Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips #48

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • Conwy, UK DIY post-punk/darkwave/gravepop/synthpop solo project BLEACHED HEAT “Do humans float?” from the new album “Bleakism”

Ably merging glassy and icy melodic synth-pop riffs and hypnotic basslines with dark and bleak post-punk vibes, adorned by a Phil Oakley-like new wavish voice, the mighty DIY debut artifact of ‘grave-pop’ heartfully crafted by Welsh musician Stevie Eh, fully deserves repeated listens throughout all your festive period and beyond.

  • UK Electronic /Post-punk /Darkwave and Electronica one-man-band KILL SHELTER “Buried Deep” from ”Sparkles in the Dark vol.5 – Radio Darkitalia edition” via Darkitalia

Our fave Scot post-punker Kill Shelter unleashes an instantly classic pitch-dark and sensually seething slab of darkwave, such powerfully epic and bone-chilling cold, you can’t help but just be buried deep into it. Impressive first preview from next year sophomore LP. Check out the brilliant compilation with lots of rarities and unreleased tracks from some of the best bands of the current scene, properly collected with passion by the ‘one and only’ Italian webzine & community, even Radio, Darkitalia.
