SHE PAST AWAY
Als er dan toch 1 band is die momenteel de vaandeldrager van de Darkwave scene is, dan is het She Past Away, uit Turkije. Pak het beste van The Cure, Sisters Of Mercy en Clan of Xymox, en je weet wat je mag verwachten. Dansbare melancholische en duistere (Darkwave)deuntjes, met het geluid van nu. She Past Away is de moderne Waveband, die je gezien moet hebben! Zweef je thuis nog weg op de platen van Anne Clark, Siouxsie, Joy Division of Soft Cell, dan weet je waar je vanavond moet zijn! In december stonden ze nog in een uitverkochte Baroeg, nu in Dynamo!
Selofan followed the siren call of the 80’s goth sounds and minimalism, carving out their own spot at the forefront of independent wave music scene. The seasoned hunters constantly digging for new dramas and passions to grace their visual intention and musical charm, the band specialize in deep, cold and racy analog sounds- but have always been favored along with howling vocals, well-distilled synths and heartbroken sax- when it comes to the occasional shootout between genre trenches. Selofan brilliantly express the band’s main themes they’ve been exploring since their existence: that there is dark humor in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and get stronger.
Local Heroes Palais Ideal’s high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of post-punk and new wave. They use vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound, inspired by works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and the Sisters of Mercy. As musicians and producers, both members have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively. They have collaborated in their previous bands with members of Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox and Swans.
Formed in the industrialised north of England, Auger is Kyle Wilson (21) lead vocals, keyboards, programming and Kieran Thornton (21) guitar and backing vocals. Auger’s hard-hitting and hyper-melodic approach to music is a true breakthrough in the goth/industrial scene, go check their album “The Awakening”.
