Selkirk – ‘Pale New World’

Dirty, well-worn electronic punk

If the thought of Marilyn Manson and Lemmy getting down and dirty on The Knife arouses your musical organs, then read on. Selkirk’s ‘Pale New World’ might just be for you.

Earthy, well-worn vocals make a nice addition to some feral drums and fuzzy synths. It’s a strange combination that, at the very best, is unapproachably abrasive. And sometimes, that’s exactly what you need and want in a track.

Selkirk’s ‘Pale New World’ is the other end of the musical solar system to the clean-cut, polished electropop that dominates the mainstream. It’s the dirty, brutal punk of the electro-edged musical world. It’s different in every possible sense, allowing the band to forcefully carve their own distinct identity into the stone of music.
