SAYAH returns to the spotlight today with her new single ‘Fruit’. The unashamedly cheeky track is a slice of SAYAH speaking her mind. The song sees SAYAH delve into a straighter pop sound, with her emotive voice showcasing why she has been a highly sought after lead vocalist by Peking Duk, Set Mo and Cosmo’s Midnight.
On the new single, SAYAH says the inspiration came from “When you’ve got an insane connection with someone, but you know they’re not good for you, so you try everything to move on including seeing new people.. But no matter what, they’re always on your mind and it’s so freaking annoying!!! At the same time, you also kinda love it.. Ughhh the confusion!!”
The last 2 years has seen SAYAH focused on writing and responding to other artists’ requests to perform with them. In 2021, SAYAH will be the feature lead vocalist for Cosmo's Midnight shows, and has recently performed with Peking Duk, Set Mo in 2019-20 (including Splendour In The Grass) and has been an in-demand backing vocalist for various artists doing Like A Version at triple j including Safia, Thandi Phoenix, KLP, and Cosmo's Midnight.
‘Fruit’ was recorded at Taka Perry's home studio in Sydney, and mixed by Simon Cohen at Studios 301. “Keppie Coutts (co-writer of Fruit) and I wrote this song, she seeded the idea and came to me with the concept, and it was crazy because I was literally going through that exact scenario at the time. It was like she had read my mind and we wrote the rest of the song within half an hour.” SAYAH
SAYAH writes confessional pop tracks that make your mum blush. She is a trained jazz vocalist and has the ability to play the piano backwards due to hyper-mobile joints. SAYAH’s heart-expanding vocals have captured the attention of her peers. It makes you understand why SAYAH sits so comfortably in second gear.
