Sur Back – Jupiter, FL

Sur Back is the experimental pop brainchild of former Florida ballerina, Caroline Sans. A talented manipulator of both her voice and live performance, Caroline’s influences can be heard as clearly as the delicate layers of guitar, vocals and bass in her tracks. Caroline draws the name of her moniker from a natural phenomenon described as “the green ray,” first observedby Arctic explorer Sir George Back. The green ray is also said to be a philosophical phenomenon: a moment of epiphany where your thoughts, and the thoughts of those around you are perfectly understood—a heavy struggle that plays a clear role throughout Caroline’s tracks. The “Sir” was changed to “Sur” to imply the Turkish translation of “sur”—”steer”— in hopes her music will “steer back” its listeners to epiphanies of their own.
