Emerging singer Sarah Barrios is heading into the weekend with the release of her debut Letters I Never Sent EP, a project which proves she's absolutely one to watch right now.
While it's only four songs, it's a perfect introduction to the artist, who grew up in Torrington, Connecticut, and was part of a musical family. She only began releasing music earlier this year, with "Mourn the Living" being one of the standout tracks, an emotional offering which has a slight Radiohead "Creep" undercurrent to it.
“I’ve always felt like a person who has a lot of feelings, a lot of the time and that kind of emotional whiplash can be pretty overwhelming," says Barrios. "I got to the point where I was just like, why am I like this? Why does everything feel so intense all the time?"
She continues: "Sometimes, no matter how well a conversation goes or a relationship ends, we find ourselves thinking about all the things we left unsaid. I am a storyteller at heart, and I had so many moments and words, pain and guilt left hanging in the balance, I felt like I really needed to share this story and how it re-shaped my view of the world and how I interact with it.”
