SAFIA - Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds

3/19/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Aussie electro dudes SAFIA have released a new song called "Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds," Aside from the fact the track name sounds suspicously like a rejected Radiohead album title, it's very original and cOOOOLL. It's got some reggae/"world" vibes, and also does that thing that Rokysopp has in all his songs (one day I will learn the names of the instruments I swear). Additionally, the lead singer's voice is raw in a way that you don't often see in electronic music. If that's not enough to entice you, halfway through this song becomes pretty theatrical/dramatic. I mean, I'm not talking Celine Dion, but there are organ sounds of some distorted sort, and a loop that bellows, "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW" over and over. On another note, what the f is that teddy bear about? It's like the Blair Witch's childhood doll emerging from the woods. LOVE MEEEEEEEE.

Also listen to their other song, "Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues" It's less weird.
