Selebrities "When I Look At You"

The music of Brooklyn-based trio Selebrities has as much future-funk growl as someone like Space Dimension Controller and yet plainly lurking in the background is are the hollow guitars of Joy Division and New Order. Out later this month is the follow-up to Selebrities' debut EP, Ladies Man Effect (a conceit as much as it is a title), a 7" titled "We've Been Foolish" that features the b-side we have here, "When I Look At You." Singer Maria Usbeck sounds like she's whispering from an '80s-era downtown New York alley while the Grandmaster Flash classic "The Message" is blowing in from the Bronx up north.
