“I’m not falling for it.”

“Telephone” by Salt Petal | Now, some surf dance. I guess that makes sense, considering the cold snap we unexpectedly endured in Taipei. After surprisingly single-digit temperatures, we need some sun, yes? Salt Petal’s “Telephone” does its business efficiently: it comes in, allures and endures, and never lets up for the four minutes they’re allotted. The five-piece came together after a trip to Buenos Aires – you can see the Latin American influences here; it’s playful and classy and yet not obvious. This track is off their upcoming release, Rare Hearts, which drops on 28 April. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
