Sarah Krimson - With You

February 26, 2021

What touched us the most about Sarah Krimson was her delicate writing and her voice, soft as velvet. The young Londoner has it all: she has a whole future ahead of her, she is pretty, and she has incredible vocal abilities.

"With You" is about mental health, about a woman whose husband can't even pull her out of her dark period. The song evokes those times when you need help so much that in the end, even the closest people can feel disheartened.

On a soft, very piano-pop, and very captivating melody, Sarah delivers a poignant message, like a cry for help. We fell in love with the strong emotional power of the song, and we're sure you'll love it too. Such sensitivity, so young, is quite rare.

Well done, Miss Krimson.

Sarah's point of view

This song tells about how detrimental mental health can be and how easily it can be overlooked. It doesn't come as a surprise that one of the inspirations behind the lyrics is Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Wolf. The main character is an old lady who never overcame her "sad days" and remained stuck in her past," her old photographs". During her life she fell in love, got married, she had the career of her dreams, but still, something seemed to be missing.

Despite the many attempts of her husband to try and cheer her up, to make her feel ok, she still "carries a burden made up of air" - as she never faced her depression and this has now taken its toll on her. The story ends with the inability of the husband to really understand how she was feeling (which here represents the sentiment of denial) thinking the wife's depression is just some mere sadness that will go away.

Here's the analogy of the husband painting his very own portrait of her by stealing colors from his wife's cheeks and painting them on his canvas. (The Oval Portrait - Edgar Allan Poe) The message is: we need to have the courage to seek help when we really need it, we're humans and there is nothing to be ashamed of.
