Said The Sky brings the ‘Sentiment’ on stunning sophomore album
Nearly four years after his breakthrough debut album Wide-Eyed, Said The Sky is back with his sophomore LP Sentiment. “Sentiment,” by definition, refers to “exaggerated feelings of nostalgia,” and the album features plenty of that. Said The Sky proves that his love for punk-rock was “never just a phase” and perfectly fuses together those nostalgic sounds with his signature melodic-bass. We got previews of what to expect in the form of singles “We Know Who We Are” with Olivver The Kid, “Treading Water,” “Go On Then, Love” with The Maine, and “Walk Me Home” with ILLENIUM and Chelsea Cutler. Although each song is decidedly different, they all cohesively piece together, unified by their pop-punk roots.
Said The Sky said his approach to Sentiment was drastically different than that to Wide-Eyed. To make such a change is bold and equally refreshing. In a post to his social media, he said he took a Reddit user’s comment about his first LP to heart. The comment read, “[Wide-Eyed] is okay, it didn’t feel like he pushed and boundaries. Feels like another straight forward EDM album.” To that end, Said The Sky challenged himself to dig deeper and take those risks on Sentiment. There’s not many artists who would challenge themselves in such a way on the heels of an album that was so well-received. But what happened next was the inspiration to create something totally unique and true to himself, and the result was Sentiment.
Sentiment will be accompanied by a headlining tour of the same name and features stops at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Auditorium, Los Angeles’ Grand Park, Denver’s Mission Ballroom, Washington DC’s Echostage, and New York’s Webster Hall, to name some of the highlights. Said The Sky will be joined by Kaivon, Elohim, and Trivecta on select dates, as well as Midnight Kids and Olivver the Kid on each tour date.
