It will never work, but we always try.
The Septembers are an Australian duo comprised of songwriter Donna Arendse and vocalist/producer James Chatburn. They just relocated to Berlin, Germany from Sydney. The Septembers’ name was inspired by Donna’s great aunt: South African anti-apartheid political activist Dulcie September.
Saux, on the other hand, is a Dutch producer and DJ creating sounds ranging from warm electronic music, underground pop, tropical melodies to anything in-between. His talents have garnished attention from recognition from BBC, Majestic Casual, FACT Mag and more. He currently has an upcoming EP in the works.
“Work” became to be the product of a spontaneous jam session on a rainy day in Amsterdam. The Saux produced beat is soothingly agonizing. The lyrics of “Work” are a somber recollection of a poignantly convoluted, wounded relationship. Chatburn mourns a love lost; Arendse remains strong and optimistic while coming to terms with reality. Overall, “Work” has gripping melodies over raw instrumentation.
It has become a monthly favorite of mine — even though my heart hurts every time.
Check out Saux’s recent single featuring Jeffrey James. Stayed tuned for Saux’s upcoming EP.
