Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips #30

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Augsburg, Germany based synthpop/post-punk solo-project created by Belarusian musician Arthur Tsymbal with partial support by Moscow’s keyboarder Egor Ivakhnenko, The Violent Youth – “Ya Vlublyon / I’m In Love” new single from the upcoming album “Tam Gde Nas Net”.

Belarusian outfit approaches the new album in vibrant and riveting fashion, through bittersweet piercing guitar melodies sparkle through glittery waves of icy synth and skipping pulsing rhythms, whilst nostalgic vocals long for better times. Ya Vlublyon!

  • Palmira, Colombia EBM/synthwave/minimal wave solo project of Anthony Said Grueso, aka HUMAN 80 Feat Allienmi – “Camino Equivocado” on Nevel Records                                                                                                

One of the two of powerful minimal synth-driven cuts delivered this week by the Colombian synthesist, to unleash high energy hypnotic obscure-dancefloor-embedded rhythms, that unravels with pinpoint rambling bass pulses, peppy lashing beats and icy sinister synth expansions, as distant robotic female vocals cast ominous haunting echoes into the cold dark void.

  • Los Angeles darkwave/synth-punk project of Darrack Death of Secret Mutilator, Walls Of Poland “Waved Ones”
