A nomad traveled long and found the years in gathered songs.
Twisted all tears into a rhapsody in her soul and sang’… Mixmatched (Side A) is a unique musical adventure of 6 alternative songs about innocence lost, fatale revenge, toxic love, life’s worth, happiness’ truth and every lil puzzle that makes us the imperfectly perfect people we are today.
‘Now you’re free dear, you belong here.’
Side B of the album is a circle back to finding peace within yourself. 5 eclectic songs influenced by musical theater about feeling ostracized, fighting with one’s demons, medicating depression,
a swashbuckling father-daughter story and letting life take its place.
'ANOTHER HAPPY DAY'
In this warped version of a birthday song, Sally Ann sings about not having given up on life and to still just be in this imperfect world she’s found a place in, blowing out more candles each year.
In hindsight, sometimes our greatest fears are just our lonely shadows. Achingly honest, this song speaks out against suicide and through its ‘keep calm and carry on’ feel, celebrates a day where many adults dread remembering.
‘Okay she was cute but psycho, bit too much drama. But would you still love her if she were any less?’
Simpler is a ‘rather’ cherry pop song sung in an innocent voice with a dangerous edge, underlining a relationship involving a partner with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Sure, the girl’s got problems but at least she’s making peace with it. Now, didn’t you say you truly love her for who she is?
'Hello Dear Fats'
Hello Dear Fats is a quirky yet empowering song addressing body image and bulimia. Honest, daring and direct; the song unveils the ugly behind the search for that perfect body and twists it into a force to overcome self-hate. With its unconventional melody impliciting anxiety that comes with self-judgement, the song is delivered by assured vocals and a sassy attitude supported by deep bass that triumphs like a decree by a confident queen
Pretty Mess is a feel-good, self-love, anti-racism song for everyone who’s felt limited by the categories some people make you tick. And as you struggle to fit into one of their ‘boxes, you can start to feel lost. Personally, growing up as ‘that mixed girl’ in South-East Asia, I struggled to find my identity. I finally learned that instead of trying to fit myself into ‘one box’, I could love this Pretty ‘Mess’ and embrace the world as my foundation.
This song celebrates this mixed up world and all its beautiful people, the one where you and I live in today.
Fly is about finally taking that uncertain leap to let live and be free with whatever you have and are in that moment.
It’s about not waiting any longer for that something better to happen. It's the moment you realise you've nothing to lose in saying goodbye to holding back the old you. And you do this at your own pace.
No rules, no scoreboards; just one thing, with love.
"I don’t know what life will bring. All I have is this dream to cling"
