Selofan is a death-inspired love-story, a match made in heaven and hell. Since forming in the cradle of Europe back in 2012, the Athens-based duo have paved their own perditious way, reinventing the modern Dark Wave scene throughout the continent and worldwide with their prolific creativity and work ethic over the past decade. As well-known purveyors of allusive, synth-infused Cold Wave music and the driving force behind the Greek label, Fabrika Records, Selofan have followed the siren call of the 80’s goth sounds and minimalism, carving out their own spot at the forefront of independent wave music scene. The seasoned hunters are constantly digging for new dramas and passions to grace their visual intention and musical charm. The band specializes in deep, cold and racy analog sounds combined with howling vocals, well-distilled synths and heartbroken sax—which brings along the occasional shootout across genre trenches. Varied experimental synth-scapes are conjured with keen ears for sound design, production, and theatrical aesthetics. Selofan don’t just rest on their laurels earned by creating highly danceable Cold Wave infused music; together with Joanna Pavlidou’s haunting vocals, and Dimitris Pavlidis’ throbbing bass guitar, and modular synth compositions, the pair conjure whole other worlds and narratives throughout each album and music video they create. They create an unpopulated dramatic realm where sad lovers shape-shift into a destructive, obsessive, ambitious persona with a driven desire.
Over the last decade Selofan has given us six studio albums, each one of them possessing its own unique identity. Selofan avoid the comfort of settling on one sound style and continue to experiment, mixing many different music genres and languages in order to express deeply emotional, fatalistic music. Dreamy saxophone melodies find their way through strong drum machine beats, a New Wave bass riff and powerful haunting female vocals, singing or storytelling and presenting themselves in such a theatrical way, that each live performance is emotionally overwhelming.
The band’s love songs and odes to the failures and hysterias of the subculture brilliantly express the themes they’ve been exploring throughout their existence: that there is dark humor in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath—and get stronger. Their sound is intense, inflammatory and sometimes harrowing—tapping into the depths of madness: channeling a lover’s call to arms, power of self-awareness and brutal rawness of desperation, love and hate conflict, colliding into devastating effects.
HIDDEN SCARS (Luca Fucci)
Luca Fucci is an Italian artist who has been part of avant-garde electronic bands (Interferenze, Crafty Cell, BMT) for years and has carried out important collaborations with other artists (Antonio Aiazzi / ex Litfiba, Flavio Ferri / Delta V).
The need for a full self-expression led him to publish in 2015 his first instrumental solo album, “Hidden Scars”: an electronic crossover of emotions, where synthesizers, drum machines and the piano are indispensable elements through which Luca creates a dark decadent microcosm where to drive and get lost into. The careful sound shaping is not a sterile exercise, but actually a way to give voice to emotions and feelings, without any need for words.
Is a twilight jolt made by empty tunnels with wanderers inside, seeking in the night their deepest nature.
Our music is a reflection of the collective pain that dwells in the hearts of men.
Our love is the music found in the lantern of the wayfarer, the rest is plastic and iron.
We are Tommaso Leporale and Beatrice Bartolini.
