The rising artist and producer who was influenced by early folk, indie, and protest music growing up now turns to her own expression of emotion and protest. Mixed with the collaborative inspiration of dance, pop, and soul her new offering is an uplifting taste of what’s to come from such a diverse upcoming artist.
‘My Body’ showcases Sapling’s delicate vocals as she explores what she and so many others have experienced simply living in their bodies and the everyday struggle that entails.
When talking about the single Sapling explains: “It’s about how it feels to be a woman walking past men down the street. It’s about the direct actions men have taken towards me as a result of my body. It’s about rejecting other people’s possession over my body and empowering myself. It’s about the never-ending commentary on what someone else’s body should look like despite the fact it belongs to them.”
With such an important message that resonates throughout her music, it’s the perfect time to get onboard with Sapling.
