Background/Info: Slovenian Torul are already back on track unleashing a new title-song that will be probably featured at the next full length album they’re actually finishing.
Content: “Ausverkauft” is a rather ‘classical’ Torul-song featuring astral bleeps, a slow, danceable cadence, feelings of evasion and a sensual timbre of voice.
The title song has been remixed by Frozen Plasma, Rotoskop, Into The Knot, Rob Dust and Soni Code.
+ + + : There are not many Torul EP’s that have disappointed me. I can’t say “Ausverkauft” is a new ‘major’ song in their discography, but it remains a cool and delicate track. This delicacy is accentuated by the sensual way of singing. Among the remixes I want to mention the great job done by Rob Dust. Frozen Plasma did a cool remix as well, bringing some fragility to the surface.
– – – : I was never a huge fan of EP’s featuring one title song and a list of remixes. I would have preferred discovering an extra- and why not an exclusive song.
Conclusion: Torul remains faithful to their personal electro-pop style, which is subtle, refined and sensual. Time for the new album now!
