“Numbered” is the impressive debut single from a newcomer out of Tasmania who goes by the name Calypso, giving us the first taste of her upcoming Untitled EP that is due out over the coming months.
Calypso is known by some for her role in a project out of Hobart called S L O W, but what you may not know is that she has also been working on her own solo stuff for a little while, and is now feeling confident and ready to share it with the rest of us.
“Numbered” is the first taste of Calypso’s debut four-track EP, and if this is anything to go by, we are certainly in for a treat. As it opens with the strum of the piano, Calypso’s gorgeous voice starts to tell its tale, when it’s met by an infectious driving-beat and a distant wailing saxophone, right before being swooped up and carried away by an uplifting electro-groove.
“The story behind “Numbered” is quite obvious through the lyrics in the song; it’s about the struggle between two people as their love for each other is coming to an end – the painful experience of wanting to keep somebody close, but knowing that you will eventually have to let go” – Calypso
“Numbered” is available through Spotify, and for a limited time you can also get a free download through Calypso’s Soundcloud.
Over the coming weeks we can expect a sensual and stimulating Raef Sawford-directed music video, just ahead of the Untitled EP’s release on June 22nd.
