We didn’t know about Vancouver experimental pop artist Savana Salloum aka Plazas until this week, and boy have we been missing out. Her debut EP Internal may have escaped us in 2015, but now that our ears have feasted upon new single “Silent Empires”, rest assured that oversight will never be repeated.
From a forthcoming EP called Empathy, “Silent Empires” is an ambitious, original production in a style that we’d like to call “wall-of-synths”. Overtop it all, we’ve got Salloum’s beautiful voice carrying a great, slightly-melancholy melody. An extremely promising new artist! We’ll be watching for that EP, out this March on NBD.
