Logic & Olivia – Night Of Despair (Digital EP – Infacted Recordings)
Background/Info: German formation Logic & Olivia is already active for several years now and can look back at different productions released on Danse Macabre and Infacted Recordings (since 2014). This new EP is meant as a teaser to the new full length “Louder Than Words”.
Content: The title song is a great piece of electro-pop music, which is mainly carried by an impressive lead, a deep, vibrating bass line and a retro touch on top of the song.
We next get remixes by Dominatrix and Edobot plus a cool, instrumental B-side song, which sounds as a kind of extended version.
+ + + : This EP reveals a great title song, which in my humble opinion also is their best song to date. I especially like the phenomenal and somewhat vintage-like lead running through the song. But the song “Despair Of The Night” also is a great B-side. The song has been progressively built up and has a sort of transcendental-pop feeling.
– – – : The only minus point about the EP is that both remixes don’t really add a bonus. I can’t say the remixes are disappointing, but they remain under the high qualitative level of the original version.
Conclusion: This EP is exactly what I expect as a teaser announcing a new album; a great title song and an excellent B-side cut. The new full length sounds promising!
Best songs: “Night Of Despair”, “Despair Of The Night”.
