DANCER VS POLITICIAN is Sanni Baumgaertner, a Berlin native who has made a home for herself in Athens, Georgia, USA for the past 10 years. She moved to Athens in the late 90s, where she started performing in different bands around the Southeast. Sanni plays accordion, guitar, and musical saw. Produced by Matt Yelton (The Pixies, Frank Black), Andy Baker (The Glands, Azure Ray, Shannon Wright).
Influenced by Nico/The Velvet Underground, Belle & Sebastian, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sanni’s sound moves between lush arrangements of strings, horns, glockenspiel, clarinet, musical saw, layered with electronic undertones and vintage keyboards.
Dancer Vs Politician are gathering a following in the USA where they recently completed a radio PR deal with Team Clermont (Lonely, Dear, R.E.M.), as well as being invited to play at this year’s SXSW festival. Excellent press reviews and solid radio play, along with numerous tour dates across The States have ensured that Dancer Vs Politician are one to watch. This trend is set to continue in the UK and Europe with features in The National Student already planned.
