On their debut album So You Think You Found Love?, Austin’s Sasha & The Valentines craft a darkly romantic atmosphere that’s easy to get lost in. The group pulls from classic indie pop influences, but they’re filtered through Sarah Addi’s sharp songwriting and expressive, powerful voice. This is one of those albums that’s both fully-realized and bodes well for exciting things ahead.

This week on My KUTX, Sarah is the guest DJ. She spins an hour of the band’s favorite influences: Beach House’s swirling sound, the Modern Lovers’ driving beat, and discovering Wye Oak on a whim. Hear Sasha & The Valentines’ My KUTX on Saturday, May 29 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player above.
