What SAFIA has done with “Tear It Down”, beat from their Canberra’s neigbour, The Aston Shuffle, is absolutely unique. They have decreased tempo along with the voice tone in order to supremely introduce, as they call, their ‘electrónic with a little touch of pop, soul and r&b essence’.
The touches that they’ve slink into “Tear It Down” are astonishingly deep and just as gradual as the pace at which the waves break on the seaside… while the track runs, you feel how waves get closer and closer, however, the promising atmosphere that the deepened voice and piano invokes, relaxes you enough to sit still and simply let yourself to the rythm and the increasingly fresh, concentrate and deep vibes… When the wait ends and the surge finally reaches you (the drop) it’s does not lack a little to realize that you have passed to being to the total mercy of the ocean… something as exquisite as if you were diving at the bottom of the Great Barrier Reef for the reason that here the depth and effervescent tranquility of the melody, and the entire complex, evolves into another level: tempo is maintained, so tranquility too, but the synthetic waves are becoming habitué: freshness rises vehemently. When the set passes and you’re thrown back to reality, you’ll feel sparkling new, and maybe warmly wet. You’ll probably have to check for sand in your pockets.
Ben Woolner’s band labor has been majestic, in fact, we can note that summer has arrived to Canberra because an inspiring breeze from the Tasman Sea has entered to SAFIA’s studio.
