Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – MARCH #13-22

  • Stockholm, Sweden EBM /industrial /minimal synth solo project Svaj. “Still Standing” limited edition lathe cut 7″ vinyl single

Swedish solo project is fresh from the release of his first EP “Rewind” that spawns mechanically and hypnotically pulsating frigid slabs of densely tight, sneakingly compelling, at times perversely danceable EBM-inflexed minimal synth-driven sound. The extrapolated cold and stark new single, “Still Standing”, ignites a reiterated, both droning and throbbing menacing bass sequence, oppressive marching martial beats and striking synth zaps around fearful, stoic male vocals and shivering screams, to unleash anxiety, dread, and passive resistance onto an overpowering regime of misery.

  • Detroit, Mi electronic /darkwave /deathgaze duo VAZUM “Thief” (Single).

Motor City‘s deathgaze duo’s new single infuses doomy nocturnal vibes seared by pain-filled layers of John McGeoch-like ethereal guitar needlings, ominous cavernous basslines and evocative, shivering female vocals to forge desperate isolation and obsessive vows into a hot bleeding tragedy of aching dread. Check the beat-driven remix on the flip, wavering with dancing gothic vibes.

  • Paris based French noise rock /post-punk /coldwave trio VERSARI “Terror Couple Kill Colonel” (1980) from upcoming V/A “HONORIS III TRIBUTE TO BAUHAUS” on Unknown Pleasures Records

Following the impassionated and successful tributes by the independent label Unknown Pleasures Records to iconic bands such as Death In June and Sister Of Mercy tributes, here is the third ‘HONORIS’ dedicated to Northampton‘s gothic finest Bauhaus. Parisian post-punkers Versari deftly remakes Bauhaus1980 classic single, “Terror Couple Kill Colonel”, departing from the original off-kilter, immersive and brooding deadly vibes by bringing energy-charged ringing and electrifying guitar-laden textures that sparkle, seethe and blare like sirens throughout, screeching and barbing along with lashing and abrasive blowing progressions from high-pitched chaotic saxophone blasts surrounding the angst and trauma of restless howls, submerged screams and tortured moaning vocals, into the historical narrative about he infamous Baader-Meinhof gang’s deadliest terrorist attack in 1972.
