Sydney singer-songwriter Sarah Wolfe has shared her new single, Killing Time. Alongside the release comes the announcement of the singers signing with Cooking Vinyl Australia and a self-directed visual.
Continuing her fusion of punk-based pop sonics, the Xavier Dunn (Jack River, CXLOE) produced track explores the singers own social anxiety, whilst also serving as a reminder that there's more to life than the acceptance of others. “It’s very much about social anxiety: that everyone secretly hates you, no one wants to spend time with you, and all the pressure that swirls around your mind when you’re with a group of people. I really wanted to encapsulate the fear that you’re not living up to your full potential because you have so much anxiety holding you back. I know I’m not alone in these fears, so I want this track to remind the listener that their feelings are valid and they aren’t alone in the world.” the singer shares of the track.
Speaking of her signing, Co-Managing Director Stu Harvey shared “Late last year I was working in my office, with triple j Unearthed playing, and it was one of those classic moments where a song stops you in your tracks. Sarah's single ‘I'll Never Be Happy Again’ hooked me; I loved the smart, fun lyrics, the production and the attitude. I went into a rabbit hole listening and reading everything I could, before reaching out to her. We talked for ages – she told me about her music and vision, then she sent some demos, and I knew when I woke up the next day still humming the hook, that we had to sign Sarah Wolfe to Cooking Vinyl Australia.”
After years of venturing into the world of music journalism, Wolfe decided to make music her priority and has since released a string of songs including Devil U Know, U Think This Is A Game?, 100 Times and a collaborative cover with Dunn of I Think We’re Alone Now, made famous in 1987 by Tiffany. Earlier this year, the singer supported Lime Cordiale during their residency at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory to celebrate the release of their sophomore album.
