20-year-old songwriter/artist Saga Back from Gothenburg debuted in mid-November last year with the single ‘There You Go…Again’, a song that has already have garnered more than 800,000 streams on Spotify. Despite her young age, Saga has been writing music for years and now she’s ready to reveal the follow-up – the superbly atmospheric ‘Cry’.
“The idea for this song came from watching a video about volcanoes where someone said that eruptions are horrifying but at the same time really beautiful. “It’s absolute destruction and creation at the same time”. That expression stuck with me. I think it’s a beautiful description of what happens to you when you go through something. That you fall apart and break completely but at the same time you change and it’s almost as if you recreate yourself”, Saga explains.
‘Cry’ is the kind of melancholic song that’s certain to soothe your soul, all led by Saga’s poignant and unique voice. She’s definitely an up-and-coming artist to look out for, so we’re really looking forward to hearing more from her in the future. In the meantime, keep yourself warm with ‘Cry’ below…
