Next Up Music PR

After only a year of captivating audiences with her music and six months of delivering electrifying performances in her hometown of Boston, folk-pop sensation SARIKA has emerged as a rising star. Known for her genre-hopping prowess and infectious humour on stage, she seamlessly blends mature lyricism with a youthful perspective that resonates strongly with Generation Z. Now back with her latest release ‘Nightrunner’ SARIKA offers up another captivating addition to her catalogue.

The country-folk offering navigates the complexities of relationships that linger despite their tumultuous nature. With a playful and self-aware approach, the song acknowledges the risks of getting back with someone who’s not good for you while succumbing to the allure of familiarity. Lines like "There's little to earn, but let's try our luck one more time" encapsulate the bittersweet dance of love that SARIKA masterfully orchestrates. Backed by an array of country-folk-inspired guitar and piano lines, SARIKA crafts a delicate soundscape that frames her emotive vocal performance perfectly, with the use of harmonies throughout the track adding a further dynamic to the heartfelt record.

A self-proclaimed "nerdy-girl-turned-pop star," SARIKA's journey is as diverse as her influences. A first-generation Indian-American and lifelong songwriter, inspired by the sounds of Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and Phoebe Bridgers, SARIKA's music defies easy categorisation. Her previously released folk-infused EP "Right Place, Wrong Time" and synth-pop single "California King" showcase her versatility, offering an emotional rollercoaster that is both profoundly moving and irresistibly enjoyable.

With the release of her latest single ‘Nightrunner’ SARIKA continues to shape her unique sound and connect with an ever-growing audience. Having just headlined at the Rockwood Music Hall in Boston SARIKA plans for further performances throughout the year, along with the promise of new music on the horizon, 2024 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for the emerging artist.
