“It’s straight-up, full pelt pop. But with a twist.” – Bittersweet Symphonies
Roll out the red carpet..Brisbane's Sahara Beck is set to reign supreme with her glorious new EP - Queen Of Hearts. Lovingly crafted by ARIA Award-nominated producer Tony Buchen, it’s fearless, flamboyant and brimming with seductive art pop, with Sahara’s sensuous voice shining front and centre.
Two years in the making, it stars her previous singles ‘Here We Go Again’, ‘I Haven’t Done a Thing Today’ and ‘Don’t Overthink It’. Hot on their heels comes two new stunners, ‘Queen Of Hearts’ and ‘21st Century’. All suave synth and heady hooks, the title track sees Sahara spinning heartbreak into hope as she wrestles with love lost and finding herself. Over sombre piano and swelling strings, stunning slow burner ‘21st Century’ scans the bigger picture and laments humanity’s apathy and inaction in the face of a climate emergency.
Every song comes as a compelling confessional, set to a glorious pop pulse. It’s raw and too honest, but self-reflection has never sounded so sweet or entrancing. “Power through vulnerability” is a theme that courses through Queen Of Hearts, although Sahara didn’t realise it until the songs sat side by side. Confiding in her craft, she’s found strength in her flaws and wears them proudly.
