Genre/Influences: Experimental, industrial, ritual, shoegaze.

Background/Info: Kill Your Boyfriend has been active since 2011 and now consists of the duo Matteo Scarpa and Antonio Angeli. They released a considerable number of productions and are back with a 4-track EP, which is available on cassette and digital format. “Ghosts” deals with the ‘daily ghosts that arise from memories, trauma and deprivations’.

Content: “Ghosts” mixes different styles, but is mainly driven by electronic manipulations. It’s definitely experimental, but quite accessible through other elements like ritual passages, dark and industrial-like parts and even a more shoegaze inspired cut.

+ + + : “Ghosts” is an EP with a unique style, which is hard to define, but resulting from merging different styles with each other. The duo sound comfortable with all influences although I have a preference for the pure electro-noises where they reveal themselves as truly sound architects. I also enjoyed the somewhat ritual element running through, “Man 9”.

– – – : I regret this is only an EP featuring 4 short cuts while every single song sounds like a new experiment featuring different influences.

Conclusion: “Ghosts” is a perfect remedy to cure your everyday ghosts, once again revealing the healing power and magic of music. This is a fascinating exposure.

Best songs: “Man 9”, “Man 1”.

Rate: (7).
