The Australian multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Sarah Mary Chadwick has shared a new single.  “Flow Over Me,” taken from her forthcoming LP Sugar Still Melts In The Rain premiered via Blackbook Magazine who note, “there are moments when she strikingly recalls Nico.”  Sarah told them the track  “is some deep psychoanalytic shit and you would hope so after what I’ve spent on therapy.”

Sugar Still Melts In The Rain will be released May 11 via Sinderlyn, Chadwick’s first for the label.

Sugar Still Melts In The Rain is the follow up to Sarah’s 2016’s Rice Is Nice LP.   It was recorded and mixed by friend, musician and filmmaker Geoffrey O’Connor in Vanity Lair and Phaedra Studios in Melbourne.  Before embarking on a solo career, Sarah spent a decade fronting the grunge band Batrider. Eventually becoming tired of the collaborative requirements intrinsic to band life, she shifted her focus to songwriting independently, drawing inspiration from “weird old New Zealand musicians” like Peter Jefferies, Chris Knox, and Australia’s Pip Proud and the way they tinker away and work for decades for “little to no commercial success.” This inspiration is obvious in Sarah’s performance as she simultaneously savors and mocks the pedestal that her creativity affords her, acknowledging that “it’s a position of power being on a microphone” and how “it’s a desperate demand to be seen. It’s funny and really sad.”
