New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, vocalist, and visual artist Sarah Mary Chadwick released her eighth studio record Messages To God this September via Kill Rock Stars.
The album features “dramatic retellings of having your heart broken, existing, movement, and growth.” A bonus track, “If I Have It In Me At All”, is out now, with an accompanying live in-studio performance video. The track continues the themes explored throughout Messages To God and teases at more performance videos to come.
I write so many songs that there are always some casualties, some songs that I love that don’t end up making it onto a record for reasons other than my affection for them. This is one of those songs. It’s a love song written when I felt worried that I didn’t have enough to give. And I guess that still remains to be seen.
Messages To God is an album about “finding beauty in everyday occurrences.”
