Ien Oblique – Drowning World (CD Album – Infacted Recordings)Posted on 30/01/13
Genre/Influences: Synth-pop, EBM, body-pop.
Content: Ien Oblique is an American trio that was set up in 2007. They were signed to Infacted Recordings to unleash their debut album “Drowning World”. The band made some noticeable sampler contributions, but this album will for sure increase their recognition.
The intro song features an electronic inspiration mixed with Eastern tones, but is not that representative for the real content of their work. The song “A Moment With You” is the real kick off and the least I can say is that this song sounds amazing. This is a devastating EBM piece with a flavor of synth-pop. It’s the perfect merge between dance vibes and great sound research. I can’t say that this song is fully representative for the entire release, which rapidly moves into explicit synth-pop and body-pop styles.
The already known title song (released on different samplers) is a quite representative and alluring song in the body-pop style of this band. A few more songs are quite similar. The songs are based upon carrying leads and powerful dance vibes. “Drowning World” is a remarkable production featuring alluring bass lines, noticeable pop arrangements and typical pop minded vocal parts. I think it’s not a coincidence if they claim to be inspired by bands like I AM X, Depeche Mode ao. But in the end this band has its own sound and electro style.
Conclusion: “Drowning World” is an accomplished work featuring several great songs. This band reveals a noticeable maturity and perfectly knows how to compose great electro-pop music. No doubt about it, this is a refreshing newcomer in the scene.
Best songs: “A Moment With You”, “Drowning World”, “The Dawn”, “Free”, “Perfect Crime”.
