"Whenever someone shares a single with a band as exalted as The Ex, it’s tempting to think that they’re being given a hand up. But no one is being indulged on this split release. Selvhenter is an all-female quintet from Denmark, and if all their music is as strong as this tune, we all have some homework to do. The notion behind “New Age” is quite simple, but the kind of simplicity that spins you down into a vortex where you might get lost for a long time. Twin drums keep up a simmering groove while effects-obscured violin and horns squeeze out one echoing burp after another, turning said groove into a vertiginous maelstrom of jostling rhythms. The Ex’s side will be known to anyone who caught them on their recent US tour. “From The Top Of My Lungs” is the song where Kat Bornefeld steps out from behind the drums, hefts shakers, and sings. Suspended over the interlocking patterns of three guitars playing riffs jagged enough to tear your coat sleeve from shoulder to cuff, her anthem makes you feel like whatever you have been doing with your life is not enough, but there’s still time for redemption."
