South Africa's Sulene unleashes her second single, pounding pop anthem "Haunting"

23 February 2017, 17:56 | Written by Matthew Kent

Sulene has cut her teeth as a guitarist for fun.'s Nate Ruess solo project and Betty Who, but now the singer/songwriter is now ready to share her own music and the chaotic pop of "Haunting" marks her second release.

Having grown up in South Africa, Sulene made the move to New York to pursue her music career, landing on her feet with a gig as a professional musician working with Ruess, joining his band as lead guitarist playing shows all over the world. Over that time Sulene found herself catching every minute possible, often holed up in a hotel room somewhere, to work on her own music. Now back in New York, she's preparing for the release of her debut EP.

"I wanted to write a song about all the complications that go along with letting someone go," explains Sulene. "How even when the rational decision has been made and you’re moving on, that your heart may still be playing catch-up and trying to adjust."

The distortion-fuelled "Haunting" packs a punch, especially with its angsty heartbreak lyrics - it's a classic break-up banger which would sound right at home at London's U SUCK club night alongside jams from Carly Rae Jepsen and Robyn.

"Haunting" is out now via Sleep Well Records.
