With mellow and moody undertones, Sarah Yagki’s latest track This Won’t Hurt is a nostalgic capsule of noughties pop and minimalist retro dance beats. The overlapping vocals emulate the fiery passion of The Veronicas and their addictive pop sound. The title ‘This Won’t Hurt’ suggests confidence, while the full body of the lyrics mirrors the anticipation of choices that will inevitably cause pain.

This song is about falling back into habits with an old relationship, with the inability to let go of one another, despite knowing that it will hurt. It’s about relearning to see someone you used to love in a different light, and the push and pull when processing to let go of someone you can barely see yourself without.
