Brought together by a shared passion to create deep, forward thinking music, SANDSCAPE unveil their debut single “Artificial Rush”. A brooding and emotive track, it draws the listener in to a world of sliding shadows, brooding avant-garde progression and cascading layers of expansive production. Drenched in atmosphere and emotive lyrics, it tells a story of temporary highs, sugar rushes, short-term satisfaction and self-deception. Listen here
Formed by producer Dan Sonabend & vocalist Eliza Shaddad, the duo draw on their jazz and electronic background (as well as their respective Israeli and Arab heritages) to create dark, intimate and experimental songs. Sonabend, born to English and Iraqi parents and raised in Tel Aviv, made his reputation as a bassist and arranger before gravitating towards film scoring and music production. His background as a performer and experience as a media composer merge into a fresh and unique production style, composing and orchestrating scores for films such as Act/or, Butterfly Kisses and BBC TV series Redwater and working with artists such as Fictonian, Culprate and Rob McVey.
