12/01/2014, Filip VAN MUYLEM

With a nice retro sound and a lovely voice it resembles to The Cranes & Chelsea Wolfe versus The Cure ('17 Seconds'-period). Sometimes it sounds as if the studio could have done a better mixing or recording job, but maybe it was meant this way as it's all very retro? It's also very clear that the New York Scene is very active in this niche, so thumbs up for that scene to keep this sound alive!

Nice songs to remember are: 'To Die A Thousand Romantic Deaths' (only for the title, the wall of sound and the nice synth), 'My Eyes Are Closed When The Sun Comes Up' (nice retro The Cure sound coming from demo tapes versus The Cranes and a nice bass), 'Vacant' (because of the dream pop sound of this song) & 'Killer behind those masks' (the voice is a bit distorted and the wall of sound reminds me of some unknown track from The Cure: 'All I had to do is kill here', with a nice bass line). This song also reminds me somehow of 'Demons' from Chelsea Wolfe.

I could call this one retro dream pop Wave, but I'll let you decide...

Judge for yourself on their bandcamp page:
