Sacha ‘We Did’ EP Review

One of iHeartRadio’s “Future Stars” Sacha is a quickly rising country singer on the scene. This past Friday, February 4th, she released her second EP titled, We Did. Familiarity rings strong for the feelings she provokes beginning with the cover art of the project that projects soft colors and “girl next door” handwritten typography.

Sacha has made a statement for herself in the US and in her home country of Canada since the release of her first EP The Best Thing in June of 2020. Sojourning into the country music scene back in 2012 with passion for music as an art form has not failed her yet, and with this release her career is bound to only go up from here.

Opening the EP with the track that doubles as the title, “We Did” suits as a strong start with a dreamy introduction and lyrics that feel young and hopeful. It feels like watching your own film play along in your mind with lines like, “Flickering front-porch lights / You sneaking out in your white Chuck Taylors /  Hot as the Fourth of July /  To this day, you’re the same heart breaker that makes the stars / The stars start falling like heaven is crying.”

'We Did' by Sacha

In the track titled “Pretty Please, Sacha calls out rude girls and touches upon the hurt that young women feel throughout their adolescent years that carry into throughout their twenties. Sometimes this topic is too taboo to talk about it, but Sacha doesn’t shy away.

“Pretty Please” feels reminiscent of Taylor Swift’s early career hit, “Mean.”

We Did seeps with womanhood from the vulnerable and sorry-not-sorry style of lyrics. The increased tempo of the track “If I Wanted Wine” lingers in the era of self-love, body positivity, and an optimistic independent attitude of being a single woman as she belts,

“Save it for another time / I’d open up my own bottle, baby / If I wanted wine.”

In the fun and aggressive track, “What The Truck” she teams up with The Reklaws to embody that same independent spirit. The contrast of the roughness and deepness of The Reklaws voice with her own strong, weighty vocals come together for a harmonious sound. This song is definitely fitting for the past years, we’ve all lived throughout the pandemic, sometimes you just want to yell, “What the Truck.”

You can catch her most recent music videos on CMT and on the road touring with Maddie and Tae on the CMT Next Women of Country Tour Presents: All Song No Static Tour in 2022. You can also watch our own interview with Sacha here.
