Genre/Influences: Electro-pop, future-pop.

Background/Info: Set up in 2008 by Enrico Filisetti (vocals & lyrics, composition), Ivan Savino (composition, electronics) and Daniele De Fabritiis (guitar), the Italian trio Blume released their debut work “Rise From Grey” (2010) on the now gone A Different Drum. Three years later they joined hands together with WTII Records to unleash “Autumn Ruins”. “Ashes” is their third full length, which appears 5 years after the previous work.

Content: Blume moves on with their electro-pop driven sound, which often serves as cornerstone for a more open-minded sound mixed with future-pop and/or body-pop influences. The songs are well-crafted and might sometimes remind you of an imaginary fusion between Covenant and Assemblage 23.

+ + + : I was literally blown away by the impressive and powerful sound production. It clearly reflects a mature and professional formation taking care of any little detail in the sound. The songs are well-crafted and especially the most powerful cuts are pure lust for the ears. The opening songs are mind-blowing!

– – – : After an astonishing debut part the songs are progressively stagnating. They’re still cool and well-crafted, but maybe a little less too similar.

Conclusion: Blume clearly hasn’t the pretension to take the listeners by surprise. They just deal with a great electro-pop sound carried by a genius sound production. If you like the opening song from the album you are going to like the others as well.

Best songs: “Scarlet”, “Blackening”, “Iron Age”, “Spleen”.

Rate: (7½).
