YouTube singing sensation Sarah Close has dived headfirst into original music, and she’s doing incredibly well.
“Call Me Out” is the 21 year old London-based singer’s first proper single, after covering songs on her YouTube channel since 2009. Sarah’s soulful covers of popular hits enabled her to build up a rather large following, and fans have been perched for some original music; it shows, with her debut EP Caught Up peaking at #1 on the iTunes chart based on pre-orders alone, and “Call Me Out” has racked up over 220k streams since it was shared last Friday.
Sarah’s first offering from the Caught Up EP, “Call Me Out”, is a smooth exploration of the sweet pitfalls of falling for somebody. Speaking to Clash, Sarah explained that she “wanted to write a really fun song about the process of flirting with someone and that uncertainty of not knowing what will happen [because] there’s no certainty in anything and that’s a really fun and terrifying time.” I agree with terrifying, but fun? If you say so, girl. Producer Lost Boy helped bring Sarah’s lyrics and message to life, by lacing “Call Me Out”‘s dangerously catchy melodies with super sweet, sweeping synths.
