ShirleySaid - 'Merry-Go-Round' music video

Drawing us all in to their fuzzy dream, ShirleySaid combine gentle guitar riffs with unrelenting synths and spaced-out vocal melodies.

The first part of a AA-side release of 'Merry-Go-Round' / 'Salvation', out 23.03.15, encapsulates the band's minimalist approach. The video, directed by Gabriel Beretta reflects that same chilling calm. There are similarities to Poliçia in the Hannibal Lecter serenity as ShirleySaid curate the song's atmosphere with meticulous attention to every swell and hum. Scarantino's vocal harmonies are unsettling and original, and, even though you're watching an animal being torn limb from limb as a woman is spattered with blood, the song retains a sensual quality.

The Italian ambient electro duo (now relocated to London) comprise of Giulia Scarantino (lead vocal, synth, piano, fx) and Simone Bozzato (backing vocal, guitars, programming, efx). ShirleySaid will be holding an official single launch party at North London's The Finsbury 26.03.15. If you can't wait that long, they're also playing The Old Queen’s Head (also in London) 15.02.15.

The first person to guess what this song is about gets to watch the video before anyone else, right here.

If you know Raw Meat at all, you'll know we like our coffee black, our kittens fluffy, and our hip hop? Well we like that old school.
