Tourist proudly releases his new single “Siren”. With its pulsing programming and downtempo, the single’s ambient sounds are imbued with a serenity that’s easy to get lost in. On “Siren,” Tourist skillfully leaves room for tranquil experimentation around muscular grooves and deep, rich bass tones.
“2020 was the year I didn’t see coming,” Tourist shares. “On a macro scale, a global pandemic, civil unrest and a looming decision about the world’s future, and on a more personal level – losing one of my dearest friends suddenly, and the knowledge that I’ll be a father soon. Life and death, a siren often accompanies both of those moments and it felt like the right name for a track written in these times. It struck me that throughout all of this I am simply longing for human togetherness and ‘Siren’ is my attempt to write something that feels like an anthem for introverted times.”
