Background/Info: The new work by Nice Cold Nation features six tracks. Some of the songs were composed during the previous album “Cartésiens” while there’s also a ‘new’ edit of one song plus one remix.
Content: The French Nice Cold Nation remains faithful to its sweet, Dark-Wave sound touched by melancholia. The songs are still sung in French and composed by guitar and electronics. The title song has been also remixed by Hoc Ertis while there’s a “2022”-edit of “Un Homme En Sable” (originally released in 2019 on the album “Life”).
+ + + : Like I already mentioned at the previous album Nice Cold Nation has seriously improved most aspects of the writing and production. It now resulted in a cool and credible sound revealing melancholic songs in the purest Dark-Wave style and sometimes reminding me of The Cure. This band might appeal to lovers of Manic Depression Records.
– – – : The work is missing a kind of ‘hit’ which is maybe the single but major element to reach a wider level and -audience.
Conclusion: French melancholic Wave music which is becoming better and better.
Best songs: “Êtres Contraires”, “Autre Part”.
