North East-based alternative pop artist Sarah Johnsone releases a soulful new single this month. Her voice shines brightly on No Serenade, supported by a softly wandering and subtly thumping soundscape. No Serenade’s refreshingly jazzy and harmonious vibe makes it a perfect sunny Sunday afternoon soundtrack.

The track is an ode to the solace of love, and shows another side of Johnsone’s musical prowess. Its lyrics lay bare rough and poignant emotions, and show Sarah’s songwriting skills to superb effect, with a vintage sound gracefully supporting its message. No Serenade also marks the first time she speaks of love in a positive way, which is smartly backed up by the confident and soothing rhythms.
