Rising singer/songwriter Saige studied in BIMM and cut her teeth gigging Dublin’s music circuit while developing her unique sound.
Hot Press Hot for 2021 alt-pop act Saige launched onto the Irish music scene in 2020 and has already established herself as a force to be reckoned with within the industry.
With just a few months and four singles under her belt - 'Soothe Me', 'Ultraviolence', 'Late Nights' and 'Mama' - the Wexford talent is ready to make her mark.
Unveiling her fifth single from her forthcoming EP, 'What Should I Write?' juxtaposes rich, textural vocals with dreamy soundscapes.
The creative's compelling brand of alt-pop is influenced by the likes of Hozier, London Grammar, Lykke Li and the xx. Her inspirations can be heard on the latest number, which sees the artist more vulnerable than ever.
Saige’s catalogue is reminiscent of an artistic maturity far beyond her years; capturing a sound that feels both modern and classic. Her new single brings romantic connections to the fore, with the singer-songwriting confessing in diary-style how her hopes of their long-lasting relationship were altered.
“The track was actually written a few years ago, almost as a ‘thank you and goodbye’ to an ex as he packed up his stuff to leave in the next room. We’d both changed as people and the line ‘What should I write so you’ll stay’ was the first line I wrote, referring to the person I’d once known. The song looks back contently so I wouldn’t say it’s a break up song, but more so a fond look back on a closing chapter.”
Having performed on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions Y&E Series last August, Saige is set to launch a brand new EP. Hopefully live gigs will follow, watch this space...
