Album Review

The band has been founded by two founding members of SHARON NEXT complemented with a solo artist as front man. Ever since those three have joined forces a lot has happened. They’ve released three EPs on three different labels and through joint-ventures with AND ONE or L’AME IMMORTELLE they’ve gained quite a high reputation in the German electro scene. At the end of 2007 they eventually unleashed their first full-length ‘Just like mine’ on Synthom Records. In 2009, a split EP was released comprising 3 songs of the band with 3 others from HEIRSTYLE.

While listening through these songs I am kind of transported back to the 80´s but the easy and playful songs works amazingly good today. Since I am a lover of good synth-pop I really enjoy all the songs on this well built album. ‘Tender Loving Care’ opens up the album and I enjoy listening to this easy and good song. I like that it’s so easy to hear what the singer Eric Nelson is singing. ‘Illuminate’ (Jesus on Extasy Remix) was an instant favourite; it begins with interesting and good synth sounds before the song opens up with an easy rhythm. Clear and good vocals join in and then the song speeds up some. I simply close my eyes and just enjoy the music that is a cool combination of keyboard, guitars and drums. Catchy chorus that easily get stuck on your mind, I like the playful tone in this song that also make me feel a little sad - how contradict. ‘See Clear’ (Korbin King Remix) starts out slow with intense and moving vocals. Then the song changes and speeds up in a cool way. This song is kind of addictive; I enjoy the suggestive atmosphere that it creates and love the moving melody.
