South London singer-songwriter Sherika Sherard knows how to tug your heartstrings – Joni Mitchell-style.
The self-taught guitarist, who is also a keen busker, is best-known for her song, ‘Give Me a Job’, which artfully expresses young people’s frustration with the apathy and lack of opportunities they face as they seek their place in the working world. Since then, she’s received support from SBTV founder Jamal Edwards and performed an ad-hoc duet of ‘Kiss from a Rose’ with Seal.
This week she shared the official music video for ‘Sending Kisses’, taken from her debut album, Just Saying. [ALBUM review link?] Directed and produced by Mohamed Hamlaoui, the video features an (overly) affectionate girlfriend who’s all excited for a night of romance with her man, only for him to stubble home and take her good graces for granted.
Will the two of them work it out? Check out the video below.
