In anticipation of her third full-length release, In Waves, you can now check out Boston singer/songwriter Sarah Blacker’s newest track, “It Shows.” Though the album promises to be a rocking and ambitious record (not unlike Blacker’s other releases), “It Shows” is more of a lullaby. “I accept all of my emotions as visitors and allow myself to observe them while feeling them each to their very depths,” Blacker said. “You can’t skip over certain emotions, I feel that it’s very important to ‘feel it all.'” This philosophy certainly manifests itself in “It Shows.”
Showcasing Blacker’s sugary vocals, featuring both a smooth soprano and equally appetizing alto, “It Shows” is a gorgeous ukulele serenade set to relaxing and romantic tropical instrumentation. Blacker sweetly sings, “We don’t let anyone know/We don’t let anyone know/What we haven’t said yet/But it shows,” alluding to the innocence of falling in love, a topic Blacker’s fans are eager to relate to. “It Shows” is a lush vacation into Sarah Blacker’s voice, heart and mind.
