HiFi Sean is the indie hero who became a dance voyager, an electronic artist whose willingness to collaborate has left his music wide open.
Drawn into the orbit of David McAlmont – a mercurial vocalist, and perhaps one of his generation’s finest voices – the two sculpted an album together, with sessions for ‘Happy Ending’ taking place at the top of an East London tower block.
