WL//WH Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips #46

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Bogota, Colombia Darkwave/Post-Punk/Synthwave duo NOROMAKINA “Vacio” off “Visceral” EP on COLD TRANSMISSION MUSIC

In their first release for Cold Transmission, the duo, showing brazen personality and driving intensity, bang out unmistakable obscure and magnetic dance-inducing darkwave, made of bouncing propelling rhythms intersected through ominously tense blazing synth flows amid treacherous crawling bassline and alluringly lost, tortured male vocals, spiralling into an unforgiving grinding cold and shimmering darkness.

  • Baltimore goth/electronic/industrial/darkwave solo project SISTER SARIN “There’s Nothing Left” from new 2-track single “As The Sky Falls”

Skinny Puppy synthetic reverberations infuse the new single from Sister Sarin, fresh from a record deal with Steve Archer’s Wolfcore Records. Cinematic moods build tension and fear through ominous industrialized electronic anticipation, soaked in oscillating bassline menace, shuttering scattered beats and spoken word theatrics of whispered confessions revealing an isolated existence spent cowering in pain from an apocalyptic evil about to be unleashed.

  • Erfurt, Germany new wave/darkwave solo project DROPPED “Hold The Faith”                                                     

A mysterious musician from East Germany under the Dropped moniker just on Soundcloud looking for his own sound, and he does it rather well with the gripping and sharply emotional 80s tinged classic darkwave number through relentless pounding rhythms and deep rumbling bleak bassline, pierced by mournful, lost sparkling guitar chords lingering into tragic, poignant melodies set against cold, dispassionate vocals’ dreaded emptiness and fear. Let’s ‘hold the faith’ for more morose goodness like this…
