Track Of The Day #687: Sally Dige – Hard To Please

untitled (161)

Canadian artist Sally Dige emerges blinking into the sunlight with her new album Hard to Please this week. The title track sees her removing masks to reveal more of the fragile beneath, an intoxicating mix of shadowy Italian-electro-pop laced with tumbling synths and drum machine punctures: it’s the sound of early Depeche Mode in a stand-off with early Madonna in some urban dungeon. While Dige’s enigmatic, dramatic reverb-drenched vocals, brim with the ‘fuck you’ attitude of someone who has been used repeated, someone for whom being walked out on is the final insult (“I gave you everything I had/ Don’t you walk away like before.”)
