Sara Kays is like the one friend you have who actually listens and watches as much as she speaks. For the most part, her life is “quiet.” Her free time consists of hanging out with her brother and mother, playing soccer with her friends, and frequenting thrift shops. She loves warm beanies and also doesn’t understand “why people don’t eat croutons like chips.” When she does get “loud,” everybody else listens just as intently. She’s unassumingly built a rapt audience of 2 million followers across social media platforms, gathered hundreds of millions of streams, and received acclaim from Billboard, People, BuzzFeed, American Songwriter, Flaunt, FLOOD and more. Observations, thoughts, and truths straight from the Notes app on her phone inform diary-style stories often upheld by not much more than gentle acoustic guitar, soft ukulele, and a keyboard murmur. In 2021, the Nashville-based solo singer and songwriter makes a heart-to-heart connection on her Struck By Lightning EP [Atlantic Records] and more music on the horizon.Throughout 2021, Sara assembled the EP with Martinez, teasing its arrival with “Backseat Rider,” “Traffic Lights,” “Future Kids,” and “Picture Of You.” The single and title track “Struck By Lightning” [feat. Cavetown] captures the nuances of her confessionally quirky lyrics, glassy melodies, and chantable observations. It hinges around an ironically beautiful image of “Something this town will forever talk about, the two kids that were laying down and struck by lightning in front of your house.” The Struck By Lightning EP is released for the first time on vinyl, as a blue vinyl 7 track EP for RSD 2022.
