Grab your tissues because Brighton based singer-songwriter Sadie Nix just released her heartbreaking new single “Oblivious.” The track is the singer’s third single from her highly anticipated debut album. Originally from the US, Nix is making waves in the UK. Her previous single, “Same Song,” was featured on BBC’s Introducing. The song was solely written by Nix and produced by Martin Hollis at Metropolis Studios in London.
“Oblivious” is a rock pop song that is full of heart. Nix sings a classic story of an unrequited love that is destined to fail. She adds all her own details that breathes new life into the subject. The production is dark and soft, so it allows Nix’s voice to shine. Especially in the beginning when it is just Nix’s voice and a piano. The build into the chorus lets the feeling escalate and shows off her passion. She has such a powerful and real voice; it feels like the listener is listening in on Nix confessing her innermost thoughts.
Her storytelling shines throughout the whole song, she is able to be personal and relatable – which is a tricky balance in songwriting. “Try to rewind back to the time when you kiss me in your back room and we briefly cross that line,” Nix sings. This is a perfect example of her specificity and her realness. Lyrically and musically, this song is on par with rising artists like Lizzy McAlpine or Gracie Abrams.
So go stream Sadie Nix’s new track “Oblivious” and keep an eye out for her upcoming debut album!
