Swedish Italo disco/ synthpop duo Sally Shapiro will release their new album Sad Cities on February 18th via Italians Do It Better, and today, the band are sharing their new single “Christmas Escape“.
Speaking about the track Johan Agebjörn, one half of Sally Shapiro said: “‘Chrismas Escape’ is a song about escaping from the Christmas stress. Christmas is lovely but the period before it can be quite stressful, so we had this image of just escaping from everything, flying North with snowflakes in the eyes. We wrote it last December together with André Csernak, a Swedish musician that we’ve been writing a few songs together with on the new album. The original version had beats, but then we developed it together with Johnny Jewel into a more ambient soundscape song.”
