SALES jumped into my indie rock playlist in 2016 with the release of their self-titled debut LP. They’re the kind of band that I could listen to while casually doing homework, because the beats and vocals are just soft enough to be chill but also still upbeat enough to be considered rock music. SALES is the epitome of coffee-table-wine-on-a-Wednesday-night type of music.
According to their bio on Spotify, SALES is described as “[creating] low-key but engaging music that marries lo-fi sensibility to a spare but evocative melodic approach.” The dynamic duo consists of Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih, who (anecdote) first met when they took the same Latin class in high school. Who ever said Latin is a dead language? By listening to their music, I get the feeling that the two of them are very much on the same page; perhaps, they have an inseparable musical bond.
