23/08/2015, Ron SCHOONWATER

The French/German duo Dear Strange combines modern (dark) wave, electro and 80’s influences into pleasant danceable music. Let us describe their music as a succeeded combination of music from acts like Kirlian Camera and (a more electronic oriented) Diva Destruction. Well written and performed songs with a great, emotional female voice and mostly easy to the ears.

“Lonely Heroes” opens with the best that Dear Strange has to offer. The first four songs (‘The Unicorn’, ‘Lonely Heroes’, ‘Dystopia’ and ‘I Can See Through This’) sound superb with all the earlier mentioned qualities. The German sung semi-ballad ’Licht’ is a kind of turning point. Although the music stays the same, the songs start to sound as a repetition of the first four songs. Still good, but (for one reason) not as good as the first songs. In general “Lonely Heroes” is an accessible, pleasant pleasure for people who like the mentioned music directions.
