As 2020 looms, an atmosphere of disruption, both political and environmental threatens to overwhelm us all. The new single from vocalist, multi- instrumentalist and producer SAER distils this sense of impending and perhaps inevitable destruction through the microcosm of a love affair. The song’s subjects are lovers, but one of them is a “Disruptor” (which also serves as the song’s title). The question is, will their innate destructive tendencies lay this delicate thing to waste?
“Disruptor is about inner conflict” offers Davies, “A desire to test the boundaries even with a feeling of safety and contentment, imposter syndrome can set in. We have an inherent self-destruct button and it is those closest that suffer. Disruptor is a plea and a warning. We all hope to change but some of us share an underlying gravity to disorder”.
The ‘Disruptor’ EP is proceeded by a special release of SAER’s reimagining of recent pop-hit Never Really Over by US superstar Katy Perry as an emotional and moving ballad.
