The Future’s Here Today: Say She She

Now this is something potentially incredible. A female -led seven piece band from Brooklyn, Say She She fuse the sass of Luscious Jackson with the rhythms of ESG and the ethereal fluttering harmonies of Cocteau Twins.

Three amazing singers- Nya Gazelle Brown, Priya Malik and Sabrina Mileo Cunningham- make up said harmonies, and the rest of the band is made up of musicians from Twin Shadow and The Frightenrs, among others. They’re kind of a collective.

It’s the most original thing I’ve heard in ages. Forget Me Not is the debut single and what a beautiful thing it is too. It’s funky, but it’s almost airborne too.

Thanks to Tom Ravenscroft on BBC6 Music for introducing me to one of the singles of the year. If they produce an album half as good, we’re in for something truly special.

  1. You’re right, it’s funky and they have good harmonization. I got goosebumps on the intro: ohh ohh ohh ehhh ehhh ihhihihi. Well, I don’t know how to right it down! 😁😁😁 Thumbs up!
