SAAL

RRR is always on the hunt for something a little out of the ordinary! Thanks to PLAYGROUND PR, they have pulled it out of the bag [thank you for sharing!] For all those music lovers looking for fresh, quirky new underground sounds, check out the new track from SAAL. When I saw the title pop up in my emails, I immediately thought of the 2002 American science fiction thriller Signs written and directed by M. Night ShyamalanI. It is moments like this that you hope you will not be disappointed. I wanted it tp reek of extraordinary. I wanted to be transported; I wanted to feel like Abe’s Exxodus ‘avin it large at moon party on Oddworld. And yes I did! It isn’t what I usually go for, but who cares? I liked it, I played it several times, and that to me is all that counts. I am looking forward to hearing what else the talented SAAL has to offer.

‘Signs’ is the debut single to come from eclectic underground artist ‘SAAL’. Pulling together Eastern and Western influences she is an artist that needs not only to be seen or heard, but experienced. Compared by the industry to Kate Bush and PJ Harvey; SAAL combines styles, breaks genres and experiments with her sweeping vocal range to make music that is nothing short of hypnotic.

Of Dutch and Indian descent with a proportion of her family residing in South America, SAAL needn’t look far for styles to influence her sound. SAAL welcomes her roots into her music with open arms and the evidence of her eclectic background is crystal clear. Her productions are a testament to her talents and the influences that have created the link between the two. Since moving to London, SAAL has set up her own recording studio, allowing her to record and produce her own vocals and enabling collaborations with a host of electronic producers. Amsterdam, beyond providing her with a degree in music management, also kickstarted her now true love: electronic music. Bass, breakbeats, progressive house and trance have all played a monumental role in her soundscape; enhancing her desires to delve deeper underground and create music that’s dark, effective and laced with hyper-modern energy.

In addition to her adoration for all things electronic, SAAL is impacted by her love of traditional Indian vocals and instruments; the two combined capture her sense of exploration and her natural curiosity for experimental music. SAAL uses her music and her contrasting influences to skilfully show that there is more than one side to her. It’s her striking originality, euphoric live performances and an all round gorgeousness that earns SAAL her title as a truly captivating artist.

 SAAL introduces ‘Signs’ like something from a planet unknown with a nod towards something seriously sci-fi. Atmospheric vocals, low end frequencies and stabs of sonic bass come together to create something eerie and eclectic before the vibe transforms at drum and bass speed, forming something high octane and dance floor ready.

 

‘Signs’ – Release Date 25th September 2015.

Cash+David emerged earlier this year with their track Funn, which went on to chart on the top 10 on Hype Machine. Releasing material exclusively online, they are already receiving a great deal of support from bloggers and tastemaker sites and I can certainly see why.

“Mad Decent’s Daktyl’s has remixed mysterious synth duo Cash + David’s thrillingly anthemic debut single Funn. In Daktyl’s hands, Funn’s bass-crunching hands-in-the-air festival vibe is slickly warped into a slinky and smooth sun kissed journey, more driving a convertible along the coast than main stage at Glastonbury.”

As described by Partisan PR: “Cash is grammatical, adding sparkle and clarity to synths, locking rhythms and eloquently programming David’s scruffy, distorted, trashy guitars and Eastern world music patterns. The polarising duo aligned on discovering a mutual love of Bacon, Dylan Thomas and B movies, a partnership concreted by their shared birthday. From David’s logic sketches and Cash’s pro-tools dexterity came a flourish of indie guitar, house beat, world rhythm, tribal rock and trash pop tracks”
