Listen/review: Sälen - The Drwg

Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki

Sälen’s latest track ‘The Drwg’ arrived fully formed to be the perfect late summer anthem. There’s a poignant lushness to their velvety arrangements. A love song for contemporary life, the smooth descending bass lines and treacly synths form a catchy melange. The video’s not half bad either - shot in London on their iPhones and spliced together, it has the nostalgic sentimentality of a group of beatniks whiling away the days in a romantic haze of blissed-out camaraderie. Carpe diem indeed.
