Darkwave Act Selfishadows Weave Melancholic Catharsis in their single from “Again”

over their sins they draw/we’ll call her/destroying her/believing

Daniele Giustra felt the call to create a new song form. This ambition and clear mission to discover musical innovation led to his forming the darkwave project SELFISHADOWS in 2007, where stillness “serves as a movement expression,” he explains.

Giustra’s clever blend of brand new and vintage synthesizers, lyrics, and electronic drums carves out a sort of pathos-drenched, atmospheric krautpop. Hovering in the liminal space ‘twixt wave and glitch, SELFISHADOWS’ sound pursuit submits to the natural disposition for a “therapeutic”, dry, minimal croon.

This untitled single comes off the 2020 album Again (Manic Depression Records), out on the 5th of December. The accompanying video was directed by Fabio Cieli and edited by Daniele Giustra: its vintage appeal comes from the old analogue camcorder used to film.

SELFISHADOWS dwells the houses of cloudy and muffled ambiance with Again and blesses the dance floor with “dreadful efficiency” in Illusion. In this effort, SELFISHADOWS’ waves finally muddy into a soothing grey; his tense, flush light allows a glimpse under his dark hood, his warm voice embracing us with comforting melancholy.

A beautiful track to unwind to in the gloom of early winter.

Watch the video below:
