Saachi Sen Trusts Her Instincts In Don’t Say It

Despite being inspired by the demise of a relationship, Saachi Sen‘s new single Don’t Say It is an upbeat pop track which is ideal for this transitional period from Summer to Autumn. With a summery pop thread running through, an insanely catchy chorus, shimmering instrumental flourishes, and Latin-inspired rhythms, there is so much to sink your teeth into. 

The Mumbai-born Londoner collaborated with producer Sam Ellwood on her new single and explains the inspiration behind it. 

“Don’t Say It comes from a gut feeling you get when something’s not right in a relationship, well before any outward signs. I wrote the ‘I don’t think you love me’ hook on instinct a few months before the worst breakup of my life, and didn’t touch it all that time, convincing myself it was in my head. Afterwards though I had the drive to finish it in a single recording session. It’s created a really novel contrast of in-the-moment choruses against verses in hindsight.” – Saachi Sen

Saachi Sen hasn’t been resting on her laurels during the global pandemic and lockdown. She reached the Semi-Finals of both the UK songwriting contest and the world-renowned International Songwriting Competition. She also reached the shortlist of Abbey Road’s ‘Topline’ Competition.

If you love Don’t Say It as much as we do then look out for the accompanying music video out soon and Saachi Sen’s debut EP. Things are looking bright for this talented young artist.

Future shows:
Wiltons Music Hall – May 2021 (postponed from 2020)
