Saturday 80s: Soft Cell - Sex Dwarf

"Sex Dwarf" by Soft Cell is a provocative and seductive synth-pop anthem that epitomizes the band's edgy and experimental sound. Released in 1981 as part of their iconic album "Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret," the song's dark, pulsating electronic beats serve as a backdrop for Marc Almond's sultry and theatrical vocals. The lyrics, with their explicit and risqué content, add a layer of subversive allure. "Sex Dwarf" remains a daring exploration of sexuality and desire, pushing boundaries with its bold sonic palette and unapologetic approach to taboo themes, solidifying Soft Cell's status as pioneers in the new wave and synth-pop genres.
