An bold take on indie-pop from 20-year old South African talent Valley Sixteen. After relocating to Germany, ‘Sad Eyes’ came to life on the floor of her best friend’s apartment in Munich.
This track is an exemplary example of melancholy pop music, and confirms Valley Sixteen as one to watch.
“Moving myself away from some extremely toxic situations, I learnt that even though they still stung, I didn’t have to feel so negative about them anymore. ‘Sad Eyes’ is sad, yes, but for me, it’s my ‘reclaim that independence’ song that I needed when I went through my breakup.”
