Review: "Drowning" - Sarah Anne Fernandez
Love for yourself can sometimes be a hard thing to achieve. There are so many factors that can play into that love that we desire to feel for ourselves. The beginning of that is understanding and coming to a conclusion that there is an issue, and to take that challenge head on. This is the topic of singer Sarah Anne Fernadez's new track "Drowning." In the track, Fernandez takes her emotions head on.
The track has a dreamy instrumental, featuring drums, synths, piano, and some strings. The synths sound almost aquatic, playing off of the theme of the track. The cymbal hits, remind the listener of the feeling of breaking through the surface of the water. However, at the forefront of the track, Fernandez's magical voice flows over the surface of the instrumental. Her voice is beautiful, and ridiculously powerful when that chorus hits. The lyrics delve into topics of self doubt and self love. Fernandez croons over the chorus "When will it ever be enough // I'm drowning // Under my tough exterior // Feel so inferior to all that I see." She discusses how she feels on the inside, and how things around her have caused her to feel less. She then questions whether it's herself holding her emotions back, "When will I finally be, enough for me?" That's a question Fernandez leaves to answer for herself.
Sarah Anne Fernandez is a multi-talented actor and singer. "Drowning" is Fernandez's first original single of 2022. She previously released a pop-punk cover of Olivia Rodrigo's "deja vu." Fernandez has also toured the country in Wicked: The Musical. With a range that "defies gravity," Fernandez has proven herself to be a vocal powerhouse that has a bright future ahead of her.
