  • Danish 3-piece coldwave /darkwave band based in Aarhus, TORCH “You Will Rise (I Will Fall)” (Single)

Danish trio weave haunted echoing sharp dimensions of bleak darkwave duskiness, swaying desperately between tersely tinkling, solemn guitar melodies and dramatic synth strains around powerful, haughty gripping male vocals cutting through an achingly emotional dichotomy of stark, desolate exhalations of doom with urgent emotional croons to form an impassioned tide of fatal tragedy.

  • Chilean post-punk /synth-punk /electronic duo from Santiago, 3V3C3S3 “Ciudad Ninja” second single         

Chilean fully synthetic duo deliver their second dizzying slab of dark disco-latinwave into a paranoid-inducing modern dystopic hell of obsessive news voice samples, dire buzzing bassline, warbling, rolling crisp percussive rhythms, and sinister creeping synth melodies, swirling wickedly around excruciating, painfilled male vocals howling in harsh, distressing pain, with gritty backup echoes, to sway haphazardly on the abyss of a generation.

  • Sidney, Australia lo-fi goth /post-punk /darkwave solo project Chlorine Gargoyle “Ruin” (Single)

Laced with compelling evocative lyrics, Australian DIY goth churns out a vintage synth-induced gloomy and barren dark aura, both enveloping and disturbing, made of quick pulsing, humming bass rarefactions, icy bright doleful synth chimes and scattered beats to smother morose detached male vocals and primal grunts with down and out desperate digressions of apocalyptic “Ruin”.
