29/06/2015 – Sinah-Loveless (2015)

London producer confirms influences on emotionally charged single

 

 

London based Sinah sounds like she was weaned on minimal techno and trip-hop as a child. Of course I have no way of proving this sweeping statement, however if you listen to her latest single Loveless, it all becomes apparent. Broody slow tempo basslines are juxtaposed with off-colour beats, while her high register vocals soar and float above everything giving light and space to an otherwise claustrophobic experience.

 

 

If this sounds all doom and gloom, then I’ve done something wrong. Loveless, and B-Side Potters are life affirming. The piano and sitar combined create an uplifting feeling that’s hard to just focus on the melancholy melodies Sinha has layered beneath them. Potters is somewhat a dubby affair, more so than Loveless, but this showcases Sinah’s ability not just as a producer, but as an arranger too.

 

 

Yes at times Loveless does sound remarkably like Massive Attack’s monumental Teardrop, from the rhythmic beat, maelstrom-esque synths/keyboards and hushed vocals. While this isn’t a bad thing, the influences are a little too obvious at times. Having said that Loveless/Potters are incredible playable and show why Sinah has been getting the hype she has. 2015 looks set to be the year when Sinah shines!

  1. Wow! This is deep stuff. Not sure if I like the music, but we need all sorts to sift the wheat from the chaff.
