Creating Blissful Ballads: Sarah Rose Talks ‘Making of Us’

You should definitely listen to Sarah Rose’s brand new song called Making of Us… I mean it’s truly magical. Here is one of the UK’s best singer-songwriters, gearing up for the second single in 2024, and this one is absolutely soaring with both emotion and songwriting skills.

You know, ‘Making of Us’ was written like, last fall I think, but idea of this song is very close to me and I think it does not have an expiry date. Sarah was dreaming about her first dancing song for the future wedding and she just poured out this story while singing it out.

It begins almost skeletal in structure, it’s just Sarah singing over a few piano notes to start with. However, as events progress, the overall show does the same, growing into such lush layers and mere electrical touches. There are clearly echoes of an artist such as Sasha Alex Sloan in Sarah’s music which is warm, folk and country with electronic pop elements.

One thing that I found particularly fascinating about Sarah is the fact that she can take inspiration from basically anything; whether it is movies or books she reads or simply things she comes across in her daily life. A love for music has also been identified as another lifelong activity which entails playing piano from home when she was young, under her mom’s tuition. Today, she uses her first and second names for her performance pseudonym.

But as much as I have seen her acquire success and grammy awards, Sarah has remained very down to earth and relentless continuously improving the craft of her music and songwriting. I would be very interested in exploring it further and finding out more about her and the inspiration behind “Making of Us” album and her further plans. This just whet my appetite for this band!

country inspired dreamy pop with electronic elements

Describe your creative process.

It varies – I’ll usually have a concept and title and then a seed of a melodic idea, the song will grow from there.
