less blue ‘cause I’m into you. Can you handle me when I’m crying at half-past three about something stupid that I touched? Am I worthy of your love?” – lyrics
‘Lovable Maybe’ tells a heartfelt tale of a young woman who wrestles with mental health issues while trying to maintain a healthy relationship with her significant other. Oftentimes, she wonders if her partner will be there, in the long run, to help her feel something less blue. Later, she admits she used to think (“When I get older, I will be married to a guy”). But that thought, somehow, never materialized.
‘Lovable Maybe’ contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, the likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation scented with a warm indie-pop aroma. Furthermore, “Lovable Maybe” follows hot on the heels of Sara’s debut single, entitled, “Little Nerves”.
“Lovable Maybe” single
“‘Lovable Maybe’ is largely about grappling with mental health while trying to maintain a healthy relationship. Contamination OCD makes it incredibly difficult to share a space with anyone, let alone maintain long-term relationships. The song is the story of how I found someone that loves me despite my flaws, all the while examining how I don’t feel worthy of that love. The song is pretty much one big warning label where I’m double checking if this person really wants to be with me.” – Sara
Sara’s music displays lyrical vulnerability, touching on themes such as mental health, loneliness, and sexuality. Fans of contemporary talents like The Japanese House, SOAK, and Shura should find much to admire in her thoughtful songwriting.
Sara spent much of her childhood in Mozambique, where she was lucky to survive the 2007 Maputo arms depot explosion. A Russian arms depot self-destructed in the intense heat of the day, with missiles landing just meters away from where Sara and her family took shelter. This traumatic event eventually led to Sara looking for ways to express herself in order to cope and have fed into her intense creativity. Sara’s musical influences include Frank Ocean, Sufjan Stevens, and Bon Iver.
