OKBadlands get pumped for #PS11 with their ultimate birthday playlist
Brisbane darlings OKBADLANDS create some of the most serene and beautiful music we’ve heard in recent times. With an EP behind them released earlier this year which included production credits from GOLDEN VESSEL as well as both members of OKBadlands (Kate Gurren and Sally Latter), who self-produced, recorded, and arranged the tracks, the duo are quickly picking up speed. Currently on tour supporting CLOUD CONTROL, and having played some notable shows around their hometown, the duo are a mesmerising and unstoppable force, and their dreamy tracks are responsible for their rapidly growing and loyal fanbase.
We definitely count ourselves in that fanbase, so we were so excited to have them on board to help up celebrate our Eleventh Birthday as part of Vivid Music 2017 on June 17th. To get to know the pair a little better, as well as to get us extra excited for our birthday, we asked them to put together their ultimate playlist of birthday and party tracks. Check it out below, and catch them at Purple Sneakers Eleventh Birthday.
Best To You – Blood Orange
For the dance floor.
Why iii Love The Moon – Phony Ppl
One of our favourites because it’s attached to good memories. Reminds us of new beginnings.
Cuffed – Nick Hakim
Always singing Nick Hakim’s praises.
Fingerprints – Hiatus Kaiyote
Marinated overnight in wine and spices.
Brokeup – Arca
One of the earlier songs from a producer we’ve been into lately.
Death Spiral – Dirty Projectors
This album is on high-high rotation at the moment so probably couldn’t be avoided if it was one of our parties.
Take on Me – A-Ha
Obnoxious but fantastic (a Kate party).
Mythological Beauty – Big Thief
Melancholy and contemplative (a Sally party).
So Far To Go – J Dilla
Fifty-Fifty Clown – Cocteau Twins
Into the movement and Elizabeth Fraser’s vocals on this track.
Girl Like You – Toro y Moi
For the five people sprawled on the lounge at 4am.
