About Album

After leaving Norway for Liverpool’s inner-city suburbs, Sara Wolff’s homespun lyrical alt-folk is a reassuringly real scrapbook of cautionary tales about days in bed, fraying relationships and botched social interactions whilst navigating the journey into adulthood.
Nurturing her songs on a drip of wry humour and knitwear, Sara’s 3-minute universes are written and arranged within the cosy chaos of her collected things; guitars, woolly blankets, half-drunk cups of tea, and shelves gently buckling under books and strange plants – a happy setting for apparently less happy songs, but it’s within such contrasts her inspiration seeps in.
Sara’s recent single ‘You Like Talking About Yourself’ (quickly capturing the attention of BBC 6music’s Tom Robinson) is whimsically self-aware, playful, brutally honest, and akin to the charm of her favoured performers Benjamin Clementine or Blossom Dearie.
Always putting the story first, Sara’s sound is a majestic and dreamily melancholic collage with her delicate vocals at the fore.

Album Reviews

 Emerging from the endless fog and cosy comforts of her winter hibernation, Sara Wolff’s debut EP offers a deeply melodic warmth and beautifully crafted lyrical exploration of humanity’s highs and hollows. For a debut this is some audacious and assured songwriting, perfect in its simplicity and craft. 

Now Then Magazine

 The ethereal synths fade into her tender vocal timber with seamless ease creating a cohesive soundscape for the observational lyrics. Coming from Liverpool with tinges of Norwegian cool, Sara Wolff composes elaborate songs between alt-folk and bedroom synth pop. 

Nothing But Hope And Passion

 Musically, Sara’s sound is a somewhat angular take on alt-folk, bringing to the mind the likes of Cate Le Bon or Cocorosie with her call-and-response way with melodies, both vocal and instrumental, and her gently disorienting take on a more traditionally straight talking genre. While her music journey is only just beginning, Sara Wolff already feels like an intriguing prospect, one I can’t wait to see develop and grow, the results are already looking hugely exciting.
