Listen: Sage’s “Don’t Tell Me”
Ambroise Williaume, better known as SAGE, has just released a new track from his forthcoming self-titled album due April 29th. The single, Don’t Tell Me, continues Williaume’s unusual electronic arrangements that are more organic than mechanical.
Williaume told The Fader magazine, “‘Don’t Tell Me’ is a song about people who lie to themselves, who play a character in their lives instead of living them.” Adding, “Musically, it’s one of the most simple songs of the album, almost like a blues chord progression, except for the first pre-chorus that plays with chromatic movements in the melody. I wanted to have a very dynamic and analog sound on this song and twisted all the drum machines by recording them several times in an old tape recorder.”
With that said, the song is a unique and reflective experience to listen to. His album will be one to watch for.
