Reviews: Sarah Linhares – Messages from the Future
anadian Soul/Techno/Pop artist Sarah Linhares releases her unique sound on her latest EP Messages from the Future. She is a very talented musician with catchy, dance-worthy songs comprised of great beats and lyrics that are easy to connect to. There are not many other artists like Linhares on the charts, which gives her ample opportunity to succeed in the music world.
The first track, “Here”, starts out with a nice, Hip-Hop beat and showcases Linhares’s smooth velvety vocals. The music gets your head bobbing, and the pleasant sound of the vocals puts one at ease. It’s a calming song, using interesting elements such as a synthesizer at certain points in the composition to keep the listener’s attention. “Feelin’ You” is a slower jam, featuring Wayne Tennant and Anthony Pageot. It almost has a Caribbean, Reggae feel to it with the cadence of the vocals. The guest vocalists bring a nice touch to the song by adding a male perspective, and Linhares’s attempt at rapping is on point and diligently avoids monotony. The drums, keyboard, and guitar bring a jazzy element that complements all other parts of the song. Another up-tempo offering is “Dirty Business,” which has a heavy bass and techno instrumentation throughout, reminiscent of No Doubt’s “Hey Baby”. Again, Linhares’s vocals are good but unfortunately get a bit drowned out by the backing music. Despite this, her singing ability is apparent and the song is very catchy and easy to groove to. The lyrics resonant also, with Linhares singing and stating that she doesn’t want a man who is acting shady in her life anymore because she can do without him and his “dirty business.” Many listeners can relate to this subject matter, which gives this song more mass appeal.
Sarah Linhares is a musician with great vocal abilities and an ear for catchy dance beats. She has the talent to succeed alongside other Techno/Electro Pop artists such as Ellie Goulding. With her soulful voice and hot beats, there is no stopping Linhares from making her own mark on the music charts!
