Selebrities - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook //

Brooklyn trio Selebrities released their debut full length 'Delusions' this week and I've been really enjoying the vintage tones blending new wave, disco-noir and post-punk influences on display throughout.

Opening with a dark tone that sounds like it could have been made in Manchester by the likes of New Order, "Delusions" and "Living Dead" both fill the air with atmospheric pop-noir sounds full of weaving guitars and a driving echoey beat.

Tracks such as (my album highlight) "Time", "Into The Night" and "Can't Make Up My Mind" show a more colourful side. A synthetic drum machine and shimmering synth beats exude an ambience that is effortlessly cool, "Into The Night" especially with it's repetitive Italo-disco beat deserves it's place in a buzzing club setting.

The nonchalant vocal delivery of Maria Usbeck which only adds to the overall flavour, the album is immediate and completely addictive.

Selebrities sound like they should be on Captured Tracks, they are not, they are on Cascine and you can order 'Delusion' now here or here digitally.
