Cairobi dazzle with tangled psych-pop number "Saint"

28 November 2016, 11:54 | Written by Laurence Day

London-based quartet Cairobi have shared their dazzling new psych-pop number "Saint".

"Saint" is a trippy brew oozing oddball charm, with Middle Eastern-inspired riffs and overblown American psych marbled together to create a knot of leftfield noise. It's heady and lush, with whirring chirrups and shuffly beats and chopped-up vox and more all stabbed into a central nugget of golden vintage rock. It's messy, sure, but it's brilliant.

"Saint" will feature on Cairobi's eponymous debut record, due out 27 January via Some Other Planet.
