Sake – ‘Lifted By The Sea’


Sake, the musical project from North Walian singer Chloe Leavers, has proven thus far to be a rather rich and rewarding experience.

Having released two stunning songs, ‘Stay With Me’ & ‘Almost Never’ last year, Sake has added ‘Lifted By The Sea’ to the fold. Combined they complete a rather spectacular three-track SAKE EP. ‘Lifted By The Sea’ is the most staggeringly brilliant yet. A quintessentially dreamy, understated affair, it unfolds slowly, gently introducing itself through a light acoustic strum and Leavers beautiful and evocative vocals. This alluring combination is embellished by some soft, atmospheric effects, flourishes of snappy drums and warm, hazy sounds. All melting together with a euphoric undercurrent flowing through it as she sings, hushed or soaring, her voice is always impeccable and utterly captivating. The icing on the cake for what is a spectacular, rich, intimate and rewarding experience that encapsulates all that is so truly wonderful about Sake. Indulge your ears in ‘Lifted By The Sea’ Below.

The SAKE EP is out now & available from iTunes.

Sake – ‘Stay With Me’

Earlier in the year, May possibly, we were introduced to ‘Almost Never’, the stunning debut song from Sake, the new project from North Walian singer Chloe Leavers. It was simply sublime.

Now she has returned with another utterly bewitching three and a half minutes in ‘Stay With Me’. Although it is imbued with gloomy atmospherics, gentle icy guitar strum, subtle downbeat electronics and generally quite sullen aura, their is a powerful and resounding feeling of resolute wilfulness to persevere onward, against whatever odds faced with. Once again Sake has produced something so beautiful and captivating, and then there is her voice. Well, it’s just stunningly beautiful, enchanting and emotive. Hushed or soaring, she never over does it, yet is always commanding and always in control. There really are too few superlatives in the world to adequately do her vocal prowess justice.

You can check out ‘Stay With Me’ in all it’s glory below – hopefully there’s plenty more in the way of in the not to distant future.

Sake – ‘Almost Never’


Sake is a new project from North Wales songstress Chloe Leavers and ‘Almost Never’ is the debut release from Leavers’ new guise.

‘Almost Never’ is a delicate, elegant, brooding and undeniably impressive (re)introduction to her talents. ‘Almost Never’ slowly unwinds around Leavers’ stunning voice before textured instrumentation gradually unfurls, swelling through sweeping atmospherics, subtle electronics and icy guitars, before reaching a simply stunning climax. She’s produced something oh so beautiful and intoxicating, and her voice, well it’s just stunning. Hushed or soaring, it’s just stunning. An utterly bewitching, enchanting and captivating three and half minutes.
