Every country interpreted punk in their own way.
Less of a sound and more of an approach, an idea, punk's dissemination led to the flowering of dark deviants genres from Los Angeles to Singapore, Iceland to West Africa.
LA synth-punk group Sextile dip their toes into West Germany's post-punk heritage on brittle new burner 'Disco', a piece of sub-zero sensuality rendered in a digital format.
New EP '3' is out now, and with Sextile packing their cases for a short European run we're able to share a filthy video from the American group.
Shot in bold monochrome, the minimalist feel of 'Disco' is designed to echo the New German Wave genre, a stylish, pared down accompaniment for Sextile's confrontational yet stylish music.
The pair comment: “We definitely feel this song is a new direction for us. It’s tough, it’s dancy. The lyrics focus on lack of time, DIY spaces getting shut down, gun control, and media propaganda. Visually and aesthetically, the video was influenced by the NDW (Neue Deutsche Welle/New German Wave) genre.”
Tune in now.
