Soulful, female-led group Say She She stand rock solid on their disco-delic duty with the release of their boundary-breaking sophomore album Silver (September 2023 on Colemine/Karma Chief Records).

Described as “a glorious overload of joyful elation and spiritual elevation” (MOJO) and “infused with the wonky post-disco spirit of early 80s NYC” (The Guardian), the band consistently tops the radio charts of tastemaker stations KCRW and KEXP, as well as BBC’s Radio 6 Music. Sold out shows from London to Los Angeles and televised appearances on CBS Saturday and Later…with Jools Holland testify to a rapidly growing fan base. Say She She has toured with the likes of Thee Sacred Souls and have already played iconic festivals such as Glastonbury and Central Park Summerstage.

Fronting the band are the strong voices of Piya Malik (El Michels Affair, Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham, and Nya Gazelle Brown (hailing, respectively, from London, NYC, and DC). All were lured, by the NYC siren song, to Manhattan’s downtown dance floors, through the Lower East Side floorboards, and up to the rooftops of Harlem, where their friendship was formed on one momentous, kismet evening.

Silver was techniques, rooting Say She She’s sound in a bedrock of tonal warmth, combined with their process of cutting the track in the moment (to capture the magic of communal creativity) that has critics reeling. Musical inspirations include Rotary Connection, Asha Puthli, Liquid Liquid, Grace Jones, and Tom Tom Club.

Say She She fully embraces their role as beauticians and what it means to be a modern femme, actively reminding people of the inherent beauty in the world.
