Her Skin releases a new single ‘Heavy Hearted’ in the UK on the 13th May, via WWNBB. This is the second single taken from her forthcoming album ‘I Started A Garden’, that will be released later this year. Originally from Modena, Italy, Her Skin is 25-year-old singer songwriter, Sara Ammendolia.
Sara says, “Heavy Hearted’ “Is a song about trying to move on from someone and knowing you haven’t really moved on from them. It’s about being ghosted and still wishing them happy birthday, about saying you’d never call them again but still constantly checking your phone, about meeting them at a party with their new crush and pretending everything is ok.”
Sara started writing songs when she was fifteen years old and always had a huge passion for music. The first song she ever liked was Le Freak by Chic and she now takes inspiration for her own music from many bands / artists including, Sibylle Baier, Vashti Bunyan, Mac DeMarco, Beirut, Joni Mitchell, Jay Malinowski, The Kinks, The Head and the Heart.
She has done numerous tours around the world taking in Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, India and United States and is now ready to set the UK alight! After recently performing at SXSW Festival, she is now in the UK for The Great Escape Festival. Sara said “It means so much, it’s such a great festival. I’ve been wanting to go since 2018 and I am so happy I finally managed to, and as an artist! I still can’t believe it!”
She will also perform at Primavera Festival in Barcelona and at Mondo in New York.
