Scarlet Pleasure have well and truly conquered Denmark. In 2017 they have seen singles go Platinum, while their Gold-certified EP, ‘Limbo’, has been in the Top 10 for 22 weeks, they are the most played Danish act on radio and recently won both Song and Group of the Year at the Danish Music Awards.

But with their new single ‘Unreliable’, we here at Born would like to see Scarlet Pleasure take on the world. Taken from their new (and unexpectedly released EP) Lagune ,out today, it is a juicy, electro-pop classic. Mixing the band’s classic reggae infused tones, ‘Unreliable’ indulges in greater electronic experimentation and makes use of the sexed up, neo-soul sounds the likes of Nite Swim have found success with this year.

Scarlet Pleasure have released one album and three EPs and they make that experience show on this track. The mix is well balanced, the harmonies interesting but not unapproachable and the track itself; set to be a worldwide smash.
