LB007: Saa EP.

Left Blank return after a short hiatus with their first release of 2013 from Saa; a new project forged across borders between Asher Levitas of acclaimed shadowy London outfit Old Apparatus, and Norwegian avant garde musician/vocalist Linn Carin Dirdal.

Taking cues from classic pop production of the 70's and 80's, the early 4AD sound of The Cocteau Twins et al, pastoral folk, along with contemporaries such as The Knife, Saa make gloriously intricate avant-pop, as exciting as it is unclassifiable.

Levitas' high production values will come as no surprise to fans of the aforementioned Old Apparatus, and here his complex rhythm arrangements and delicate electronics perfectly support Dirdal's layered vocals, which range from upfront and powerful to moments of choral beauty.

This is music as fresh as anything else you'll hear this year.

Dirdal's voice is both soulful and full of personality, and a natural fit for Levitas' accomplished production (…) Saa have crafted a pop-abstracted space rich in dialogue and communication – and one that crafts an enticing blueprint to build upon - Dummy Mag

...the relationship between sparse beats and dark/light pensive electronics with a tender, pastel-flavoured vocal make for a delightful and soulful symbiosis. They feed off one another with an otherworldly underworld charm (…) it all feels so damn human - The 405

Released 08.07.13 on Vinyl & Digital, first 100 vinyl copies include insert, digital includes exclusive bonus track.
