Genre/Influences: New-wave, gothic.
Background/Info: No Trust In Dawn is a brand-new duo hailing from Kassel Germany. Driven by Soykut Gür (Down To Reality) and Rio Black (Atomic Neon), the band joined hands with the Dark Dimensions group to unleash this debut opus.
Content: The influences of this band will rapidly come through. The Cure definitely is the one and only source of inspiration, which comes back nearly the entire album long. No Trust In Dawn reminds me of the 80s period of Robert Smith and his gang. The songs reveal a melancholic touch, which makes me think to the sensitive and dark side of The Cure’s famous song “Charlotte Sometimes”.
+ + + : “As We Fall” is a well-crafted album with a perfect match between mewing and sensitive guitar playing and elevating electronics. Sadness and melancholia became beautiful and essential aspects of this work. If you’re a fan of The Cure you possibly gone like No Trust In Dawn. It’s not only about the sound, but even the timbre of voice reminds me of Robert Smith. This is a beautiful album.
– – – : There’s only one The Cure and that’s possibly what will hurt listeners discovering “As We Fall”. This album is not about artistic creativity, but simply copyists.
Conclusion: No Trust Is Dawn is possessed by The Cure and the only remedy is to start an exorcism and begging Robert Smith to come out of that body! But as I don’t believe in exorcism and don’t care about blasphemy, I simply prefer to enjoy this great album!
Best songs: “Come Closer”, “Trust Me”, “Trash”, “Matthew”.
