The San Fran trio see in Valentine's Day.
"Sammy on vocals. Mikey on laptop. Ryan on keys. The lineup alone should tell you that San Francisco's PillowTalk do things a little differently." This is how we introduced PillowTalk back in December upon their #11 entry in our top live acts poll. The position reflected a year in which the trio went from an up-and-coming US act in to a globally in-demand force, playing upwards of 70 shows across five continents. Their trademark spin on traditional club music has been the driving force behind this ascent. R&B, disco, soul and boogie mesh with house music in vein of the Wolf + Lamb and Life and Death labels, both of whom have released their music.
"Something old and something new" is the vibe on PillowTalk's Valentines mix for us; this is music for lovers, shot through with a modern dance floor pulse.
