Genre/Influences: Dark-Wave, Cold-Wave, Wave-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: I discovered this Italian duo from their previous album “Don’t Chase The Light” released in 2020 on Final Muzik. Livio Caenazzo (guitars, vocals, programming) and Daniele Iannacone (keyboards, background vocals, programming) now joined hands with the German established label Dark Transmission to unleash this new opus featuring ten songs.

Content: The album sounds as a serious wink to the 80s Dark-Wave and Electro-Wave music. There’s a true Dark-Wave element created by guitar playing while the songs are evolving into an unexpected Electro style. Both elements are matched together and are even carried by big, danceable, kicks. The album progressively becomes more and more Pop-like and one of the tracks are even reminding me of Mesh.

+ + + : I know less bands able to achieve such a perfect balance between heavy Dark-Wave and catchy Electro-Wave. In the end I would say the work sounds more Electro driven but the guitar play however is an essential aspect of this album. The second half -which is more Electro driven, also hides alluring songs like “The Loop”, “The Fall”, “Split feat. A Copy For Collapse” and “All I Want”. But right at the beginning the dark-Wave orientated “God Is A Machine” and “Not A Saint” both are still little sonic pearls.

– – – : I regret some of the songs are a little bit too short -and that’s because all songs are great -by the exception of an instrumental intermezzo.

Conclusion: This band confirms its strong potential and has accomplished a true masterpiece. 

Best songs: “The Loop”, “God Is A Machine”, “The Fall”, “Not A Saint”, “All I Want – Bonus Track”, “Split feat. A Copy For Collapse”, “Pain Is Just A Noise”.

Rate: 9.
