Sarah Schonert Channels A Level of Female Shero In Songs About Sounds

6 Dec

If the title does not give away the emotions I have towards Schonert’s music, the term Shero epitomizes me viewing her music as not only heroic, but inspirational for 2019. Take one listen to Sarah Schonert’s music and it takes you to another world. A world where you don’t know if its all imaginative or in another universe. The most noticeable thing listeners will pick up on when listening to her music is that it sounds like a mixture of new age post Sonic Youth music stylistically mixed with space rock, characterized by the textures and tone variety one hears in her instrumental style. Different voice tracks, variety of instrumentals of piano and reverbs, and a variety in her vocal delivery makes the album an interesting one to listen to from start to finish. Similar bands that have used such synth and sampling of vintage sounds include Math The Band, Of Montreal, and even mainstream influences such as Justice. Throughout the album, her music showcases almost a stream of conciousness mixed with her creative exploration of her voice and lyrics across tracks. In a digital age where over editing and heavy autotuning is used amongst musicians, its refreshing to listen to a musician who approaches their music making in a very raw and original way.
