Genre/Influences: Minimal-electro, wave-pop.
Background/Info: Slovenska Televiza is a Spanish duo. I noticed they previously released the single “Bailes Valstīs”. “Documento” is released on vinyl format and features five songs.
Content: The main source of inspiration clearly comes from the 80s. The tracks are electro-driven and accomplished with a deeply minimal touch. The vocals are in the purest 80s spirit as well while featuring passages originally written by W. Shakespeare.
+ + + : The female vocals have something intriguing; a bit sterile-like and yet heavenly performed. The main satisfaction for sure appears in the 80s approach of the band. The electro-wave minimalism brings the 80s back alive and it even sounds as the songs were originally written during this magical decade.
– – – : Cool songs, but I’m missing a hit!
Conclusion: Slovenska Televiza smells like good-old electro-wave and will for sure catch the attention of 80s nostalgics.
Best songs: “Muskiz”, “Invierno En Agosto”.
