Heather Holiday Loves When Saints Go Machine
Heather Holiday tells Nightdrive:
“I first fell in love with WSGM (When Saints Go Machine) when I came across their 2008 single Kids On Vacation. Not sure if it was the Anthony Hegarty-esque vocals, Prince-like falsettos or Depeche Mode influence, which you can also hear on “Fail Forever” or my favorite,”You or the Gang.” All their songs embody a sensual 80’s synth style with romantic symphonic melodies mixed with vocal bumps, frisky bass lines and a serious infectious rhythm. These Copenhagen natives are a league of their own, which I find brilliant.
Silas Moldenhawer, Jonas Kenton, Simon Muschinsky and Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild formed in 2007, influenced by a diverse group of artists such as Matthew Herbert, The Beach Boys, Morrissey and Moloko, to name a few. In 2009, the electro-synth-pop act released its debut album Ten Makes a Face,which is a compilation of all the songs they’ve written and produced, mixed by their friend Christoffer Berg (The Knife, Fever Ray). Unfortunately, it’s not available yet in the states, but you get a nice bunch here for FREE. I’ve also added a good club romper remix from one of their selected DJ/producer friends-Zombie Disco Squad. Download precaution: You might fall in love too.”
