Fast Moving Cars   BLACKEST052

‘Fast Moving Cars’: the debut solo single from Carla dal Forno (F ingers, Tarcar). Poignant, minimalist, happy/sad art-pop…Both a song of devotion and a dream of leaving. Languid, dubwise, stoned-immaculate, but with a heartbreaking clarity and economy of expression.

Production and arrangement is poised and precise: heavy, rooted bassline, metallic percussion, astral synth-drift and whispers of reverb that conspire to open space rather than fill it. It’s the perfect staging for CDF’s voice, a floating alto at once coolly detached and disarmingly close, human, relatable.

“Don’t be so daft, do something exciting…”  The lyrics are frank; fluent in the feelings that underpin the beginning, middle and end of a relationship. Is this music of loss or of gain? Resignation or resolve? Escape or escapism?

(Can I dance to it?)
