about

‘Of The New World’ is the debut album from South London singer & producer Sarah Williams White. Sarah is part of a new wave of artists from her corner of London that includes Mo Kolours, Henry Wu as well as her brother Paul White. A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Sarah cites influences including Jamie Lidell, Erykah Badu and PJ Harvey as well as more contemporary acts such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Jamie Woon and Thundercat. Her sound mixes soulful, intricate vocals with subtle beats and layered harmonies.

Over 12 tracks (7 songs and 5 interludes / soundscapes), this mini-album showcases Sarah’s range of abilities. Tracks like ‘Hum’ and ‘Winter Sun’ highlight her delicate yet powerfully soulful voice, whilst ‘Rainmaker’ and ‘New World’ show her ear for unusual beats and deft musicianship. Elsewhere the hypnotic interludes (‘Arrival’, ‘Adrift) would not be out of place in the more abstract work of her fellow South Londoners over at the 22a label.

Over it’s all too brief 27 minutes this is an album that draws the listener into it’s unique sound – drawing an ethereal thread through a work of wide and ambitious influences. With fans including Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), John Kennedy (Radio X), Dan Le Sac, Nick Luscombe (Late Junction) and more, this is just the beginning for one of the rarer talents that you’ll hear in 2015.
