Sara King has been posting covers on YouTube for over 4 years now, covering music by artists like Lana Del Rey, Brockhmapton, and Gus Dapperton. But at last, at 18 years old, she has released original music, making quite an impressive single, “Dreamz,” on her very first go. And this is just one of the tunes from her upcoming EP, Heat, that is set to come out later this July.

The influence of some of her favorite musicians is definitely apparent on the track. The song is kind of like a mix of Clairo, who she’s covered on her channel before, and Katzu Oso with a touch of Kali Uchis and a bit of glitter thrown on top. Heavy synth and soft ethereal vocals give “Dreamz” a quite magical, (unsurprisingly) “dreamy,” and disco-ey pop sound and her sweet personality shines through, creating a joyful mood. As Sara hoped for, this is surely a bop, one that you’ll want to groove to and have on repeat all summer (I know I will). Keep your eyes (or ears) peeled for more of her summery bops coming your way.
