Sharl – ‘City Lights’
Melbourne-based artist Sharl has released the stunning album ‘City Lights’. It is an electronic-pop release that you need to know about this Autumn.
‘I Fell in Love’ opens the release, and Sharl’s brilliant vocal performance instantly draws the listener in. We adore the catchy chorus, which is relatable and memorable.
‘Without Me’ hears Sharl’s vocals shine at the forefront of the mix with gentle backing instrumentation and a warm vibe. In addition, ‘My Own Advice’ is a standout song with exquisite melodies and outstanding vocals.
‘Real Love’ takes the album in a new direction with melodic bass, a stoic beat and intelligent chordal progressions. Finally, the title track closes the release, and it is a song that will have you reaching for the repeat button.
Sharl says about her music, “I started writing the songs for this album when I had so much time and mental space for introspection during the lockdowns in Melbourne. In a way, it was therapeutic, just doing what I enjoy most at home.”
She continues, “There’s a diverse range of stories and sounds on the album, which I feel is symbolic of myself as a person and artist in that I’m always evolving in my thoughts and style. Through writing it, I realised I had found my true voice as an artist and am inspired with an ongoing creative vision that I want to share with the world.”
