Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Songs For Sabotage. I discovered this Duo while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the nostalgic vibes of their music.
The sound of this Duo is very modern and fascinating, an electronic musical approach that somehow finds inspiration from bands of the 80s but that manages to be modern and perfect for the music scene nowadays.
For some arrangements and perhaps also for the structure of the songs in some passages they reminded me of Depeche Mode with shades of Empire of the Sun.
The singer’s voice is very beautiful, sexy and warm and fits perfectly into the mood and atmosphere created by these songs.
Nostalgic vibes that make you think of memories of past experiences that you look at with a bit of sadness because they are no longer there but at the same time you are happy to have lived them all.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
High Fives is Songs For Sabotage’s Single Out Now!
Nostalgic and Vintage!
After a decade of wandering down the same NYC streets, musicians Richey Rose & Lina Sophie met in the fall of 2017 at Brooklyn bar, Night of Joy. Bonding over a mutual love for Swedish pop, 80s alternative/first-wave, and 00s electro, the two later formed Songs for Sabotage in early 2019. They played their debut show in August 2019 at Bushwick’s the Sultan Room and released 3 self-produced singles with b-side remixes by May 2020.
Once COVID hit, the duo relocated to Rose’s hometown of Lexington, KY for several months. It’s here that they completed their first full-length album, fittingly titled Night of Joy, before ultimately relocating to Los Angeles.
