Sälen release new EP ‘Zebedy’s Cult’

It’s the soundtrack to their upcoming short film of the same name.

A couple of weeks back, Sälen released two new tracks – ‘I Am Champagne’ and ‘I’m In Love With My Best Friend’ – and teased the release of their first ever EP.

Well, ‘Zebedy’s Cult’ is here! As well as containing the previously-released tracks, it also has two more tunes, ‘Lite Behaviour’ and ‘Sweet Toothache’. Both of them are shimmering pop numbers with just more than a bit of bite. There’s a whole short film of ‘Zebedy’s Cult’, written and directed by the band, on the way too!

The band say of ‘Zebedy’s Cult’: “Zebedy’s Cult is about a flamboyant agony uncle called Zebedy. He is on call like a drug dealer, to give advice from his rickshaw. The soundtrack deals with unrequited love and addresses the promiscuity of women in a way society sadly does not. Lite Behaviour is our homage to the girls who carry condoms with them always, whilst Sweet Toothache is about sucking off an ice cream man.

“We wanted to re-release a more polished I’m In Love With My Best Friend as the original was recorded in Simon’s bedroom when Ellie wasn’t fully aware of her voice yet. I Am Champagne is one that parents can get behind with its message that you don’t need champagne and cocaine to have fun”.
