Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – OCTOBER #42-22

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Emilia-Romagna, Italy Electronic /New Wave /Post-punk one-man underground project (Fka La Fuga), NOTTE “Senza te, senza me” from the first 2-track single “Chissà cos’è” a preview from the upcoming album “Dark”

Brand new nome de plume, Notte, for the one-man underground Darkwave project from Italy, who wields haunting and buzzing icy cold synth melancholy with lonesome guitar riffs, to evocatively encompass emotive spoken word vocals, delivering deep introspective esoteric poetry through an haunted yet enlightened darkness of hopelessness and dread.

  • Toulouse, French coldwave /post-punk solo project – [trait d’union] “Dans tes yeux” from the second single ‘2’

With a moody and powerfully emotional approach to the machine-driven Electro Wave sound, the enigmatic French act builds two dramatic, dense and bouncing slices of swirling gothic-tinged Coldwave through heart racing rhythm patterns, bleak undulating basslines, effected piercing guitar strains and icy bright epic synth shivers over urgent haunted and anguished breathy vocals. Earnest and poignant, somehow Coldwave has rarely been so warm.

  • Tampa/Los Angeles industrial /darkwave /dark synth wave collaboration GULF BLVD x NIGHT WOLF “Apparitions” single

Florida darkwaver teams ups with Californian ‘lone wolf’ producer to inject trancey dance-floor drive and cinematic Retro Synthwave swirling intensity through thudding marching rhythms that compel dark morbid obsessions into ominous buzzing domains, lit by dazzling and fiery synth passions, swarming, churning and shivering around cool sensual magnetic vocal confessions, promising adoration and warmth during the cold sleepless nights of Fall’s doomy omens.
