Of all those things that the British just know how to do so much better than anyone else, in terms of music their knack for immensely compelling female vocalist/cutting edge producer combination has always struck me as particularly remarkable, especially the seemingly effortless ability to turn such a collaboration into a perfect pop song without in any way making compromises on the forward-thinking production end. Examples for this claim are countless; of recent date, surely AlunaGeorge come to mind, but also Vessel's more pop-leaning (and lesser known) stuff together with his friend Lily Fannon. Today, add to that impressive list Saa, a duo recently formed by Old Apparatus member A. Levitas and singer Linn Carin Dirdal. To call their first three tracks 'promising' would be an understatement - everything sounds well-considered and strikingly confident. Dirdal's vocal delivery is gorgeous, and behind the knobs and screens, Levitas reminds us why we considered "Schwee" one of the best tracks of 2012, a track from Old Apparatus' Alfur EP, which was credited to him. Just as with his elusive collective, the production's overall tone is dark and melancholic, with wide-ranging influences from post-rock to trip-hop, R&B, and contemporary UK bass, with highly convincing results. Take a first listen below, I am pretty sure we'll be hearing a lot more from these two soon.
