Minimal, Electro, New Wave at it’s most exciting!
SELOFAN is Fabrika/Dead Scarlet’s bestselling act after Lebanon Hanover and She Past Away. Their 2nd Album ‘Tristesse’ was released on Vinyl only on March 12 and has been sold out very fast. Here now the eagerly expected CD Version in digipak. 12 new tracks of diverse music structures and moods, which reflect the maturation of this gifted duo. Side A is of a deep romantic sensibility. Unlike their previous “Verboten” LP, though still following the synthesizer and drum machine strategies, Selofan use more instruments, the bass and saxophone playing the leading role, all put together at their home studio. This record needs “instructions for use” and you will find them on the B side. Things are not as they seem, each track reveals a completely new cosmos, a piece of classical piano music, a rhythmic tango, old school dark wave and synthpunk tracks coexist in harmony. The expressive story-telling enters the mind with caustic lyrics of existential anguish as well as the poetry of Rilke and Hesse.
