Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – July #28-21

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
   

  • Australian Deathrock /Post-Punk band from Melbourne, TRANSITIONS “Silence and Shame” from the EP “After Dark”

Melbourne quartet finally unleash their long-awaited 4-tracker of all and out classic, solid and solemn dark post-punk, intense, passionate and enfolding, without ever losing immediacy, interspersed with atmospheric and introspective moments, amidst a rhythmic section as solid as it is unstoppable, along dense and threatening, as they are agile and melodic basslines, and stabbing guitar riffs, swept by The Sound-like hypnotic icy bright synth wanderings, with the vocal always grasping the evocative and vibrant emotional thread, seamlessly keeping the dramatic tension on the rope.

  • Zaporizhzhya, Ukraine coldwave /post-punk trio The Last Passenger “Не заважай” new single

An urgent, dramatic and hypnotic post-punk-meets-coldwave from Ukrainian trio, laced with mechanical rhythms, poignant, obsessive guitar riffs, ominous serpentine bassline and eerie synth swaths, whilst curt, distressing baritone vocals issue dastardly insinuations and agitated rejections into the disconnected turbulence of pain.

  • Bryansk/Moscow, Russian coldwave /post-punk duo Predznanie “Мёртвые внутри /Dead inside” new single

Russian duo unveils a gripping and atmospheric new single haunted by dire devastated and decaying lyrics, driven by steady off-tempo rhythms, bleak throbbing bass, and spidery achingly sparkling guitar lines swaying somberly around pain-filled emotional male vocals, echoed by heart-wrenching poignant Tears For Fears-like chorus, suffer dry cries of hoarse desperation into the apocalyptic deadly tides of despair.
