Another case of falling in love with a name. This time on the Electroqueer website, one of my favourite sites for discovering new music.
I was surprised to find that Sally is in fact Swedish (Sally Shapiro is her stage name) and that she specialises in retro electropop – Italo disco music with a Swedish bent. Combine all of that with an album seductively named “Disco Romance”and how could I resist?
Here is the video clip for the fabulous single “Jackie, Jackie”:
And here’s one of my absolute favourites “Find My Soul”:
Sally has released the one album, “Disco Romance”. It’s best to get the North American edition since that has some extra songs on it. There are also two remix albums – “Remix Romance” volumes 1 and 2. It has been easy to find the albums and if all else fails, they are on iTunes.
Sally’s pure voice against a background of atmospheric electropop is an unbeatable combination. I can listen to her all day and just drift away.
Did I mention that there’s a new album not too far off? 🙂
