We were so thankful to have the opportunity to record this Daytrotter session as part of San Francisco's Noise Pop Festval!
Split Screens are San Francisco’s newest singer-songwriting class to keep a keen ear and eye on.
Split Screens reflects Cafiero’s admiration of Pink Floyd and of Sea Change-era Beck. It’s a lovely affair, combining long waves of electric guitar with atmospheric vocal effects.
We already know that Split Screens, the project of one Jesse Cafiero, hales from San Francisco but we could have made a pretty accurate guess regardless, thanks to brilliant new single The Sinner, a track which radiates the kind of striking glow that me, someone who’s never actually been there, only ever associates with the dazzling West Coast of America.
The Sinner drives with a solid rhythmic energy and is awash in melodic guitar lines, powerful organs and carefully placed vocal harmonies. It’s an ethereal soundscape, at once haunting and oddly upbeat, an inexpressible sense of loss permeating the words and chord changes
The new 7 inch release (“The Sinner”) from Split Screens fails to disappoint and pushes the boundaries of chillwave psychedelia
