“Soul Syncable,” Sevdaliza’s latest slice of ambitious dark pop, emerged on the day of the super blue blood moon—should you believe in trippy lunar happenings—and was accompanied by a special message. “These are glimpses of her supernatural realm,” wrote the Iranian-Dutch musician. The “her” was unclear—perhaps a reference to herself, or to the moon.
“Soul Syncable” sevdaliza这首dark pop单曲发行于蓝色血月（1月31日）那天，足已显出她那庞大的野心。你或许信仰那天月亮仿佛嗑了迷幻药一般，随着某种信号产生神秘的现象。“窥见她那超自然的神秘领域”sev写道。“她”是一个不清楚的人物——可能涉及到sev自己，亦或是那天的月亮Regardless, the idea of glimpses into the beyond resonates throughout “Soul Syncable,” as the track flickers between bright and dark like a nightlight about to blow. It opens with luscious string arrangements that slowly melt into a trip-hop beat, with woozy keys that sneak in over the top, followed by Sevdaliza’s breathy, almost Aaliyah-like vocals. The effects are ghostlike and eerie, as well as heavily nostalgic for Dummy-era Portishead and classic 1990s UK garage acts. “I'm on codeine, suffer to dream,” she sings, sounding high on the enigma of it all. “Soul Syncable” is familiar like an apparition from the past, but it sparkles with promise for the future
不管这首歌表现如何，“瞥见”这一想法已然超越了歌曲给人的共鸣，而且贯穿歌曲始终，这首歌在光暗之间来回摇曳，宛如暗夜中舞动的灯光。歌曲以性感的弦乐编排开头，配合sev她那神似Aaliyah的嗓音，还夹带着诱人的呼吸声，渐渐融入trip-hop的节拍中，伴着令人头晕目眩的曲调逐渐推至高潮。这效果让人感到怪异而可怖，同时也能体会到 Dummy时期Portishead的沉重思愁以及九零年代车棚电子所表现的经典。她唱到“我沉迷于可待因，在梦中受尽折磨”，可以看出她在无解的谜中探索的喜爱。“Soul Syncable”听起来很耳熟，犹如来自过往的幽灵游荡于现在，却闪烁着对未来承诺的花火。
