A match made in heaven and hell, since forming in the cradle of Europe Athens, back in 2012, dark synth duo Selofan have paved their own perditious way, reinventing the modern Darkwave scene throughout the continent and worldwide with their prolific creativity and work ethic over the past decade.
Through varied experimental synth-scapes conjured with keen ears for sound design, production, and theatrical aesthetics, Selofan rest not on the laurels of just creating highly danceable coldwave infused music, but with 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.
In the Spring of 2020, Selofan released the video for the hopelessly plaintive “There Must Be Somebody”, the first single from their forthcoming sixth studio album Partners In Hell, the followup to 2018’s widely popular Vitrioli LP.
Now, Selofan have unveiled the video for the album track “Auf Deiner Haut”, which from German into English translates as “on your skin”. The song is both tactile and tenebrous with sensuously dark synth textures amidst howling German vocals that take flight like witches during a sabbat.

Partners in Hell is out digitally on October 20th, 2020, with the physical release shipping around Halloween.
