There’s always been an interesting bond between sad, dark music and dance pop. SISU, fronted by multi-instrumentalist Sandra Vu (Dum Dum Girls, Boredoms, Raveonettes), is a great example of this in action. Sonically entrenched in what Vu calls the “loner sounds” of echo-ridden, cold, distorted synths and paired with irresistibly seductive, breathy vocals, the songs explode with emotion.

Featured song: “Electronic”
