Budding indie-pop songstress Sasha Sloan has released the haunting visual for her newest single, “The Only,” on Wednesday (Sept. 6). The single follows the release of her sad girl EP, which arrived earlier this year in April.
The video sees Sloan disconnected from her various surroundings as she hangs out with “friends,” lays in bed by her lonesome, and sets her emotions free once she’s in the comfort of her home.
The melancholy track, co-written by Henry Agincourt Allen, who is professionally known as King Henry (Major Lazer, Beyoncé, Madison Beer), details the delicate balance between solitude and a longing to connect and share a spark with someone else as Sloan croons that she’s “talkin’ to voices in my head/because at least they’re listening” — something that anyone can relate to who has ever had trouble opening up.
In the past, Sloan has co-written with Charli XCX and Camila Cabello, and has had her lush vocals appear on Kygo‘s “This Town” and Odesza‘s “Falls.”
