Genre/Influences: Synth-pop.

Simple CutBackground/Info: Simple Cut is a Russian duo formation dealing with synth-pop music. They released a digital EP (cf. “All about You”) right before this debut full length.

Content: Simple Cut is a brand-new formation, which seems to perfectly understand how to make cool synth-pop music. They don’t reinvent the genre and don’t add any innovation, but “In Your Arms” is a well-crafted and styled work revealing 8 songs plus 4 remixes.

The sound is pretty clean and quickly creates a kind of ‘feel good’ sensation. It’s a refreshing composition featuring a few more danceable cuts, which are the best ones. A few other songs are more into a melancholic feeling and I mainly refer to the last song (cf. “In Your Arms”), which is the ultimate love song of this work.

The songs are well-crafted and reflect a surprising maturity for a new formation. Simple Cut sometimes moves on the edge of indie-pop music, but this is the kind of album that will please pure synth-pop fans as well. I also have to mention the great vocals skills of their singer (all songs have been sung in English).

The remixes add a real bonus to the album. I mainly recommend the remixes by LastEDEN and their label mates, Radiomun.

+ + + : This album is carried by a real mature and professional global production and the remixes are cool as well.

– – – : It’s a pity Final Cut only reveals 8 songs –including an intro. There are a few cool songs, but unfortunately no absolute hits.

Conclusion: Simple Cut is an interesting discovery and I have to admit that this debut full length reveals several cool songs.

Best songs: “Tonight”, “Space Journey”, “In Your Arms – LastEDEN Remix”, “All about You – Radiomun Remix”.

Rate: (DP:7)DP.
