Whether she is collaborating with DJs like Gattüso and R3HAB or getting her songs in our favorite films and television shows, Sarah Reeves is putting together a soundtrack for our lives. For those casual moments like watching movies on Hallmark or television series on ABC or FOX, Sarah’s music has been there to enhance the experience. For driving around town or living it up at a party, her singles and albums have brought out the necessary emotions, getting fans to return to her time and time again. Recently, she has been capturing the twists and turns of the human experience through singles like “Billboards On Sunset,” working towards the release of her upcoming album, Best Days. When this album drops on September 22, its 16 tracks will serve as a solid soundtrack to the short days and long nights of fall that are ahead. Before we go there, though, Sarah is releasing one more single that will help us say a final goodbye to summer.
On “Zuma Beach,” Sarah lets go of regrets and expectations. To the sweet sounds of the acoustic guitar and light percussion, she sings, “And don’t expect me to be walking on top of those waves / What faith I have left’s gonna need some healing / Gonna need a minute just for breathing / But I know that I’m gonna be okay,” trying to stay optimistic about her future. The gentle accompaniment makes her vocals truly shine, so assured and at peace. Overall, the song can ease us into whatever transitions we are making in our lives, Sarah’s words vanquishing the hesitations.
In the music video, Sarah takes us for a leisurely walk along the beach. As she walks, she sheds the extra layers that are keeping her warm, such as her beanie and scarf, embracing the chilly breeze from the ocean. After placing a significant necklace near a small sandcastle on shore, she steps into the water, calmly wading through the sun-kissed waves. Where does she go? You can find out below.
You can listen to “Zuma Beach” on platforms like SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify.
