Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Wave.

Format: Digital, Cassette.

Background/Info: Released earlier this year “Intercourse” features two new songs by the Greek duo Toxic Razor – Kriistal Ann aka Paradox Obscur. The single was released before their newest album “Morphogenesis” (released by Metropolis Records).

Content: The title song speaks for itself, a true sensual piece of electronics animated by sexy male vocals and the colder but hot female vocals. It’s a danceable cut. The B-side song is another dance piece revealing the charismatic vocals of Kriistal Ann.

+ + + : Paradox Obscur is a formation that often took me by surprise and they did it again. The title song is one of their best songs I’ve heard. I like the danceable side of the track but also the gimmick and the low, vibrating, bass line. The vocals sound like an imaginary intercourse. The B-side is another cool song and I especially like the impressive production of Kriistal Ann’s vocals.

– – – : A great single so no true minus points to mention.

Conclusion: “Intercourse” is a great Minimal-Electro smasher and I can only hope the new album will sound the same way.

Best songs: “Intercourse”, “Glow”.

Rate: 8½.

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.
