Having just supported electronic band Glass Animals at a sold-out show, Manchester-hailing producer and songwriter Sable is becoming a promising name in the Berlin independent music scene.
The artist triumphs once again with “Madwoman In The Attic”, a melancholic melange of synth harmonies and compelling lyrics digging into the psyche of a demonised female lover, too swamped by their inner torments to fully give herself to the ones she loves. The piece becomes a yearning vehicle, as Sable chants all the things she could do or say for the sake of being reciprocated and, most importantly, understood.
“Unhappy women have historically been painted as the villain or the victim,” Sable says about the track. “I wanted to write a song that gets inside the head of the so-called ‘madwoman’, the woman who knows that she is lashing out but can’t stop herself, the woman who is pushing people away to protect herself.”
The artist will be heading back to the UK for her upcoming “The Graduation Tour”, offering audiences a taste, in the flesh, of the wistful art-pop world set to emerge in her upcoming EP, “English Literature”.
