MINIMAL WAVE/SYNTH

Nun – Evoke The Sleep (Official Video)

NUN manages to convince with their first release, with a very good use of synths and electronic sounds and beats. The vocals are definitely a good point: used with different styles throughout the album and totally uninhibited. For lovers of new wave, minimal wave and 80’s atmospheres, as the album is full of 80’s references… Keep Reading

OTHER/SYNTH

Captain Heroin – Inhuman

Well, I have to say that this is NOT Gothic Rock; this one is for the adventurous ears and open-minded listeners who can appreciate to this exotic, cinematic, futuristic, (sometimes) abstract, and experimental experience. Captain Heroine works with synths and atmospheres in a very arty and experimental way; this artist called Fredrik Willberg from Helsinki,… Keep Reading

Night Sins – To London Or The Lake

Night Sins is back only a year after the release of their first album, to present their new LP on Avant!

The KVB – Out of Body

Formed in 2010 as a shoe-gaze/minimal electro duo, Nicholas Wood and Kat Day have left deep impressions on the moody psyche of modern music, reviving the shoe-gaze genre of the early 90’s. The dreamy corridors of the Out of Body EP are riddled with dark corners of melancholic, romantic passageways. The first track All Around… Keep Reading

MINIMAL WAVE/SYNTH

Three Winters – Chroma

Last year we published the review of the previous work of Three Winters; “Atrocities” and I gladly received this electro-atmospheric sound of theirs, because it is very interesting and entrancing. Back then I described their sound as: Retro-futuristic, Cinematic Synth-Wave. I have to say that “retro” is because this music made me think about the… Keep Reading

Qual – Sable

Qual is the solo project of bassist and co-vocalist William Morris of the phenomenal group Lebanon Hanover. To begin with, let me point out that this album is just Gothic (with a capital G) as FUCK in terms of subject matter, execution, and composition. These elements may do little to persuade purists who would view… Keep Reading

The Woken Trees – NNON

What is it nowadays about the sublime Goth/Post punk of Scandinavia, which just seems to go from strength to strength?. With NNON by the Copenhagen based sextet The Woken Trees, we have an almost perfect example of how bleak meets raw power. From the opening bars of the thundering opener “Orders” to the fading out of… Keep Reading
