Los Angeles new wave/post punk/synth pop duo Sacred Skin (aka Brian Tarney and Brian DaMert FKA Second Skin) have premiered their new single "Circles".
The song is taken from their upcoming debut album 'The Decline of Pleasure', set to be released on May 27 via NYC label Synthicide. Pre-order your copy here.
Formed in the Spring of 2020 by friends Brian Tarney and Brian DaMert, Sacred Skin balances between new wave heartthrob royalty—akin to Talk Talk or The Fixx—and glittering, emotional post-punk.
With its dreamy new wave structures and DaMert’s vocals induced with loss and longing, the album is unlike any other released so far in 2022. Their use of vintage gear, namely the Sequential Prophet VS and the EMU Emulator II, retains a vintage, yet polished, studio feel that is unique to their style alone.
The Decline of Pleasure brims with hope and brings the listener back to a more innocent and carefree experience, as we boldly move forward from the era of isolation.
Take a listen below.
