Steven Gullotta A wonderful blast of melancholic synthpop that straddles between a dream and reality. Favorite track: Holding On.

Chris Aldana It's more like voyeurism for me.. Her looks are a killer plus her voice can put you in a very sensual mood.

Eve McGivern I saw this come across my feed often, but skimmed this only briefly and wrote it off as "want-to-be dark synthpop." Well, it is, but this is not your average synth "pop" -- that term is doing it injustice. These are well-crafted danceable tracks with a very dark side -- songs with disturbing intensity and dark lyricism that draws you in and keeps you there, even going so far as to be -- dare I say -- catchy. I agree this will be on many 2017 Best Of lists, for good reasons. Go for it. Favorite track: Be Gone.

Cam Mannett Dark, complex, but catchy - a real rarity for music from this genre. My favourite album from the last couple of months. Favorite track: Emptiness.

about

Sally Dige is a multidisciplinary artist known for her darkly poetic yet highly danceable electro-pop songs, DIY stylistic videos, design and visual art.
Sally‘s deep and commanding voice, coupled with her analogue-visual-processes and overlapping artistic mediums has formed an identity that oscillates between the edges of aggression and fragility, old and new.

Holding On was created during the time of intense inner turmoil. Despite being stretched to her emotional limits, Sally did not let the weight of her circumstances break her, instead channeling all of her pain and fears into the production of a series of incredibly powerful songs.
Stunningly, Sally used only her voice and a single synth to create this album. Even with so little gear, the songs are anything but minimal. Each song has a minimum of 100 tracks and, for some songs, 100 tracks for just the drum section alone. Every audible sound has 20 other sounds swimming beneath it.
These are songs written for dance floors but are sung about loneliness, death and the meaninglessness of existence. Sally‘s work tows the line between a blissful innocence and a heavy darkness. Think Gina X flavored post punk-disco rubbing against Twitch-era Ministry‘s lost Sade collab or Enya on LSD after a break up.

Holding On is Sally‘s second album, following her debut Hard to Please, out on Avant! in Europe and DKA in North America, with two separate cover designs.
LP comes in printed innersleeve with lyrics.
