New York newcomer Sarah Kinsley has dropped a brand new single, ‘Karma’.
Released via new indie label Everybody’s Music, the track is a lovely bit of modern disco alt-pop that echoes reference points both classic and sparkly fresh.
“Karma was written completely by mistake around July or August of this past year,” Sarah explains. “I had hit a wall with another song I was writing, I had such terrible writer’s block. All the lyrics I had churned out were repetitive, all pseudo-copycats of past work. I was recording a voice memo – as it usually goes since I love recording everything I sing or attempt to say – just mumbling on and on trying to expand the lyrics of this other song for a few minutes. And then there’s a moment in the recording where you can hear me actually realize these two phrases rhyme, karma and I want ya. I just completely moved to the next idea and started singing. Your superstition, my intuition says I want ya. Everything completely set fire after that. I turned on my amp and began settling into chords. I produced the chorus that same day.”
Performing all synths, beats, guitars and vocals, as well as a bit of production too, Sarah’s a multi-talented type. ‘Karma’ is the first taster of an EP, set to follow later this spring.
It comes alongside a video directed by friend and collaborator Lux, which you can check out below.
