Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – APRIL #16-23

  • Malmö-based, Swedish goth /post-punk /darkwave act ABU NEIN “Kissing the Glove” single off the forthcoming album “II” on Progress Productions                                                                                             

Consistently purveyors of danceable electro-driven Darkwave of algid and lush elegance combined with a dark vibrant sharp edge, the Swedish act dares the listener to explore the mystery and curse seeded by the snaky dangerous lure of a driving buzzing bassline, fueled by hypnotic skipping beats and eerie warped cinematic synth swirls, whilst a deep dramatic vocal magnetism keeps “Kissing the Glove” on the left hand.

  • Italian new wave /post-punk band Vasa Kumora “Burn Like a Candle” single

Enigmatic Italian band unravels shadowy lovelorn glimmers of compelling romantic poetic drama, reminiscent of early Psychedelic Furs, that somberly wind through meandering moody basslines, skipping rhythms, bouncy stacks of bright synth chords, and weeping guitar riffs, to drive aching penetrating and swelling desolation around deeply frightened husky vocals, and ghostly whispers, dropping heartbroken breathes of alienating pain into intense bleeding reflections of broken dreams.

  • London-based goth /art-rock /post-punk duo (former members of Butterflies on Pins, The Dandelion Graves), Dollhaus “The Devil Makes a Sale” debut single                                                                                             

Debut single by London-based former Butterflies on Pins pair Dollhaus, smothers in a fiery and searing cocoon of sinister ethereal intensity, carved by chilly John McGeoch-like jangling guitar melodies against a warm and ominous backdrop of steady shifting drum beats and silken pulsing basslines, whilst terse, haunted angsty vocals draw bitter breathes of anger and regret from gothic romantic mind game gone astray.
