“Singer songwriter Sara Phillips is back with a stripped down single with all the feels.” I’d say this pitch sums it up pretty well. Continuing the tradition of releasing singles that make you desperate to know what’s coming next, Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah Phillips’ most recent track, “Six Feet Under,” is an intimate and stripped-back production that delves into the pain that we always put up with in our pursuit for love. Acoustic guitar arpreggios play like a gentle ballad while brooding piano chords seem to come straight from the depths of Phillips’ struggle. Synth strings drone softly in the background and make the listener feel like they’re floating as a reverberating electric guitar delivers sparse and tasteful melodic inserts. Phillips’ poignant lead vocals and lush harmonies are vulnerable and sung at a near-whisper as she bares her soul for those who will listen. I highly recommend that you do.
