ULTIMATE PLAYLIST: Sequin Sally
Newcomers to the electro-pop scene, Sequin Sally are bucking the trend against pop acts alike. Synthesizers and shell-suits match their pared-down melodies and ethereal vocals that depict the tumultuous events life throws at us.
The band has already amassed a cult-like following around their local hunting ground of Manchester, selling out shows across the city. With their refined sound and established presence on the local music scene, you’d be forgiven for assuming they are well seasoned within the industry. Their first EPis all set to be realised in 2019, produced with label Uncommon Ground; it is a confident and well-positioned step into the professional music scene.
Ahead of their slot at our highly anticipated Free Vibes on Saturday 5th January at Band On The Wall, the newcomers selected their top tracks for an ultimate playlist with us:
Active Child – Hanging On
My ultimate favourite song. Sonic bliss.
Wild Nothing – Partners In Motion
I can’t stop listening to this at the moment, it’s that riff.
Bronski Beat – Smalltown Boy
I owe a lot of myself to this song.
Britney Spears – Break The Ice
The pop slag in me can’t say no to a bit of mood boosting Britney.
Bicep – Glue
Sadness you can dance to, the vibe of my newer songwriting tbh.
Death In Vegas – Your Loft My Acid (Fearless Transhouse Single)
Not gonna lie I re-watched the entirety of Skins from the beginning and this song was in an episode and I’m obsessed.
Robyn – Honey
Robyn’s return with an album full of heartbreak to thumping beats was exactly what I needed this summer. Thanks for being the real MVP Robyn x
Depeche Mode – It’s No Good
Newer stuff I’ve been writing is more dark and moody, I feel like these lyrics are extremely relatable for me right now.
Tommy Genesis – 100 Bad (Charli XCX Remix)
I hate that I love this so much. I first heard it on the light up dance-floor of KIKI’s. Scatter my ashes on that dance-floor while this song plays when I’m dead and gone. I am trash.
Cocteau Twins – Heaven Or Las Vegas
BASICALLY thank you to this band for paving the way for my songwriting and sound. A perfect song that feels like a film. Timeless.
