London trio Sälen make songs about love and loss that sound so incredibly laid-back you almost miss the hissing passion at their center. In the synth-bubbling "Diseasey," they kicked a no-good lover out of bed to the tune of a summer pop jam, and on their latest single "The Drwg," they declare love in the breeziest of choruses: You're the drug that I'm in love with/ You're the way that I waste my time. Their approach to making a visual for the track was similarly chill. As the band told The FADER over email, "We had a £200 budget for a video so we hired an '80s BMW and shot the whole thing on our iPhones." Watch the windswept, glamor-tinged result in the player above.
