Surfing foreplay their forthcoming EP with the Hollow Sparrow single. I was totally sold on it 12 seconds into the first listening, the following 2:43 mins kept getting better. Jordan Stern’s unearthly vocals tinges this fine garage rock tune in a unique hue that makes it pop out in the forevermore shifting musical landscape. Absolutely looking forward for the impending rest of this 7″.

I don’t know much about the configuration of Sadhands/Crueler though I do know that both projects are by the same Cape-Town based artist/producer. Sadhands employs an RNB twist and slowed down/distorted/reverbed vocals onto its sound, while the Crueller sound is female vocals centered melancholic goth pop.
The Sadhands mixtape, Gold Line, was released on January and the Crueler EP , I Was Dancing While She Was Dying, on march. You can download them both in here.
