First Word Records is very pleased to bring you more new music for 2021 from Sarah Williams White!

Emanating from the "hilly fields of Lewisham" in South London, Sarah Williams White is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Her sound is a unique blend of psych-soul, folktronica and experimental pop.

Sarah released her acclaimed debut album 'Of The New World' on First Word in 2015, which was written, produced and performed by Sarah from her home studio, with the assistance of drummer, engineer & husband, Timmy Rickard. Her projects have seen support from the likes of Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2), Clash & The Guardian, and she's toured the UK with Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Golden Rules (Lex). There have been additional collaborations with label-mate Quiet Dawn (on the recent compilation/EP 'A Family Affair') and with her brother, Paul White - a revered producer in his own right, with credits including Danny Brown and Sudan Archives.

Sarah says of 'Monsters' "I had made this haunting play of space between pianet, bass and Timmy's drums which started me thinking about the scary stories and tales we tell. I had been reading about what Britain's landscapes looked like thousands of years ago and the giant animals our ancestors hunted to extinction, like the hippo bones they found when they were building Trafalgar Square. I think the feral side of us still seeks out the thrill of monsters via stories, films, or even projecting monstrous images onto others so we have something to fear and chase away."

With a voice reminiscent of Peggy Lee, tapestried harmony akin to Hiatus Kaiyote, beats fit for Little Dragon, and experimental production evocative of Kate Bush, Sarah Williams White's signature genre-defying sound invites us into a world uniquely hers.

'Monsters' is released digitally worldwide on November 10th 2021.
