Things are going pretty well for Siba.
The Danish artist counts Zane Lowe and Annie Mac as fans, Charlie XCX as a collaborator and has a hell of a lot of people excited about his new EP My Life With Jessie, My Friends & The Rest Of The World, available digitally from 9th December. For those who can’t wait until then, the electro-pop heir-apparent has shared Trumpets Sound Good For Endings, the second single from his forthcoming release.
The track is an upbeat ode to moving on, driven by an acidic instrumental that inspires thoughts of Hot Chip at their most playful. It’s a glittering piece of modern pop music, that’s never quite sure whether it’s sexy, serious, both or neither. The pleasure’s in the fluctuation, though – and SIBA’s an artist most comfortable in the musical grey areas. He’s a hybrid.
“Trumpets is the last song and the last chapter of my life with Jessie, and the last kinda step for the break recovery,” he explains. “This song is more about my life now, all the stuff that’s around me and what I think about the world and how I see it“.
Trumpets Sound Good For Endings is a zesty, mischievous blend of entangled sounds and ideas, never sticking with one for too long. It’s a loose-footed glimpse into the brain of one of pop’s most exciting young names, with a promise of much more where it came from. Keep an eye out.
Volume #16 is finally here. Order now.
