Genre/Influences: Electro-rock & pop.
Background/Info: Robert Eberl set up Soulimage in 2005. The band originally deals with electro-pop music, but progressively evolved towards pop & rock influences. The solo-project finally became a real band featuring 5 members. “Generator” is the official debut-EP by Soulimage.
Content: “Generator” is a cool song, which makes me think of Depeche Mode mixed with late Executive Slacks. There’s a great balance between electronics and guitar while the main strength of the song emerges during the chorus. There also is a somewhat softer, but cool remix of “Generator”.
Both other songs hold on the rock-pop approach, but they’re less melodic. One of the songs “Fall In love Again” was from the full length album “The Whole Universe”.
+ + + : “Generator” is a great title song for an EP! I like the harmony between guitar power and electronic melody lines while the vocals inject an extra power source.
– – – : Both B-side songs are not exactly adding a bonus to this EP. These songs are just average-like.
Conclusion: The title song clearly indicates that Soulimage is a band with a potential so let’s await the album to get confirmation.
Best songs: “Generator”.
