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.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

The B-side of their recent scorcher of a single, 'Vent' was filmed at Hermitage Works Studios by John Clay AKA Clark Kent's Rock n Roll Revue.

We're addicted to this sneakily little funky number. And we definitely want to get high with all our mothers.

Those pesky Table Scraps have written a slacker anthem, and created a visual prayer to the beloved loser gods to go along with it.
