Finger Playlist: Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne

were one of the bands that helped define the indie dance genre in the early 1990s, fusing the production values of the dance-pop that emerged in the wake of the Second Summer of Love with the clever lyrics and self-aware production of indie music. A decade after the band's formation, The Times observed that Saint Etienne «deftly fused the grooviness of Swining 60s London» with a post-acid house backbeat».
