Azar Swan - Savage Exile

Formerly the core members of orchestral goth project Religious To Damn, Zohra Atash and Joshua Strawn turn their once instrumental ensemble into a sprawling electro-encased duo whose narrative is framed by noise and driven by drum machine.

Industrial Pop: Two parts hard percussion and shimmering ambience, and one part majestic yet pointed vocals. The shift was sparked by a two-fold realization from Atash and Strawn who were looking to consolidate the writing process by eliminating the unnecessary weight that comes with coordinating multiple musicians, combined with a mutual revived interest in electronic music and hip-hop beats.

Die Selektion -  Deine Stimme Ist Der Ursprung Jeglicher Gewalt

“The new innocence”, DIE SELEKTION’s self description, is the first of many enthralling contradictions raised by the young band. Fast beats, cutting bass lines, bleak and subcooled synth layers, and then – the most unusual instrument for this genre: The trumpet. The plain brilliancy of how this works out leads to one question only: Why has no one done this before?

It doesn’t happen often that a new, young act finds such a good reception like these fledging boys from Southern Germany. Already their very first demos caused a lot of attention and euphoria – a rare achievement in nowadays “dark scene”. Ever since “Du Rennst”, their first dancefloor hit in the clubs, DIE SELEKTION is a breath of fresh air in the dusty and often narrow minded world of dark electronic music. Maybe their youth is the secret to their self confidence and fearless approach, they overcame their idols easily and present the best possible emancipation from giant groups like DAF, NITZER EBB or DIE KRUPPS.
