Sur Back preps “Nostalgia in Motion” single (watch the video), playing shows
Caroline Sans has been making arty, electronic pop as Sur Back for a few years now, and released the Kitsch EP in 2016. Having since moved from Florida to NYC, Sur Back is back in business, with new single “Nostalgia in Motion” out this week. “’I’m not your nostalgia in motion’ is a declaration with infinite applications, but for me it was a version of something I said to someone that meant, essentially, a relationship can’t be built on happy memories alone,” says Caroline. “It needs a present in order to make up for the tragic ones.” Musically, the single is all high drama, gothy in a romantic, Shelley sort of way, with pinging samples and orchestral synths, and Caroline’s ethereal voice driving things along. (She also cites OutKast’s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” as inspiration.) The song premieres in this post — watch the video below.
Sur Back will celebrate the single’s release with a Brooklyn show at Alphaville on July 18 with Den-Mate and Rare DM (tickets). She’ll also open for Salt Cathedral at Elsewhere Zone One on August 2 (tickets).
