Genre/Influences: Cold-wave, gothic.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Hailing from Munich (Germany) Elvis De Sade signed to Young And Cold Records to unleash their debut work featuring five songs. Back in time we should have called it a mini-album.

Content: “Angelus Novus” sounds inspired by classical cold-wave music, but still has something very personal on top of their work. The songs are rather slow and definitely dark. I now and then got the impression of recognizing some Bauhaus elements.

+ + + : I like EP’s featuring different songs and without any remixes. It gives a better idea about the band you’re listening to and especially when it concerns a first work. The vocals have something fascinating for their clear, but charismatic production. The best exposure from the EP is the last song entitled “Mirror Reflection”. It remains a rather ‘soft’ track, but it has an elevating power. 

– – – : I can’t say “Angelus Novus” is featuring a potential hit. It’s an easy listening work, which now needs to be elaborated.

Conclusion: This debut work can’t totally convince, but might appeal for 80s lovers of cold-wave music. 

Best songs: “Mirror Reflection”, “Sorrows Vanish These Nights”.

Rate: (6).
