Sextile Deliver Wake-Up Call In the Form of New “Current Affair” Single

Premiere

While Sextile may call their caustic sound “primitive post-punk from outer space,” the LA band’s new “Current Affair” single is decidedly grounded—a call to arms in a country that appears to be going down fast. Sing alongside the track’s lyric video and the group’s Felte back catalogue below. And in case you’re curious, guest singer Sienna Scarritt had this to say….

Lyrically, the song addresses the regression of our (American) 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.
