Atlanta, GA post punk band CDSM celebrate Halloween with new single “DOM”, and its accompanying video.
DOM is a beautifully jagged new wave supernova about failed relationships and love lost. Opening with gloomy John Carpenter-esque soundscapes, later shifting into a manic amalgamation of synthesizers that could dizzy Brian Eno, this absolute gem of a groover shall have all the costumed freaks popping and locking til dawn.
The song is out now via Mothland and EXAG. Get it here and watch the Ben Presley & Sebastian Aguilar-directed video below.
As the sun sets on an ever-heating planet, strange synthesizers converse in the distance, punctured by disco rhythms and interjected by saxophone growls, akin to a jukebox of divine sadistic temptations, oozing goth rock-esque melodies that forever haunt you… You have just been exposed to the groovy sonic onslaught of CSDM (aka Celebrity Death Slot Machine).
CDSM features current and former members of alternative outfits: Material Girls, Neighbor Lady, Mothers and Rose Hotel.
The band’s debut EP Hell Stairs (2022) was both glamorous and bleak, swanky and derelict, uplifting and crushing, described by the band as “hedonism clinking in your glass, change jingling in the pit of your chest.” Following the release of “GOGO”, the band spent this year on the road playing all over North America and Europe.
