I hate the term New Wave, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist. If you ever meet me in real life, buy me a beer and I’ll give you my ‘new wave rant’.
However, if there is a band for who the term (begrudgingly) fits it’s Brooklyn’s pretty awesome New Wave act Selebrities who have a new 12” on the horizon. They are just that right combination of Post-Punk and SynthPop that New Wave is supposed to be.
The new single,‘We’ve Been Foolish’/’When I Look At You’, sees more of their really authentically 80’s sounding tunes that mash up influences from New Order to Bauhaus to Kim Wilde. All this is complimented so well by Maria Usbeck’s ability to vocally slip in and out of the track.
‘We’ve Boon Foolish’/’When I Look At You’ is released 23rd November on Cascine.
