Boomkat Product Review:
"Conceptual debut album of this italian sound researcher - for fans of Fennesz, Murcof, Max Richter, Arvo Part, etc. SaffronKeira is a project established in 2008 by Eugenio Cara from the island of Sardinia, Italy. Combining subtle and sometimes even almost invisible rhythms with textures of sound he confidently moves between minimalistic pieces and classic ambient tracks which should please both the analytic ears and the listeners who just want to dive into the music. Often, SaffronKeira's tracks start off rather abstracly, slowling building up an eerie atmosphere with myriads of sound bits, before finally a reduced piano clears up the picture and takes the listener by storm. A highlight of this album is the last song, "Endless agony of being sick", where space-filling melodies, hollow drums and minimal female vocals are combined into something which can be simply called "epic" without doubt. Conceptually, "A New Life" is split in two complementary halves termed "Old Life" and "New Life". This concept is extended by the artwork, which is kept purely in black and white and easily manages to complement SaffronKeira's sound works in a pictorial fashion. "A New Life" will be released as a double Cd containing both "Old Life" and "New Life" and two double 12'' vinyl albums, containing "Old Life" and "New Life" separately."
