Sulene faces past addictions on new single “photo booth”

“A near-perfect encapsulation of the ’80s synth-pop ethos, with its cool, languid beat, irresistible hooks, and absolutely massive choruses – and made all the more so by her sly vocal aplomb” – BlackBook Magazine

Today, South African born, Brooklyn-based artist Sulene shared her dance-ready new single “photo booth” alongside an accompanying video. The release coincides with the announcement of her upcoming EP, he•don•ic, due out March 5th via Trash Casual. On the synth-driven “photo booth”, Sulene explores the discord of returning to a bad habit even though it’s pulling you down. The song sounds like it’s about a relationship, but is actually centered around her struggles with alcohol addiction and experiencing stigmatic social pressures. The video for the song finds Sulene surrounded by neon lights, singing directly into the camera as she confronts her past.
