Neuf – Electroacoustical Murder (Album – Neuf)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Electro-Punk, Electro-Rock, EBM.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Neuf is a new Swedish trio based in Gothenburg. This is their self-released debut-work featuring nine songs.

Content: The work sounds like a true sonic cocktail. The debut part is mixing Electro-Rock together with EBM bass lines and a Pop touch on top. The song “UK82” is a personal adaptation of The Exploited’s “UK82”. The last tracks are coming closer to an imaginary hybrid of The Young Gods and Armageddon Dildos.

+ + + : The last part of the work is my favorite one. The connection with The Young Gods is obvious, but Neuf also reveals a mature songwriting with a perfect balance between guitar play and electronics. “1-7” is a great song I invite you to discover.

– – – : The debut part of the album is more hesitant featuring a band, which still has to find its own sound. This ‘sound’ becomes more explicit in the second part.

Conclusion: “Electroacoustical Murder” is an interesting debut and an interesting basis to move on with.

Best songs: “1-7”, “I’m Your Cancer”, “A Chance To Retire”.

Rate: 6½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
