Safia Are Back With ‘Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds’
Canberra lads SAFIA return with the follow up to last year’s highly celebrated debut single ‘Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues’ titled ‘Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds’.
Quite different to their 2013 entry, SAFIA have brewed a premium mix of soft and stark instrumentation that bounces off the delicate walls of a chilling and intricate pattern. Facilitating a dark, tribal sound, this large textural blanket has been left underneath the paranoia of the track’s leading vocalist, unable to throw the cushiony linen over himself.
Instead, he lays uncomfortably numb over the top of it, struggling to find solace from the episode replaying within his mind. Suffering a horrible state of claustrophobia, his voice desperately seeks guidance with the most vulnerable yet achingly beautiful delivery; as it swiftly sweeps across the thrilling composition of ‘Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds’.
SAFIA‘s second single, ‘Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds’ is available as a free digital download via the band’s SOUNDCLOUD.
