Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Pop, EBM.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Swedish duoRickard Rosendahl – Paula Lé Boss have already self-released a few singles. “Unleashed” is an EP featuring three songs plus three remixes.
Content: The sound universe of Kunt is mixing different, related, electronic genres. There’s a strong Electro-Pop basis which has been empowered by EBM elements but still a minimal touch. The space-like, female, vocals inject an extra dimension to the songs while you’ll also notice male vocals. Remixes from previous singles have been accomplished by My Love Kills, Tukt and Cryo.
+ + + : The female vocals stand for rage and passion creating a cool addition to the open-minded electronic composition. Minimalism, Experimental, EBM and Electro-Pop have been mixed together. The band this way created an interesting work featuring late 90s sound treatments. “This Blood” is a really great song but I also have to mention a powerful and more EBM-driven remix of “Fcks Given” by My Love Kills and another Indie-Pop driven remix of “Sneaky Sins” by Tukt. The Tukt remix might appeal to fans of IAMX.
– – – : I don’t have real minus points to mention but I’m sure this band is even able to do better.
Conclusion: Kunt sounds as a refreshing and powerful Electronic formation we better can keep an eye on.
Best songs: “This Blood”, “With Craft”, “Fcks Given – Hypnotic Remix by My Love Kills”.
