UK country artist Sarah Louise has had a string of successful single releases as of late including ‘My Beating Heart’ which secured top spot in the UK iTunes Country Chart. Her latest release ‘My Grandparents and Me’ is a nostalgic track in which Sarah revisits some of her earliest childhood memories and pays tribute to her grandparents. It’s the little details within the storytelling lyrics like salad sandwiches which really make this song, as it perfectly paints the picture of Sarah’s childhood and despite the very personal account, people can relate easily with their own relationships with their grandparents. Sarah’s sweet vocals and melancholy acoustic guitar have a warm and comforting nature to them, whilst the sad undertone of not appreciating what we have until it’s gone is prevalent. It’s a well written country song with a simple yet universal theme. The track precedes an EP which will hopefully be available later this year and if this song is anything to go by, it is sure to be one of the strongest EPs we hear from a UK act this year! I’m looking forward to hearing more from Sarah-Louise.
