In this week’s addition of TLMT’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to the Saramai and their new single ‘Hanging Around’.
A bare-boned offering from Saramai, ‘Hanging Around’ is rough around the edges but big on feeling.
From the raw reverberated sound of the record to Saramai’s lilting isolated vocal, the live-take feel of ‘Hanging Around’ serves the song completely and gives the music the space to move both dynamically and emotively. Resulting in a single that has a strong depth of field to it.
Saramai will play Vantastival this weekend (June 4th) as well as the B.A.R.E festival on June 11th.
