Formed 10 years ago in Taipei, Sunset Rollercoaster have become stars in their home country over the past decade. They’re a rare English-singing Taiwanese band in a field dominated by Mando-pop ballads who have been experimenting with different styles throughout their career — recently landing on a cool and breezy psych-pop sound on their new EP, VANILLA VILLA. Their exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is an ideal late-night cool-out session as they casually spotlight some of their favorite songs in the psych, pop, and soul realm that have undoubtedly inspired their own chill and laidback music.
