      premiere: sälen, diseasey

      A sugar-sweet tune laced with the bitter taste of regret.

      Sälen are the mystery London band that got blogs talking with their self-released debut, an ode to unrequited love, IILWMBF (I'm In Love With My Best Friend) six months ago. They've since impressed a packed out Old Blue Last and got busy writing more of the good stuff. Talking of which, having just received its very first radio play courtesy of Annie Mac on R1, we are pleased to share the trio's first official single Diseasey with the rest of the world. 

      Right from the clinky-clonky Hans Zimmer True Romance intro, we're sure you'll fall hard too. This is a song to soundtrack the bad decisions that felt so right at the time, one for anybody who has found themselves in an awkward lust-driven situation and is left asking both themselves and their new pal, why am I in bed with you?

      When asked for a quote about the track, the band provided the following:

      Diseasey is due for release on 20th May via Machine Records. Catch Sälen live at Birthdays on 29th June.
