Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – APRIL #17-23

  • Los Angeles-based indie rock /post-punk /new wave solo project of Vince Grant, AKA The Sea At Midnight “Under The Water” new single

Uplifting and nostalgic pure ’80s Wave vibes from the new single by L.A.-based singer-songwriter Vince Grant, paints a romantic encounter “Under the Water” swept in attraction, ecstasy, and joy, in a lush cascade of wistful jangly guitar arpeggios, fuzzed-out riffs, soul-stirring wailing leads and entrancing dizzy synth washes, just darkened by somberly murmuring post-punkish bassline throbs, whilst powerful and gripping heartfelt confession dancing the night away under the stars mercurial lights.

  • Gold Coast, Australia goth /darkwave/electronic /new wave solo project of multi-media artist Sam Haven aka KAARST “Underneath The Blood Moon” single on his own label Crucible Art

A moody mystical and majestic dark atmospherics, interlacing ethereal spectral synth swathes with sinister shuddering droning bass oscillations and steady marching beats to steer haunted vocals of Jazz Coleman-like vibrant intensity through agony and ecstasy of wishful and angsty blinding transformations, “Underneath the Blood Moon.”

  • Russian electronic /alternative /darkwave duo DIVOLE “Nothing More” single                                     

Stark, solemn yet profoundly all-consuming Darkwave from the Russian duo that immerses and grabs the listener through hypnotic ominous ritual kicks, scattered lashing beats, and buzzing low ends nervously lingering and seething along with deep emotional bewitching vocal harmonies, to rise and fall with a magnetic pounding pace and intense breathless passion, circled by churning glittering synth drama, to deliver the final, painful blow to heartbreak as there is “Nothing More.”
