It’s been a while but Sextile have released the first new music since July last years Albeit Living, in the shape of a new single, Current Affair. It comes from ahead of ther bands first ever UK tour which starts this week. It features guest vocals from actress and friend of the and Sienna Scarritt, who says of the track “The song addresses the regression of our (America) nation. It’s a backwards motion, a lapse happening in front of our eyes – happening fast”. She adds: “The song is a verbal refusal of getting caught in this current of delusion. It’s a plea to the world to wake up”.
Its dark and almost gothic synth-pop, but there’s no doubt about it’s post-punk credentials once the vocals come in. It bubbles and slides around with attitude and more than a little menace, the bassline seemingly constantly shifting, drawing you in and making you love it.
