Sarrah Barrios collaborates with Syd Hartha for new track, All My Sins

12/04/2020 11:00:02 PM

American singer-songwriter Sarah Barrios has recently teamed up with award-winning Filipina artist syd hartha on creating a nostalgic-sounding electro-pop song All My Sins. This track is now out on all digital platforms worldwide thru Sony Music.

With a dreamy pop approach thrown in for good measure, “All My Sins” is an instant bop that builds into a swoon-worthy chorus. Its understated shimmer blends well with both Sarah and syd’s compelling vocals, made more appealing with a lush and effortless arrangement.

Originally conceptualized during the quarantine period, Sarah Barrios said this song was written as a response to being haunted by a mistake committed in the past. 

“For me, this song is about thinking through all of the mistakes you've made and asking the question of, ‘Am I a bad person? Or am I just too hard on myself?’ I'm definitely an over thinker and a perfectionist, so sometimes I find myself in this place,” said the songstress.

It helped that during the said time frame, Barrios was actively seeking potential collaborations on new material, and hence, tapping the known young singer-songwriter from the Philippines as the other half to do the song, after seeing her works from the popular video streaming site. 

“I really wanted to do a collaboration with another woman, as all of my previous collabs have been with men and just happened to stumble upon syd hartha one night,” quipped Sarah. “Her voice was so calming and yet also, so powerful and after binge watching all of her videos on YouTube, I just knew she would be the perfect person to help bring this song to life.”
Syd Hartha, on the other hand, managed to do well in her first collaborative project with an artist from overseas despite the differences in time zones, uncertainties of the pandemic and feeling apprehensive as an initial reaction to do so.

“Working with Sarah has been amazing,” described syd. “She was very welcoming and chill. It’s an honor to work with an artist like her.”

All in all, “All My Sins” offers stellar production choices that wouldn’t feel out of place in today’s current crop of hits. The song marches on with a luminous pop edge that is consistently enjoyable from start to finish, giving both artists an opportunity to take risks and try something that’s never been done before.
