Thousand Fingers unleashes a hi-octane party groove on ‘She Said’

Share

‘She Said’ is set to land today on Follow The Finger Records and finds Thousand Fingers expanding on his upbeat, multi-genre framework across his new EP that fuse old-school electro-house melodies with driving indie-dance sensibilities of his work.
The accompanying visualiser channels the spirit of the 80s VHS aesthetic, fused with booming electro-tinged bass lines and retro-futurist melodies.

The London based Turkish producer says: “This release is inspired by difficult experiences with a few number of relationships, who were part of my life – it’s based on the idea that when mind does not meet with heart, drama comes in.”

The ‘She Said EP’ bridges the gap between indie and dance music, expanding on the exploratory deep house frameworks that the producer has dived into throughout 2020. Following a climactic introduction, the title track ‘She Said’ drops into peak-time energy, as abrasive synths, processed samples and potent rhythms come together to produce the most propulsive track from Thousand Fingers to date.

Inspired by difficulties experienced in relationships and personal communication, the creation of the piece was a cathartic attempt to transform feeling into sound. The release of “She Said” is accompanied by a striking music video featuring psychedelic animations with a radical ‘80s VHS aesthetic. Moving into the EP’s second track, ‘Ten of Cups’ brings the pace down a notch for a mid-tempo slow burn that sees Thousand Fingers utilise an array of synthesisers to produce a sound palette like no other.

Expressing emotional complexity through his mastery of melody, Thousand Fingers alternates between melodies and sounds that are representative of varied states of mind, creating a sonic allegory that depicts a struggle to open up and truly connect with another. Recalling greats such as LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode and Hot Chip, Thousand Fingers’ latest EP proves that he’s not only a gifted producer of dance music but a fully-fledged artist capable of creating music that’s grounded in concepts, stories and emotions.

He goes on to add: “Ten of Cups is about the feeling that you want to emotionally engage with someone, but something holds you back to open your heart and surrender.”
