Genre/Influences: EBM, minimal-electronics.
Background/Info: After their successful debut album “Slave New World” the duo David Thrussell (Snog, Black Lung ao) – Tony D’Oporto (Gnome) are back with the new song “Orange Man Bad”.
Content: The title track is danceable piece mixing minimal electronics and intelligent EBM together with spooky vocals on top. Remixes were made by Solid State and Nick Woolfson.
+ + + : The title song is in my opinion the best and definitely most dancefloor-minded piece from Crisis Actor. But it’s not just ‘danceable’ music, but first of all an intelligent EBM format constructed with numerous little details, effects and sophisticated noises. The ghost-like production of the vocals is another great trick, which totally fits with the minimalism of the song. Both remixes bring diversity, but I especially recommend the sensual-like version of Nick Woolfson. I here really enjoyed the deep, vibrating tones.
– – – : I just regret this EP (which is more a single) only features one original track and two remixes.
Conclusion: If this song is an appetizer for an eventually next full length, I can assure you it for sure is a potential hit!
