“He Keeps Me Alive” by Sally Shapiro

BoxSpeaker heard of Sally Shapiro through the ever-cool Jamie H.

Sally Shapiro is an italo disco duo that sounds like the vocals of a faster, happier Au Revoir Simone with the italo disco high-hats and synth beats.

“He Keeps Me Alive” is another one of those electro tracks that has such a happy beat but actually has somewhat sad lyrics. With its happy synths and high-hats juxtaposed by sad lyrics of “remember[ing] we’re just friends.”
