New Music: Sarah Johnsone

Hailing from the North-East is UK artist Sarah Johnsone. Having inherited her music taste from her dad, Sarah grew up listening to rock, blues, jazz, R&B and reggae.

‘Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl’ is an atmospheric piece of indie-rock that feels anthemic, raw and gutsy, yet still maintains a sense of emotion that is endearing to experience.

“I’ve found that my lyrics always tend towards the sombre side, so for this single I wanted to juxtapose it with energetic riffs and guitar solos. It’s the first recording I made with my band, which gave me way more scope and depth musically. The song is about falling for someone who you know is no good, but it isn’t a downcast tune at all.”
