In this week’s edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Saramai and her brand new single ‘Trees’.
There can be no doubting the ambition of ‘Trees’, the culmination of washing cymbals, pounding beats, flowing piano and distant vocals the song is a dreamlike.
Everything seems removed from its context, melodies and rhythms collide into one another with conviction while Saramai’s siren-esque voice calls us further into the dream, further into the sonic world of ‘Trees’ itself.
An expressionistic piece of alternative-pop, ‘Trees’ by Saramai is a song worth submitting to and experiencing. And the experience is the key, ‘Trees’ is very much a song that you take out of it what you bring into it.
