Sapphire Slows – True Breath 12″


A fresh voice is hard to find amidst modernity’s sea of static. Yet young Tokyo electro-Cocteau Sapphire Slows shines a singular touch across a gallery of delicate Casio nightlife masks. There’s a wonderfully hushed vibe to her most translucent tracks, beats materializing out of stray radio waves, electric piano accents dissipating into the silent skyscraper skyline, weightless synth textures billowing above chiaroscuro city parks. A sinuous mood of metropolis insomnia, wandering and wondering and lingering too long. True Breath is her stateside debut EP after a 7 inch on Big Love so soak in her subtle night moves now while the breath is still warm. Black vinyl 12 inches in bilingual new-wave patterned shadow-portrait jackets.
