The Spanish Aura Noctis brings us melancholy neofolk / darkwave. This EP is a bit short to assess this band but these three songs already give a clear idea what this band stands for.

The EP opens with "Breaking Thoughts". Repetitive piano, cello and high ethereal voices create a beautiful melancholy, a deep sad feeling that undersigned often can appreciate in music.

During the second song, "Progresiva", the cellist Pilar plays an amazingly beautiful main role where the repetitive piano creates the perfect accompaniment to a wonderful instrumental.

The third and final song of the disc is the slow "Zweite Reise". This time pianist Olga may pull out all the stops. The synths and strings form the perfect soundscape. Again it is a gloomy black gem.

Three numbers is unfortunately too few to really get to know the band, although this is a very strong EP. I really look forward to the full length album, on their website announced as “coming soon”.

A recommendation for neofolk / darkwave fans and an extra name in my booklet "bands to follow".

Het Spaanse Aura Noctis brengt melancholische neofolk/darkwave. Deze EP is een beetje kort om de groep te beoordelen, maar geeft met haar 3 songs wel al een goed beeld.

Het schijfje opent met “Breaking Thoughts”. Repetitieve piano, cello & hoge etherische stemmen creëren een mooie weemoed, een diep intriest gevoel dat ondergetekende vaak kan appreciëren in muziek.

Tijdens het tweede nummer, “Progresiva”, mag de celliste Pilar alles uit de kast halen waarbij het repetitieve pianospel voor de perfecte begeleiding zorgt in een supermooie instrumental.

Het derde en laatste nummer van het schijfje is het trage “Zweite Reise”. Ditmaal mag pianiste Olga alle registers opentrekken en zorgen synthesizers en strijkers voor de perfecte begeleiding. Ook hier weer is een zwarte mistroostige parel ons deel.

Drie nummers is helaas een beetje weinig. Weliswaar een zeer sterke EP maar ik kijk toch uit naar de volwaardige langspeler, die op hun website voor binnenkort wordt genoteerd.

Een mooie aanrader voor neofolk/darkwave fans, en een naam extra in mijn boekje “bands to follow”.
