V11 X Nospray Presents: The Serfs + Dear Omens
Emerging like a missile from some surreptitious silo in southwestern Ohio, The Serfs are a deliberately nebulous and incidentally industrialist gang of dance-floor hymners– perturbed and tranced-out troubadours whose sound and musical ideology seems to be a causal manifestation of their immediate environments–hard-wired and hypnotic synthesized melodies propel alongside churning and scraping percussion of every metallic tonality–with temperamental and eremitic words and voices dictating the forlorn venture. Like their Ohio predecessors, The Serfs seem askew from the art that surrounds them, and proud of it.
Heavy-hearted post-punk from Amsterdam. Dear Omens clashes and melts organ with drums and vocals taking us back to the heydays of Blondie and Siouxie and the Banshees, adding a timely dream-poppy experience. Illustrious in the underground, you might recognize some members from Pauper, Temple Fang and Death Alley.
