Said Shirley Said’s sophisticated, experimental take on alt.digitalism was born in the town of Latina, near Rome, and inspired by artists ranging from Bjork to Portishead, Talk Talk to Sonic Youth, as well as auteurs like David Lynch and Ingmar Bergman. Originally a four-piece, the band performed at a series of prestigious national festivals and live video-based events, which emphasised their dedication to the visual as well as the aural. Subsequently relocating to London, Shirley Said resized to a two-piece, comprising Giulia Scarantino (lead vocal, synth, piano, fx) and Simone Bozzato (backing vocal, guitars, programming, efx). Their sensual, minimalist techno has soundtracked French docu-dramas, Italian TV series and an exclusive fashion film for Vogue. Now entrancing audiences in the English capital and beyond, Shirley Said's original, abstract electronica has been mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Lamb, The xx, The Knife and Polica.
