Their new EP is dedicated to Interpol's debut album "Turn on the Bright Lights" which is celebrating its 15 year anniversary. The Sables' breakthrough moment was the release of "RTIN-WTF?(FFS&DDT)" single with Godfather of modern breaks UK famous Future Funk Squad, who has remixed The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack.
Glad to see them back with something that drives us, as the title could suggest, a few steps aside from the dancefloor. Certainly, something more intimate giving those tracks a special atmosphere. And listening to these jewels, no lights required to find their brightness and appreciate their capacity to shape our mind.
6 tracks, 6 gemstones with each its own colour. Just brilliant because...don't know why it's so. Probably because not every stone is a gemstone.
The opening "Pills", featuring Norwegian Rōyksopp, is full of clever electro harmonies and effects. Groovy without excess, entertaining without being just a source of distraction. Vocals bring you further to the source of life.
Another track, another tale, "Icarus' Flight", featuring electro Russian composer Den Shender, has something altogether enjoyable and desperate. That's how the story goes folks, you can feel it by listening. Let the electro-sax and the beat make you float high.
The third track will transcend you to the "Sublime". This one is another view of the first LP's opening track. Already flew high, close your eyes, this "Sublime Pt.II" will take you higher, to the source of peace and serenity. Take some time to appreciate the beautiful video directed by Zweizwei. For the first part video, we saw many Wonders of Mother nature. Here are still Wonders, but build-up ones.
Next track, "True Romance", is featuring British indie band Athlete and American electro hip hop artist Tyrone Lamar, Kendrick Lamar's cousin. This is kind of a curse, balancing between soft ballad, positive electro riffs and vocals, with a touch of tensed moments. What would be a romance without any doubt: "Nothing in my Life is real...". This track has an add-on, named "True Romance Extra", with more of the hip hop touch from Tyrone Lamar. A real track in itself, bringing another clever light on the same piece.
As a conclusion, the closing "Vibe" sows its introspective electro beat in your brain, letting you choose whatever it could make grow.
Well, turn off the bright lights and enjoy. Everyone deserves to hear such Jewels.
