Formed in Malmö late 2015, SEKEL presents us
with an unwavering, hypnotic post-punk.
Their obsessive melodies and impenetrable soundscapes
detains you in a contagious cluster of noise that reminds us
that nothing really escapes the monotonous and vile.
The group has supported bands such as Föllakzoid, Exploded View,
K-X-P, Les Big Byrd and Swedish psych golems Dungen.
Releases include 7" debut EP on Malmö-based Rundgång Rekords,
and S/T debut album on Fuzz Club Records.
`In this universe, the pitfalls of traditional genres doesn´t exist.
Instead, one is reminded of future-thinking rock groups
experimenting with new possibilities of electronic music in
the 60’s and 70’s. Mono-synths and hefty pads are
mixed together with expressive drums where structure meets passion,
thoughtful melodies merge with epic rock soundscapes. It’s as
uncompromising as it is refreshing in a world where everything
is divided and labeled.
Jonas Pedersen and Magnus Borgkvist Johansson have been
preparing for this moment for a decade. Being best friends,
they’ve relentlessly been trying to weld into one.
Until now. With SOLAR, the duo has cut
the Gordian knot and created a new universe from scratch.`
