The Serfs

(Cincinnati, OH)

“The Serfs draw dark influence from a potent moment in ’70s Post Punk and New Wave, when synthesizers began to dominate the landscape and minimalism became the watchword of the day. It’s not hard to draw straight lines from The Serfs to giants of the cutting-edge synth movement of the late ’70s — Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, Cabaret Voltaire, Tubeway Army, The Units, and early Devo all surface in some form or fashion in the band’s sonic architecture. This would all be little more than genre window-dressing without good songs and the Serfs have that well covered, as their songwriting is as impressive as their apparent record collections.” – City Beat

Club Music

Club Music Vol. I is an expert concoction: EBM with a strong taste of New Beat, swirled around in one rather cavernous cauldron.

The bass lines march, evil, cold, precise, punctuated by textures so familiar they seem to burst more from the collective pop id than any vintage electronic hardware – handclaps, record scratches, whistles, delay-soaked barks, et al.

This is a vision of a dark, calculated 80’s, a vision that feels truer to the real 80’s-esque hell world we currently endure than any imagined past.

Club Music Vol. I is a satisfying manifestation of pop’s retromaniacal infinite loop…getting darker and darker with each rotation. Like the hammer and sickle glaring ambiguously from the cover, Club Music could strike you as revisionist, utopian, or something much, much grimmer.
