Sarah Mary Chadwick is back with her second official full-length release since her debut solo LP Eating for Two (Bedroom Suck Records, 2012). While preserving her distinctive traits of bare-skinned honesty and visceral delivery, 9 Classic Tracks sees Sarah Mary Chadwick venture into decidedly lusher territory – her unmistakably raw vocals present this time through a vaseline filter and with an air of reflection indicative of both artistic growth and intimate evolution.
In a new collaboration for Chadwick, 9 Classic Tracks was recorded and produced by Geoffrey O’Connor (The Crayon Fields) and mastered by David Walker. What soon becomes clear is this is an album of great introspection. But rather than alienating the listener with inward-facing questions, Chadwick’s astute observations on relationships and the utter messiness of love are at once deeply idiosyncratic and universally relatable. The cover art for 9 Classic Tracks is an incredibly beautilful and confronting piece by the artist herself.
Sarah Mary Chadwick launches 9 Classic Tracks at The Gas on Thursday 4 June with guests to be announced!
