Mike Lindsay and Anna B Savage have unveiled their latest collaboration, the woodwind-embellished and infectiously danceable new single ‘Pretender to Surrender.’ Lead single from Mike Lindsay’s highly anticipated debut solo album, Supershapes Volume 1, the track features the captivating and playful vocals of London singer-songwriter Anna B Savage. Standing out with its squelching synths, polyrhythmic percussion, and scattershot saxophone, the track’s chorus and spiraling titular refrain create a memorable listening experience.

Speaking more on the new single ‘Pretender to Surrender,’ Lindsay said:

“This track is a battle between two Meters: 3/4 and 4/4, each one surrendering to the other, then fighting again to be bolder. In the studio Anna and I wanted a stream-of-consciousness list of everyday objects and rituals that keep going and going until you’re engulfed by domestic and majestic supershapes. Cucumbers feature a lot in this song.”

Supershapes Volume 1 is the first in a series of solo records exploring “the miraculous in the mundane,” with a focus on “everyday domestic objects and daily rituals that shape us.” The album blends a variety of electronic styles, featuring intros/outros, flutes, vocoders, and tracks that push the seven-minute mark.

‘Pretender to Surrender’ Featuring Anna B Savage is out now. Debut solo album Supershapes Volume 1 is set for release on June 14th via Moshi Moshi Records.
