Sälen, the east London trio of Ellie Kamio, Paul Taylor and Simon Milner, introduced themselves last year with the straight-talking IILWMBF (I’m In Love With My Best Friend) as well as Diseasey, which topped Spotify UK’s Viral 50 chart and the acclaimed The Drwg.
Already in 2017 they’ve dropped the acclaimed, bittersweet Heartbreak Diet and Pretty, Fake. The band have sold out headline shows at London’s Kamio and Electrowerkz, and appeared at Annie Mac’s AMP night at the Jazz Cafe and BBC Introducing’s event at the Roundhouse, as well as The Great Escape and Parklife festivals in recent weeks.
The Guardian recently described their music as “bitter-edged synthpop with fangs” with i-D calling it “dark love poetry with a side of sour candy.
