An Ode to Heartstopper: SAPPHIRE's "crisis" sets the mood right

As a devoted fan of the TV show Heartstopper, I couldn't help but be intrigued by SAPPHIRE's latest track, "crisis." Much to my delight, the song perfectly captures the essence of new love, mirroring the palpable emotions explored in the series. With "crisis," SAPPHIRE offers a catchy and vibrant pop anthem, reflecting the unexpected thrill of falling for someone. The song's upbeat tempo and disco-pop beats create a lively atmosphere that feels tailor-made for a heartwarming moment in Heartstopper. SAPPHIRE's powerful vocals masterfully convey the emotional rollercoaster of budding romance. It's a main character moment, the soundtrack to your own story. The fact that the song was inspired by one of my favourite series speaks volumes about its resonance. It's joyful and dynamic, blending contemporary pop melodies with irresistible beats. SAPPHIRE's ability to channel complex emotions into her music is remarkable. This track is in-keeping with a bright future many have already envisioned for the young singer-songwriter, and I can't wait to hear more from her.

"I was watching season 1 of ‘Heartstopper’ when I had the first idea for ‘crisis’. The lyric ‘having a crisis’ was circling my brain and I couldn’t sleep that night. Luckily, I had a studio session the following day... ‘crisis’ was created so fast because it was so fresh in my mind, and I literally spent the entire day in the studio smiling and squealing with excitement about it.

I really wanted this song to feel like your main character moment, the opening track to your movie…so hopefully it makes you feel that way!”
