An absolute treasure trove of an album, ‘5’ by SAULT is, without doubt, 2019’s best-kept secret! After being released with no fanfare back in May on the back of two earlier contagious singles, ‘We Are The Sun’ and ‘Don’t Waste My Time’, Sault set about monopolising the playlists of DJ’s like Lauren Laverne who as a result of constantly playing “Let Me Go” began a daily quest on her Radio 6 show to find more info on the covert band. Play listed on radio stations afar afield as London (Radio 6), Los Angeles (KCRW), Rostock, Germany (Radio Lohro) Nashville (X-Posure) and Grand Rapids, Michigan (WYCE Radio), with their funk, dance, soul, post-punk vibes SAULT have also infiltrated TV and can be heard on shows like You (Netflix) and Dare Me (NBC) amongst others. ‘5’ by Sault is essential listening and a shoo-in for 2019’s album of the year!
