about

‘Storm’ is the debut release of Melbourne based project SAATSUMA. This track is the first taste of their upcoming EP, which is set to be released mid 2016.

SAATSUMA was birthed via a studio collaboration between Memphis Kelly, Joel Ma and Cesar Rodrigues over 2015. The result was a merging of each of the individuals’ styles and influences to create a collection of ambient electronic songs. The project is being mixed by Declan Kelly (aka Dream Kit).

Surging with the dynamic nature of the track itself, this contemplative clip explores the interplay between artificial and natural elements. Through experimentation with different textures and fractured light, the clip features minimal after effects and was mostly manipulated during takes using coloured glass. The result is a visual representation of the track’s strikingly eerie sense of lucidity and inner turmoil.

The music is driven by elements of hip hop, house & neo-soul, drawing inspiration from artists like FKA twigs, James Blake, Little Dragon to J-Dilla and Flying Lotus.

lyrics

It’s later than you think it is
Room is growing dark
Thought we’d have more time than this
Before it fell apart
Shadows coming through the door
They’re everywhere
I can’t see you anymore
Your light is gone from here

The storm will break
You’ll fall away
But I can count on you
To come again

A thousand miles high again
And the clouds are rolling in
Spiralling towards me now and I
Wonder where you’ve been
All the light’s fading from your eyes
You’re not here

The storm will break
You’ll fall away
But I can count on you
To come again
