The first days of Fall has just begun, and what better way to commemorate a fresh new season than with a fresh new slice of music from Laetitia Sadier! Laetitia is currently on tour across the USA and her newest release- a cassingle, "Dry Fruit" b/w "The Scene of the Lie" (Remixed by CAVE)- drops tomorrow (you'll find it on the merch table at her shows!), but we're set to give you a taste today!
Co-written with David Thayer (of Little Tornados, and featuring John Herndon on drums), "Dry Fruit" is a song about that ineluctable passage...and the sense of loss it can provoke, as one circles through memories that seem as real as the day they were first encountered. Built on Laetitia's rhythm guitar with touches of vocals, keyboard lines, electric guitar, vibes and samples, "Dry Fruit" has plenty of musical juice! As befits a song about the life's intractable forward march, it's over and done just as we're settling into the cozy depths implied.
Viewing the musical landscape of "Dry Fruit", David Thayer has extracted a video to parallel Laetitia's sublime melodies with inventive visions. Cascades of soft waves ebb and flow, echoing her soothing, yet commanding, voice. Layers of visual beauty reveal themselves over time, unfolding through our eyes into our brain, and the soul below. "Dry Fruit" is an elegantly nuanced work and is maybe even more enjoyable in video format, depending on what kind of person you consider yourself to be - audio or visual? Watch the video now, and join Laetitia on her remaining tour dates! Grab a cassingle and lean back---total serenity is near!
