Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – JANUARY #03-23

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Athens, Greek experimental minimal darkwave solo project of Nick D., DAS NOIR “No Place We Can Hide” new single

Athenian Das Noir project’s new single instills urgent shadowy ambiances pierced by sinister chilly ethereal guitar melodies, to  open lost haunted portals over a nocturnal stream of restless stretchy bass lines and steady drum beats whilst dramatic female voice clips shatter the hypnotic realm of false safety around numb frightened vocals, suffering in the conflicting feelings of an abusive relationship with “No Place We Can Hide.”

  • Portland, OR based goth /post-punk /darkwave solo project RICHIE FILTH “Abigail” single

Spotted on Soundcloud, the latest of the earliest efforts from the North American musician, under the alias of Richie Filth, is a Post-punk/Darkwave dancing seduction with gothic overtones, enclosed in dark romantic auras, that drives steady racing rhythms, obsessive bass throbs, poignant icy bright synth swirls, and glistening guitar melodies, to sway and dance with urgent alluring passion along angsty lovelorn vocals, longing for “Abigail”, whose moody desires cause aching restless yearnings.

  • Italian darkwave /coldwave /sadwave one-man project of electronic producer known as Religius Order, Strangers For Love “Alone with my Fear” new single                                                                                 

New single from the Italian electronic DIY producer with a classic Cure-sque 80s post-punk sound steeped in introspective emotional heft, weaves through pervasive throbbing basslines, melancholic sparkling guitar echoes and poignant flashing synth melodies around lost angsty romantic vocals, longing for love amid obsessive desires.
