Close to a year after we first covered her, Hedara returns to share her brand new single titled “Sad Girl Syndrome” with us on Conversations. The new single is the first track from her upcoming fourth EP, which her team describe as “powerful, emotionally charged and expertly produced“.
A graduate of the BRIT School, Hedara, whose real name is Scarlet Billham, comes with recent support from BBC Introducing, Earmilk, Clash Magazine, Girls Are Awesome, and BBC 6 Music, among others. On the live music circuit, she went on her first UK tour alongside Tom Speight last year, and she will be supporting Hannah Grace on her mini tour this October.
For “Sad Girl Syndrome”, Hedara has collaborated with producer Ian Barter, who has previously worked with Amy Winehouse, Rhys Lewis, and Paloma Faith, to deliver a lush piece of synth-pop with an uplifting chord progression, with an emotive lyrical content.
Speaking about her new “Sad Girl Syndrome” single, Hedara says, “I usually write songs about other people, but Sad Girl Syndrome was written for me. A love letter, if you will, to myself, as a reminder that we all have flaws, we all make mistakes but as long as we learn, we grow, and that’s a reason to always love yourself”.
