Carla dal Forno (of Tarcar) makes her first ever solo release with this here 7” on Blackest Ever Black. Fast Moving Cars presents a pair of songs, each of which locates dal Forno’s voice in the centre of dark and sparse soundscape: she sounds at once stranded and in total control of the wispy sonics around her. 7” single.

Bittersweet 7” of gloriously melancholy lo-fi DIY bedroom pop from Carla dal Forno who's previously appeared on Blackest Ever Black as a member of Tarcar and F Ingers alongside Tarquin Manek. ‘Fast Moving Cars’ has shimmering, spacey dubwise production with a beautiful ghostly vocal that has her hit the odd bum note. Some would argue it’s a worthy candidate for a bit of autotune but I find it refreshing to hear pop music so raw. It gives it an integrity, a realness/authenticity that’s very human - an appealing, vulnerable, naive quality.
Over on the flipside is ‘Better Yet’ with it’s hazy Lynchian dreamy sound. Somewhere between Young Marble Giants and Tropic of Cancer’s reverb drenched emissions. By the time the B-side has ended I feel like I’ve spent seven minutes in her world. A seductive, irresistible little gem of a single.
