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

Genre/Influences: Cold-Wave, Minimal-Electro, Wave-Pop.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Tara Jane is a female artist based in Los Angeles (USA) and who claims to be inspired by 80s Dark-Wave and contemporary Synth-Pop.

Content: “Night Call” features 8 songs which are getting us back to the magic of 80s Electronics; quite minimal-driven strings and bleeps, melodic but cold, and sexy vocals on top.

+ + + : Although this artist doesn’t’ bring anything new, the production sounds refreshing. I like the retro-style which has been perfectly adapted into cool songs; especially the second part of the album features a great exposure. The vocals express less emotion which makes them pretty sexy. 

– – – : I regret the album is only featuring 8 songs but you don’t hear me complain.

Conclusion: Caress is a great and promising exposure from retro Electronic-Minimalism. 

Best songs: “Mortal Flaw”, “Unchained”, “Dream Girl”, “The Stranger”.

Rate: 7 ½.

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.
