Capital X – ABCD (EP – Capital X)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: EBM, Industrial Hip-Hop.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: I discovered this British female duo ten years ago. After a long silence they released a few new productions during the past few years. “ABCD” features four new cuts.

Content: “ABCD” is a work without real compromises; these girls are just doing their very own and surprising thing. They take off with a rather spooky, EBM cut with punkish vocals on top. The next songs are moving into a kind of Industrial Hip-Hop.

+ + + : I’ve been always fond of creative artists daring to innovate and push boundaries and standards a bit further. This is what I like on songs like “Bite” and “Dare”. The songs reveal a unique approach; kind of Industrial -for the dark sound, Hip-Hop -for some of the vocal parts. It first of all remains a cool Electronic composition.

– – – : Challenges aren’t always the most accessible productions.

Conclusion: Capital X stands for free-styled Electronic compositions; no compromises for new sonic paths!

Best Songs: “Bite”, “Dare”, “Auto”.

Rate: 7.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
