If you’re already a fan of Sarah Walk you’ll know that those intimately melancholic lyrics through stripped vocals are enough to make even the most unwilling of hearts quiver; if you weren’t a fan, you’re about to be.

Debut album Little Black Book brings Walk’s heartbreak to life. The title track moves between her signature enchanting piano and vocal combination and an intensely tempered guitar and drums set-up; the instrumentals mirroring the intensity of the desperately brokenhearted lyrics.

Tracks like Bored To Death show Walk’s tougher sound, storming in with pulsing bass and stern vocals; yet the likes of Still Frames and Prettiest Song are peacefully idyllic, effortlessly oozing raw emotion. The album is hauntingly beautiful; Walk has a unique knack of making you want to play heartbreak on repeat.
