Post-punk duo SDH have shared the video for Tell Them, which is lifted from their debut 3-track synth-wave/industrial themed EP ‘Tell Them’ that’s out now via Italian cult label Avant! Records. Check it out via YouTube below.
This is the new project of two key figures of the synth-wave/industrial scene of Barcelona. Andrea P. Latorre and Sergi Algiz, founders of the C¯njunt¯ VacÌ¯ label and also in the post-punk band Wind Atlas, unveil a new act more oriented towards pop music.
They detail the EP: “Apart from the single Tell Them, which will be part of our first album, the EP contains two of the first songs we composed as SDH, Abandon and Blind Guide. These two songs were recorded in the same session as the rest of the album but they were left out because we wanted to make a shorter album. It was not initially conceived as an EP, but we think it shows well the two faces of the group, one darker, direct and danceable and another more delicate. About BLIND GUIDE. Against the absolute category of truth. The road is not drawn, it does not even exist. About ABANDON. Is the possibility of fictitious love between two people authentic? Is it full the space between what is projected and what is understood as real?”
SDH is change, alteration, distortion, metamorphosis. Their synth-pop songs, sprinkled with EBM and techno, are mysterious, obtuse and suggestive. The project seems to revolve around the idea of fiction. What is the language of feigned personalities? What is fiction? An individual is one and another, is liquid. It is physical. Incarnating someone is doing it in a corporeal way: making it flesh. Conceive: everything is real: reality does not exist. How is a fiction embodied?
With only two songs published, they have already supported artists such as Marie Davidson and Merchandise and performed at the Swedish festival Kalabalik PÂ Tyrolen, one of the reference festivals of the darkwave scene.
Debut, self-titled full-length album will be released via Avant! as well in May 2018.
