Sulene makes being an artist look ‘Easy’
Location: New York
FFO: Cape Francis, Charles Fauna
Label: Sleep Well Records
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Sulene van der Walt is also known as the lead guitarist for Nate Reuss (of fun.) and her guitar playing has been heard everywhere from DIY clubs in Brooklyn to the East Room of the White House. With an already impressive repertoire (her voice has also been featured in films and TV shows, ranging from Halle Berry shower scenes to Al Pacino stage-diving), Sulene combines her songwriting and film composing styles together in the ‘reimagining’ of her track ‘Easy’.
Feauturing string-quartet-soaked ambient instrumentals and powerful, floating vocals, the track is a confident release from the songwriter and composer that it is both haunting and beautiful; a classic love ballad fused with dark electro pop.
