Sextile release new video 'Disco' and EP '3' on Felte
Sextile is currently on tour in Europe and will be performing at Desert Daze festival in Moreno Valley, CA next month
L.A. punk/EBM band Sextile have released their new video and track Disco, from their EP 3, which was released on Friday via Felte. Sextile is currently on tour in Europe and will be performing at Desert Daze festival in Moreno Valley, CA next month.
Sextile self-directed the video and explain the intention of the song and the video. “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.”
Since forming in 2015, Sextile has gained a devout following thanks to the energy of their live shows and non-stop touring. The 3 EP follows up their 2017 album Albeit Living and early 2018's Current Affair single.
After numerous lineup changes, the now two-piece comprising Brady Keehn and Melissa Scaduto have shifted toward a minimalist approach. Now favoring synths over guitars, they haven't thrown out the strings completely. 3 was recorded in Los Angeles in their home and practice space using a KORG MS-10, a sequencer, a Fender Stratocaster, a LinnDrum, and various percussion instruments.
Finding inspiration in futurist writer Luigi Russolo's The Art of Noises, the pair employs a sonic palette that mirrors the chaos of the modern industrial era. While the appropriately titled Disco is a club-worthy opener, Spun delivers the signature Sextile sound with rowdy, squealing guitars. Last week, the band shared the video for the EP's frenzied center-piece, Paradox.
