Album Review
Reviewed 2019-03-03
Fantastic darkwave/synthpop project featuring the electronic production of Austin Croom and a trio of standout female vocalists Amakiya (Golden Dawn Arkestra, Fort Never, The Digital Wild), Allanah Maarteen (Imitari), and Audriana Acuña. Dramatic and grandiose with moody goth and shoegaze elements. Great stuff.

*1. (2:09) Dark, sinister synthpop with heavily autotuned pained female vocals 2. (3:06) Goth electro, desperate atmosphere *3. (4:07) Slow ambient intro leads into dark but bouncy synthpop. Epic and dramatic *4. (3:43) Ethereal female vocals over a driving electro beat. Breathy and emotional with great orchestral elements 5. (2:20) Ghostly and sinister with swelling string accompaniment and sparse piano. Sounds a lot like Bjork 6. (3:33) Deep, driving electro beat. Slow, echoed vocals float over the bassline *7. (4:18) Hard-hitting electronic beat. Auto-tuned-drenched vocals. Emotional and seductive. Amazing track! *8. (3:00) Bouncy electro track – darkwave but with a lot of clubby elements. High energy and euphoric 9. (3:03) Midtempo piano-driven ballad. Nostalgic with a big, sweeping sound and heavy basslines 10. (2:42) Gloomy, with a clanging industrial beat. Lyrics about love and human nature 11. (1:26) Gentle synth arpeggios transition into a slow orchestral outro. A very cinematic ending
