An Interview With Sarah Sunday
The latest single from Sarah Sunday is a completely refreshing pop song with alt-edginess sprinkled on top.
"INK" is an outstanding song that shows Sunday's ferociously bubbly side without being afraid to really rock.
Think Avril Lavigne but more colorful. Much more colorful. The video for "INK" is an excellent example of what we mean.
It's hard not to fall in love with Sunday's shining personality after watching it.
"INK" has a radio friendly feel to it and almost sounds familiar even. A strong and boisterous release from Sarah Sunday. So much so, that we wanted to have a talk with her about the single and video.
TSWS: So Sarah, "INK" has a killer pop-rock style and a ton of youthful energy. Where did this song come from? What's it about?
Sarah: Ink is a Anthem dealing with Teenage Angst!.. From a somewhat innocent era where the height of rebellion was threatening to “Ink My Skin” ah, Get a Tattoo lol!
TSWS: There are some great influences in this track, can you tell us what bands or artists really inspired you? Who changed you?
Sarah: I love 80’s bands, The standards and some not so standard, The Smith, The Go Go’s, Blondie, PIL, the entire 80’s Vibe.. A kind of Character/Creature type Vocalist…ah Remember Adam Ant..Boy George...
TSWS: How did all of this begin for you?
Sarah: I always loved music and the potential to perform, I love style, makeup and music but really never merged all three in together until I met my Producer Mbj, between the both of us we tried to develop a unique Combo of Pop Punk, Electro Pop, Dream Pop..We started just with an idea of Him writing a Song, kick it back to me, I listen, make some notes, go back and forth and hence, the next thing .. we are recording vocals in his Studio. That was the real beginning.
TSWS: Did "INK" come out how you expected? Do you have some help on the production side?
Sarah: Ink came out better than expected..and the response has been all too good,,,we recorded the vocals right before the Virus and the tracks was slated to be #3 in line. Since there was a quarantine, Mbj mixed and masted the final version at His location so we could release something really, just to keep busy, stay visible. I still need to record vocals on #1 and #2 slated for the next singles!
TSWS: I love that you've been releasing singles. In today's world that's the smart way to go. With each single you release it seems you gain more fans. With over 10k followers on Spotify alone! did you expect this much of a fanbase when you started?
Sarah: Truthfully I really did not expect anything, I knew my 1st single “Come and Find Me” was good, catchy…and really caught on….”Mental Zoo” My 2nd Single really took off and I had a Blast working on the video.After 3 Successful Singles, all # hitting #1 on Starfleetmusic’s Record Pool charts INK, My latest Single, solidified a real strong following as seen with the growth of my presence on Spotify and the general Scene.
TSWS: Is there any advice you'd give other aspiring artists out there?
Sarah: Yes, 1,Find the right Producer..Def. most important…2, Write Catchy Hook…and never Stop.!
TSWS: Do you think you'll end up putting together a full band for live performances? Is that something you plan on?
Sarah: If times were different I would have had a band already..IF there was a show tomorrow, or ideally on a Sunday,,! I could have a cool little set up ready to play live consisting of me on vocals, a Guitarist, and a drum/synth player, all set..!
TSWS: Before we go, what would you say to your fans right now?
Sarah: Appreciate all the listens, stay well and be safe, Visit my facebook and instagram page for my latest adventures..!!
