Sarah Walk will be dropping her "Another Me" album, produced by Leo Abrahams, on Aug 28. "Unravel," her 2nd single - like the record - explores her experience as a queer woman and the process of setting boundaries, as she learns to shut out her challengers once and for all.

Walk grew up in Minneapolis but has spent much of her time living between Los Angeles and London. She explains: "I wanted to make a point early on with this record that there is a lot that women feel and experience outside of what exists in their romantic relationships." Sarah Walk stares directly into the void of "the institutionalized entitlement of men" and connects with a sense of self-discovery as she sets the precedent that relationships are conditional upon the respect you receive. Her songs on this album "have been a journey in learning how to take up space and thrive in the long term."

"Unravel" is the reflective and razor-sharp depiction of a flawed power structure, and the necessary rediscovery of a personal power that was once lost. As this dynamic and cinematic pop track evolves from vulnerable to resolute, we experience the richness of true self-realization. With an epic finish to this emotional tribute, Sarah Walk speaks boldly to anyone struggling to find their voice, and invites us all to search for our deepest truth.

Nothing’s hurt me more than men that grew up with no consequences
Why is it my job to fix this mess?
You’re always ready to defend
You hear my concern as anger
And no-one wants an angry woman.

This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.

Sarah's sophomore record "Another Me" will be released August 28 on One Little Independent (FKA One Little Indian).
