Genre/Influences: Electro-pop.


Background/Info: Russian E-Gens call themselves a ‘neo-romantic duo’. They started playing music in 1987 as AT-Home. Later on they started composing their music under the E-Gens moniker and released a noticeable album entitled “Renewed Light” (2013) on the now gone A Different Drum. “Prometheus” got released last year in their homeland on ScentAir Records.


Content: “Prometheus” sounds sweet and accomplished with delicate sound treatments. The songs are all sung in Russian reflecting some melancholia. Most of the songs have a dreamy touch, which is accentuated by astral sound arrangements.


+ + + : The production stands for maturity and knowledge. The songs are well-crafted and reveal a subtle approach, which totally fits with the sensibility of the singer’s timbre of voice. I like the multiple space-bleeps and global sound treatments.


– – – : All songs have been sung in Russian –which was not on the “Renewed Light”-album. So it sounds a bit like this work was mainly accomplished for the Russian market and that’s maybe a bit sad as English would have made the work more accessible. Song-wise there’re less highlights although cool and enjoyable tracks. There’s a club mix from one of the songs as bonus, but I here expected a bit more dance-vibes.


Conclusion: “Prometheus” is a real pleasant work revealing a talented Russian electro-pop formation, but the language might be a serious obstacle to gain an international recognition.


Best songs: “Ветер”, “Зов”, “Душа”.


Rate: (7).
