SCHONWALD – Night Idyll

Tags

Schonwald who have been very busy touring have their 5th album Night Idyll due for release in June. I’m very happy to say I’ve got hold of an advance copy to review 😉 So what can you expect from album No5? The album opens with Damage -The intro will appeal to fans of Drab Majesty as the song hurtles full thrust for the dancefloor. What a great mix of guitars and graceful electronic undertones topped off with the perfect vocal delivery! Love it! Sleepy Destiny will keep your feet firmly on the dancefloor. Schonwald had a great sound before but the subtle change to electronics and drums is sublime. Great song! Austral – Just when you thought you might escape the dancefloor the assault continues in one of Schonwald’s best released songs so far. Exceptional vocal delivery. Nice!


Love Collides -Love this track too, it’s like Schonwald have found a new level of brilliance in composing and mixing their songs. Damn catchy this will have you jumping around. Great! Oceans – Don’t be fooled by the intro as bang and its back to dancefloor. If the Pied Piper had played a guitar he would have been called Luca as he pulls out some highly addictive guitar loops. Fantastic song! Iridium – Just when you might have thought it can’t get any better it does. Think of a highly polished Soft Moon but better 😉 I can’t wait to DJ to this song, and dance to it live. Epic electronics throughout! Wow! Berlin Ice – and the tempo is cranked up 😉 This will ignite the dancefloor and burn a hole in it! Surprising Violence – Darkly atmospheric darkwave to make you dance! Nice! A Secret – Has quite a lovely space sequencer intro which swirls throughout this dreamy slice of shoegaze. Love it! Temple brings the album to a pounding close. Could be the perfect fusion of Shad Shadows and Schonwald. One of best albums of 2017. What a great band! Shame they are not at Leipzig this year ;( Lots of good bands across Italy at the moment they could probably have their own venue at the WGT ;). This is an essential album.

Principe Valiente – Oceans

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sweden’s Principe Valiente return with their third album Oceans. The album opens with Wildest Flowers with Fernando’s as strong as ever voice soaring high above a fantastical shoegaze sea of breezy guitars, bass, drum and keyboards that ebbs and flows around the aural senses. Great track! When I Learned To Crawl – some great guitar hooks that rock! Female vocals add a new dynamic towards the end of the song.

Strangers In The Night was the instant stand out track for me with luscious guitar and bass hooks in a composition as good as anything on Sisters Of Mercy’s “Floodland” with a sprinkle of The Cure / The Essence what a great gothic track! Untouchable is a classical cold, lonely, melancholic slice of dark atmosphere which drifts into almost Slowdive darkened dirge. Love it! Running juveniles – has the musical feel of The Cure’s “Disintegration” album without being a tribute. Dark dream pop! No Time – has a strong 80’s new wave feel in the guitars which makes for another great track. Love the sparks of dual male/female vocals. The Reason Why – sublime shoegaze. Monsters Of The Sea – keeps the tempo low on this delicate dark dreamscape. Great! The album’s over too soon.

Drab Majesty @ Wharf Chambers Leeds 8th May 2017

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Last night I paid my first visit to Wharf Chambers in Leeds to see a great band from Los Angeles Drab Majesty.

 

In a sparsely lighted cold back room, a small but enthusiastic crowd (anymore it might have been like the inside of a sardine can) of beards, black dexy’s bean’s, tote bags and a couple of goths.

I can imagine this is what it must felt like when the fledgling Sisters of Mercy played the F-Club to a small alternative but well informed audience back in the 8o’s.

After a long trip from Athens, Deb. D and Mona D showed no sign of tiredness as they belted out a sublime sonic shoegaze gothic drenched set including  Too Soon To Tell

39 By Design

The Foyer

Dot In The Sky


Cold Souls.

Deb D and Mona D visually remind me very much of the visual mesmerising androgynous celestial beings that Capt Kirk used to encounter back in the days of the cult TV series.

Without doubt this was the most Gothic concert that will take place in Leeds this year and as per usual not many goths turned out as they seem scared of new music or bands which are not from the UK. I’m glad I made this gig and managed to see what promises to be the best debut at this year’s Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig 😉
