Sirens Of The Sea
Above & Beyond present OceanLab
Why labels do what they do has never ceased to confuse me, and here’s another example. “Sirens of the Sea” has been in club circulation forever, having made one of its first commercial appearances on Anjunabeats Volume 3 back in 2005, yet wasn’t given a full single release until July of this year. Weird. Regardless, this is probably OceanLab’s most solid single since the unstoppable success of “Satellite”, rocking not only amazing production and remixes, but gorgeous song writing and vocals courtesy of vocal trance darling Justine Suissa. The lyrics depict lucid watery imagery and uses the mythological narrative of the Siren, the half woman, half bird sea nymphs, to create a metaphor for powerlessness in love and longing, the chorus proclaiming, “I… Cannot.. Resist.. Your Call…”. The single includes 7 mixes, but go straight to the Maor Levi reconstruction to experience the song in its dubbed prime.
