Rare DM’s Billie Holliday-indebted croon lilts with the relaxed calm of someone whose already cried away all the tears they could muster long ago.

Following in the shadows of the previously released »Almost a Year« and the more recent single »Caracal«, Rare DM’s »Vanta Black« tackles subjects and moods fit for the titular hue, itself the blackest manmade pigment, which is currently under exclusive license to artist Anish Kapoor’s studio. She sings tales of relationships damaged by distance and destructive tendencies, somewhat reluctantly relieved by freedom yet ridden with separation anxiety.
