Sahara Beck

‘Here We Go Again’ is an intoxicating blast of art pop that grabs you by the ear and doesn’t let go. Lovingly produced, mixed and recorded by ARIA Award-nominated studio whiz Tony Buchen (Mansionair, Courtney Barnett, Montaigne), Sahara’s voice is powerful yet playful, soaring over a lush arrangement of stomping piano, punchy drums and choral samples.

It’s an inspiring evolution for the independent Brisbane artist who wrote her first tune at 12 and an exciting new page in a CV already overflowing with achievements. We’re talking an album, two EPs, coveted festival appearances at Bluesfest and The Falls Music and Arts Festival, support slots with Ball Park Music and Paul Kelly, and a few Queensland Music Awards to boot.

Lyrically, ‘Here We Go Again’ is Sahara’s rousing declaration of independence, as she waves goodbye to a one-way relationship and finding strength and joy in solitude. “What a beautiful life, I’m not a slave to love no more, better than I was before,” she sings defiantly in the opening line.
