New Sydney-based producer / vocalist, Sparrows has just unveiled her completely self-produced and recorded single ‘Get To Know You’ – an intricately layered cut where dynamics duck and weave throughout an eclectic and mesmerising soundscape.
Taking cues from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Grimes and Bjork, ‘Get To Know You’ sees Sparrows combine themes of soul, jazz, pop and electronica; whilst melding elements of acoustic and electronic production to deliver on an exciting, refreshing and cohesive sound.
Sparrows describes the inspiration and meaning behind the song –
“I had laid down a beat, which included recordings of a stapler, lighters and a ping-pong ball. I sat on it for a few weeks not yet knowing it’s home. However after a fun and flirty weekend at Return to Rio, the song pretty much wrote itself. I found myself in a magical setting where the sun was setting on partygoers in wacky costumes. There was a fox, a swarm of smurfs urging a panda to skull a shot of Listerine and a pirate with a tutu. We were all together in our own special world of weirdness. I got to think who are all these amazing people? The beauty of this entire setting was that we had the freedom to express our identities and be accepted in all of our states of existence and that’s what has inspired this song.”
Debut single ‘On Your Own’ received strong local support from the likes of triple j, FBi radio, AMRAP via #3 position on the metro charts and local tastemaker blogs; all praising her efforts and providing outstanding reviews.
