“VISION” FEAT. SAM LAO AND ZHORA
May 27, 2015
As we’ve had the pleasure to follow the path of Sarah Jaffe and her ever-expanding sound we have tirelessly championed her diverse approach to songwriting and performance. What started with the folk-infused “Clementine” has run the spectrum all the way to last year’s “Leaving The Planet.” With her release for Don’t Disconnect we believed we were looking at Sarah’s final form, as an artist seamlessly blending electronic experimentation with a songwriting skill set that is second to none. With her new single for “Vision” and the accompanying EP of the same name, we now realize Sarah continuing to pull out new tricks!
Vision features remixes of Don’t Disconnect tracks by an array of producers such as Grammy Award winning Symbolyc One, Rob Sanchez, Mystery Skulls, Ether Villain and Blue, The Misfit. Collaboration has always been a big part of Sarah’s inspiration and sound, specifically citing her experience with Symbolyc One as a “pivotal experience.” She has grown through collaboration so it’s natural that she trusts these colleagues to take excellent care of her art. Vision also features two brand new tracks, “Vision” and The Dividends (a project that features Jaffe and Symbolyc One) “Crossed My Mind” standout as tracks that show Sarah’s continuous quest towards exploration and reinvention. Like a pop gem out of 1986, “Vision” is a song that feels completely at home with the synth layers and electronic back beat that pushes and pulses throughout. She also enlisted the help of her Dallas-area friends Sam Lao and ZHORA to spice things up.
True to the bright and colorful nature of the song, the video for “Vision” is splashed with primary colors from beginning to end. Lots of straight, angled edges against a white background give it a decidedly 80’s appeal as Sarah and co. take turns serenading the camera. The footage is on a constant rotation, panning right to left, each time revealing a new combination of visuals. Their hair is teased high and the makeup is abundant, but make no mistake, this isn’t just a rehash of nostalgic days gone by, it is a cutting edge sound wearing inspiration on its sleeve.
