Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips #20

Peaks Of The Week:

  • Colombia‘s synthwave/minimal synth duo Hierba Negra & Ferdinand Cärclash – “Danse Morte”                     

Great dark synth from Colombia lately, this time a collaboration between new female artist Hierba Negra and the well known Ferdinand Cärclash with a superb, dark and twisted, instrumental minimal synth number interspersed with seductive nocturne-goth eeriness.

  • Athens-based, Turkish Post-Punk/Darkwave duo from Bursa, She Past Away “Durdu Dünya” from the new album “Disko Anksiyete”

It’s not easy nowadays to listen a whole LP of 80s inspired darkwave/post-punk with ease on repeat, the long-awaited third effort from Turkish finest sets the bar so high within the genre it will be tough do better.

  • Italian synthwave/darkwave/post-punk duo from Naples, HAPAX “Truth Or Lie” from the upcoming album “Monade” on SwissDarkNights Label

Evidently behind the sun and the smiling and positive Neapolitan nature, lurk a dark soul if the best Italian dark bands come from South of Italy’s big city. Geometric Vision, Ash Code and Hapax. Rightly the latter preview the forthcoming LP in the best possible way with a rousing epic post-punk ride that will set your soul, and helplessy your feet, on fire.
