Sarah Williams White is the latest signing to South London label First Word Records. Hailing from the 'Hilly Fields of Lewisham' Sarah is part of a new wave of artists from her corner of London that includes Mo Kolours, Henry Wu as well as her brother Paul White. A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Sarah cites influences including Jamie Lidell, Erykah Badu and PJ Harvey as well as more contemporary acts such as Hiatus Kaiyote and Thundercat. Her sound mixes soulful, intricate vocals with subtle beats and layered harmonies.
This approach is writ large across 'Hum', the first single taken from her debut mini-LP 'Of The New World' due out later this year. Over a skittering beat Sarah showcases both her deft songwriting and breathtaking vocal abilities. Her deceptively intricate production is pulled together with a catchy hook and backed with layers of handclaps, percussion and vocal melodies.
Also included in the single package are two remixes - first up, Sarah's brother Paul (Golden Rules / One-Handed Music) creates a shimmering, eerie backdrop for Sarah's vocals, adding darker textures to stunning effect. It confirms Paul's status as one of the most interesting musical talents that the UK has produced over the last few years. First Word's own Quiet Dawn has also contributed a mix, taking the track into a more sensual territory, with live bass and subtle guitar creating a neo-soul vibe reminiscent of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu.
