Content: I can’t remember to have ever heard a song from The Process Void. I discovered a sound reminding me of the 80s new-wave movement. Electronics and guitar have been used while you also will notice the sound that will remind you of the good-old rhythm boxes. Some tracks and even vocal parts remind me of the great Belgian new-wave formations Red Zebra and Siglo XX.
+ + + : No doubt about it, The Process Void has found the secret formula to bring the 80s spirit back to life. I can imagine Claus Larsen (being a devoted 80s lover) probably accentuated this link with the past. The songs are easy listening pieces of darkness and melancholia while Alex J Wise has the right timbre of voice for this kind of music.
– – – : I can’t get away from the idea that the songs could have been a bit ‘harder’. I’m missing a truly climax and I can’t say to have found a potential hit on this EP.
Conclusion: “Dreams Of Departure” features a few cool ideas, which the artist now has to elaborate.
Best songs: “Konstellation”.
