* Sonically, The Serfs reveal themselves to be a powerful and evocative Coldwave outfit. They released a debut EP, Songs of Serfdom, early in 2019 and that six-song cassette has now been expanded to a full 11-track album and re-titled Sounds of Serfdom. The LP is being released on 12-inch vinyl through Berlin, Germany label Detriti Records.
The Serfs draw dark influence from a potent moment in ’70s Post Punk and New Wave, when synthesizers began to dominate the landscape and minimalism became the watchword of the day. It’s not hard to draw straight lines from The Serfs to giants of the cutting-edge synth movement of the late ’70s — Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, Cabaret Voltaire, Tubeway Army, The Units and early Devo all surface in some form or fashion in the band’s sonic architecture. This would all be little more than genre window-dressing without good songs and the Serfs have that well covered, as their songwriting is as impressive as their apparent record collections. *Taken from citybeat.com
