SANNIA‘s newest single august is OUT NOW following a first play on triple j’s Home and Hosed, a bright, yearn-core pop song about the one who got away.

The third single from her upcoming debut album, august is a song about the sweet simplicity of first love and how it lingers on – I still see you on summer nights / maybe we’ll meet in another life.

“August is the quintessential love letter to your teenage flame. It’s a song about the one that got away; the high school boyfriend that deserved better; the one you thought you’d spend forever with; you never forget your first,” said SANNIA. “I wrote august in the middle of that Melbourne lockdown during august itself when I was looking back to better times perhaps with rose tinted glasses on. It’s a windows down, driving down the coast, wind in your hair, jasmine in the air sort of song. As a self-appointed sad girl it’s been liberating and exciting to write my first ever love song.”

SANNIA‘s upcoming album JAMES has seen her work with industry giants Toby Dundas (The Temper Trap), Andy Mak (Vera Blue), and Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy). She played an exclusive and acoustic JAMES album preview at a sold out Beleura House and Garden in Victoria on October 13.

Her last single trigger was added to iHeart radio rotation, spun consistently across triple j Lunch Time with Dave Woodhead, Mornings with Lucy Smith and Weekend Arvos with Jess Perkins, as well as added to Spotify’s Fresh Finds AU/NZ playlist.
