Since Sahara Beck released her first full album, Volume One, in 2011 at the tender age of 15, critics and fans have known that the Queensland-based singer/songwriter was a rising star. Turns out her star was destined to rise pretty quickly, and just last week, Beck took home the People’s Choice Award for Most Popular Female at the Queensland Music Awards. With the current release of her second EP, Bloom, she has further developed the syncopated, sunshine-y style that has been winning over audiences in Queensland and beyond.
A powerful track from Bloom, “Brother Sister,” showcases her acoustic, alt-folk style, with thumping, textural percussion and carefully layered backing vocals. The track centers around a heartfelt, almost haunting tale, proving that Beck has a sense of wisdom and insight far beyond her years, and a natural storytelling gift that she uses to craft earnest pictures of life, death, love and beyond.
