“I wonder what I’d be like // Maybe I’d sleep a little better at night”
Singer-songwriter Sasha Sloan is known for crafting intricate and emotional pop songs. With her new release, “House With No Mirrors” – the follow-up to the rather upbeat “Lie”- she might have just outdone herself (again).
Her latest song tackles an extremely sensitive but very important topic: body issues and body acceptance.
“House With No Mirrors” lays out in heartbreaking detail how those struggles have affected Sasha Sloan and how she might have lived a better, easier and more beautiful life if she could only overcome them. Accompanied by only a strummed guitar and a perfectly minimalistic production, the singer shares her musings with us and finds her way into our hearts. It’s as raw and personal as only Sasha Sloan can get.
In a personal Instagram post, the singer explained the very personal meaning behind the song. She shares that “for as long as I can remember I’ve hated my appearance (…) I so desperately wanted to be skinny I developed an eating disorder that I’m still living with every day. the way I see myself has put a strain on my closest relationships and it’s ruined so many moments that should’ve been fun.“
The song is the singer’s way of wondering “what I would be like if I spent less time worrying about my appearance and more time worrying about what really matters.“
