A couple of brand new SAYER singles dropped last week and we need to take a minute to gush over what he might have in store for his debut performance at The Untz Festival this year. Both cuts flex the muscle of the immense production skill sitting behind his catalog of gritty analog distortion and wonky beats.
The A-side “Selkie” features fellow northern California collaborator BOATS and dials in a wicked combination of unique percussion arrangements with an unimaginably gritty bass lead. Arden Sayer has a knack for pushing the limits of the low end and without exception; both tracks continue to teeter on the edge of calculated madness. B-side “Ride or Die” showcases his individual skills and reaffirms this idea that distortion is your friend; it will take care of you.
If you are like me, then you know that any lineup with SAYER on it is a lineup that should be regarded with high esteem. Want to test that theory? Catch us at The Untz Festival this June in Mariposa, California. The results may shock you (not us).
