Genre/Influences: Future-pop, electro-pop.
Background/Info: Last year Eisfabrik took the electro-pop community with a surprise unleashing of the magnificent “Eisplanet”-album. I experienced this opus as the offspring between VNV Nation and Neuroticfish for the future-pop implementation and Funker Vogt for the harder sequences and danceable kick.
Content: The title song of the EP was one of the highlights from the album while the B-side cut “Cry For You” was another attention grabber.
The “Single Mix” doesn’t deliver anything new, but it’s an opportunity to get back to this kicking song driven by danceable vibes, a typical future-pop lead and charismatic vocal parts.
Among the 3 remixes there’s a noticeable version by Project Pitchfork and a harder guitar-driven “Hell Boulevard Version”. The least I can say is that there’s an interesting diversity between the remixes.
The “Frosty’s Minimix” of “Cry For You” is another smashing cut, which reminds me of Funker Vogt for the solid lead and stumping cadence.
+ + + : “Walking Towards The Sun” is the right song to get released as the EP-title song. The Project Pitchfork-remix will for sure catch the attention of numerous music lovers. This EP reveals a great diversity.
– – – : I can’t really say to have discovered new things. This EP is an item for the biggest fans.
Conclusion: If you don’t know Eisfabrik, this EP will for sure give you a good idea of the band’s potential. This is great contemporary future-pop music.
Best songs: “Walking Towards The Sun – Single Mix”, “Walking Towards The Sun – Hell Boulevard Mix”.
