Savana Santos – cheater
“cheater” is about falling out of love, but not in the way the title might suggest. The Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and producer Savana Santos paints her metaphor with broad, vivid strokes and creates an intimate atmosphere with her elegant bedroom pop production.
Savana gives us some background about the song:
“This was about a specific time in my life. It’s one of the songs that I didn’t love the day I wrote it, but a few weeks later I felt it with all of my heart. I have this note in my phone with just random shit that pops into my brain. I remember seeing the words ‘I’m a cheater I’m in love with the old you,’ and it stuck out at me. I like to pull situations apart in songs and explore them in different ways. This song was me doing that with a feeling I was having. It felt like a niche emotion that I needed to express in a way other people could understand.”
