SAFIA Release Their New Single ‘Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues’

Canberra indie outfit SAFIA has released their latest single Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues. The new track begins with a strong, modern R&B flavour that drifts into indie electro, giving the track duel citizenship in the club and tha’ club – if you get my drift.

Of their new single SAFIA explain that Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues is about getting back to basics as producers and songwriters and allowing the electronic elements to build upon an organic foundation:

“As producers we really went back to basics with Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues and focused on the songwriting before fiddling with computers and production. The whole track was written with a piano and pen and paper and by the time we were ready to add the electronic elements and produce it the track pretty much wrote itself.”

The trio of Ben Woolner (Vocals/Producer), Harry Sayers (Guitars, Synths), and Michael Bell (Drums/Producer) only formed in mid 2012 but have already made a big splash.

SAFIA’s previous single, Stretched & Faded, brought the electro three-piece much praise on triple j Unearthed and helped them land the Unearthed slot at this years Groovin’ The Moo in Canberra.

So do yourself a favour and check out the flavour of SAFIA’s new single Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues. The trio are also planning a single launch tour in late June/ early July so stay tuned for more details.

Listen to the Soul, Listen to Blues will be released 1st June.
