It's not all about music anymore...



denitia and sene

First came across lo-fi electro duo denitia and sene in September last year when I heard “side fx” from their EP with the same name. Brooklyn-based, synth-heavy pop it’s effortless, smooth and infectious… if they were still making “Gossip Girl”… Continue Reading →
