Become the Root is the embodiment of Sara Kendall — aka Llynks — flailing through her 20s. Moving from one mundane job to the next, throwing shit at a wall and hoping something eventually sticks. It’s about the uncertainty of existence, desperately obsessing over time wasted and what life should be instead of actually living it. Wondering whether she’s doing enough and whether she should have already accomplished this or that.
Or at least, that’s how it started.
As an artist, her haunting and introspective words explore themes where she pushes through some of this self-doubt and gets to new highs of empowerment and self preservation. Musically, a saccharine voice and robust synths create undeniable melodies and moments that juxtapose the human connection with the noise and chatter of post-Millennial cyberpunk.
