Sarah Carton is an award-winning singer, songwriter, music producer, spoken-word poet and actor based in London. Recently a Resident Artist at The Roundhouse in Camden; her indie-alternative, synth pop is inspired by artists such as Tirzah, The Streets, Kate Tempest, Noname and Jorja Smith. Her 2019 debut alternative-R&B release ‘No Slave’ with electronic producer Ancona has reached over 230k streams on Spotify alone and previous live performances have been critically praised as ‘a fever of hypnotic song’ (The Sunday Times, 2018).
Already showcased alongside an interview with BBC Music Introducing, Beaches on the Thames is Sarah’s debut DIY solo single and was written, recorded & produced by Sarah (with co-production from Ancona) during the beginning of the Coronavirus lockdown in London. The indie-alternative, spoken word & bedroom-beats track was inspired by news articles around the clearing of the water In the Venice canals. Blending the personal with political; the track juxtaposes slowing down to appreciate our relationships & the environment. “Toxins in the lungs, clearing the stream” – lyrics reference how It’s taken a global virus to potentially “trigger the largest ever annual fall in CO2 emissions”.
