So after a rather long day at my day job, I came home to check my blog email and came across a note from a New York-based vocalist, who goes by the name of DAIR. “Safehouse” is her debut single, which will appear on her forthcoming EP, The Last Sign, which is slated for a release sometime in the fall.
“Safehouse” is a slow burning and sensual track comprised of DAIR’s soulful and unhurried vocals, skittering percussion, swirling electronics and gently rippling synths. Sonically, several things come to my mind – Skye Edwards and her work with Morcheeba, Stumbleine’s recent collaboration with Violet Skies and others. And much like her contemporaries, DAIR’s vocals manage to express an aching longing and world weariness within a turn of a phrase.
