As a stable fixture in the Los Angeles underground, Sextile has been gaining a devout following since its creation in 2015. The outfit has all the makings of a revolutionary sound — boldly throwing convention out the window to create an entirely original, genre-bending imprint that combines the raw energy of 70’s punk with the intricate and sophisticated structural elements of 80’s post-punk and synthwave.
Sextile are back with new single, “Current Affair,” following up 2017’s Albeit Living. The track features vocals and lyrics written by close friend and Los Angeles native, Sienna Scarritt . Sienna declares, “Lyrically, the song addresses the regression of our (America) nation. It’s a backwards motion, a lapse in front of our eyes—happening fast. The song is a verbal refusal of getting caught in this current of delusion. It’s a plea to the world to wake up.” Those lyrics are lead by a MS-10 synth melody that you can’t get out of your head.
