Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop, Future-Pop.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Ego Bliss is a Mexican solo-project set up in 2019 by Mario Monk (also involved with Para/Normal). He claims to be inspired by Electro-Pop and EBM. This is the debut-release featuring eleven songs.
Content: After a dreamy debut song, the album rapidly moves towards a rather classical mix of Electro/Future-Pop. The songs are pretty danceable and refined, but still featuring darker passages. The vocals are sometimes half spoken – half sung. This is an album appealing for fans of Frozen Plasma, NamNamBulu ao.
+ + + : Ego Bliss accomplished a noticeable debut-album. The production is mature, featuring well-crafted songs with delicate sound treatments. It’s a fully enjoyable album, which even features a potential hit entitled “The Savior”. This song is carried by a solid bass line and robotic vocals.
– – – : I’m sometimes missing a bit more passion in the production of the vocals.
Conclusion: Ego Bliss sounds like a promising newcomer to the wider fields of Electro-Pop music.
Best songs: “The Saviour”, “2 Victims Of Deceit”, “The Darkest Hour”, “Strange Belief”.
