West London’s very own singer-songwriter Rukhsana Merrise has unveiled her anticipated new single “Sober“.
“Sober” is another example of Rukhsana’s beautiful songwriting ability, as she uses alcohol as both a metaphorical and lyrical motif for losing control in love. To the sounds of the electric guitar, the strings so simple and pure, you can feel the yearning in each chord and every word she sings.
“‘cause when I’m sober i always try to hide it when I’m over i always realise that when I’m sober, i just can’t seem to reach you when I’m down and out”
“Sober” is taken from Rukhsana’s upcoming debut album Child O’ Today which will be released in two parts: Child, which is set for release this December, followed by Today in the spring of next year.
Speaking about Child and Today, Rukhsana says “Someone once told me that the reason why they congratulate you for releasing your first album is not for the fact that you have written it but because you got through it. In the beginning I was almost certain that I had it. Three years & 5 different track lists later I had created Child O’ Today.”
