LISTEN: Sarah Dooley, “Is This Heartbreak?”

Oct 19, 2020

LISTEN: Sarah Dooley,

Artist: Sarah Dooley
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Song: “Is This Heartbreak?”
Album: Is This Heartbreak?
Release Date: October 23, 2020

In Their Words: “This song is kind of the thesis statement of the album. I wrote it when I was falling for someone, and terrified. I’d been burned badly fairly recently and yet there I was, making myself vulnerable again. You feel like an idiot. Like, will I ever learn? It’s about that terrifying moment where you lose control and let emotions take over. Your brain’s instinct is always to protect your heart, and attempt to prepare for the two options that every relationship presents: ‘is this love? is this heartbreak?’ But ultimately, living a full life means taking that plunge, regardless of future pain, fully knowing the devastation that may wait for you on the other side.” — Sarah Dooley
