Sally Shapiro are well on their way to the release of their third album, Somewhere Else, now. The idea of another whole record of Sally’s blissful vocals and Johan’s shiny beats is totally exciting, but that’s now all, the album contains contributions from Anoraak, Le Prix and this tune, the second single from the album featuring Canada’s finest retro Poppers Electric Youth.
Starman is a particularly deep and dreamy slick of these guys ScandiPop. Sally is at her hushed-Saint-Etienne best, and being backed by the vintage tones of Electric Youth’s Bronwyn, cast a beautiful vocal net. A totally compelling voice in electronic music, Sally has found the perfect music partner in Johan, who knows exactly how to deliver sweeping, passionate synth music, with a subtle 60s twist, that suits her just right. Cannot wait for the album.
Starman is released 29th January and features a reMix from electronic rumors faves Miami Nights 1984. Sally Shapiro’s Somewhere Else album is released next month on Paper Bag Recordings.
