CMU Approved

Approved: Sälen

By | Published on Wednesday 8 June 2016


Sälen are Ellie Kamio, Paul Taylor Wale and Is Tropical’s Simon Milner, and they are currently turning heads with new track ‘Diseasey’. It follows on from last years’ ‘IILWMBF’, which also gained a rush of attention.

With two tracks to their name, the trio are now starting to show signs of a definable sound. Kamio’s conversational lyrics sit on top on instantly likeable pop; it all feels very relaxed and works hard to distract you from how much is going on in the background.

You’ll be able to catch them live at Birthdays in Dalston on 29 Jun. Right now, listen to ‘Diseasey’ here:
