sur back – “anyone else”

– featured image courtesy of cate sans –

caroline sans will release her latest extended play as sur back, kitsch ii, on february 23rd.  our first sampling of the forthcoming effort was “valentino,” a stuttering piece of orchestral pop; on her latest single, sans embraces the first of those two descriptors head-on.

“anyone else” is a five-minute suite, a grandiose conglomerate of strings and synths and rich vocal harmonies: everything that makes sur back a consistent treat to listen to.  but all elements here feel amplified, and the lack of percussion lends an anticipatory vibe, a prolonged tension in search of its cathartic release.  perhaps that release will eventually be found; “anyone else” is a companion piece to another track titled “providence,” meaning the arrival of kitsch ii cannot come soon enough.

get swept away by “anyone else” below.
