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

Easy choice.

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.
