Win a signed, coloured vinyl of Sarah Blasko's new single
Critically acclaimed Australian songstress Sarah Blasko is back with her new single ‘No Turning Back’ and to celebrate the release we have 3 signed and coloured 7” to give away. ‘No Turning Back’ is released through Dramatico on 27th September.
Typically the set closer in her captivating live shows, the insistent keys and percussion of ‘No turning Back’ are perfectly marshalled by producer Björn Yttling. With Sarah’s normally ethereal, hushed vocals replaced with an over brimming anger, the track is a muscular step forward for the lady feted by Lauren Laverne as ‘a musical gem’. Her influences range from the likes of Talking Heads and Nick Cave to Ennio Morricone and Henry Mancini. With a very strict religious upbringing, Sarah uses her lyrics as a sort of purging process, and wrote her latest album, the phenomenal ‘As Day Follows Night’, following a devastating break up. With the likes of the vulnerable ‘I Never Knew’ and ‘Is My Baby Yours?’, Sarah marks herself out as having a truly singular grasp on the vagaries of the human heart. Meanwhile, the tunefulness of the David-Byrne-quoting ‘Over And Over’, the jazz-club bound ‘Bird On A Wire’ and first single ‘We Won’t Run’ reveal that, far from being morose, Sarah has an innate way of finding a sweet, uplifting melody that will burrow itself into your head.
‘No Turning Back’ comes from her third album ‘As Day Follows Night’. The album has drawn acclaim from many different sources in the music scene. Already nominated for 5 ARIAS back home – winning for Best Female – and being crowned Triple J’s Album of The Year.
