Saa recently announced the release of their self-titled debut EP on boutique electronic label Left Blank with the gorgeous 'Your Sword Is Your Silence'. The duo now follow up with the video for 'Against Interpretation' off the EP, with darkly kaleidoscopic hypercolour images set to the sound of intricate and bass heavy avant-pop which premiered on Noisey.com here.
Saa is a new project forged across borders between Asher Levitas of acclaimed shadowy London outfit Old Apparatus, and Norwegian avant-garde musician and 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.
