VEiiLA – Mantra – Audio

The Russian gothic-spire duo VEiiLA released the LP Dive on the 7th.

Veilla

Veilla

The haunting beauty of the vocal of Vif Nütefills, akin to a Brocken spectre, captivates the attention whilst two synths wrap silky webs around the listener as the electro-drums manipulated by Bes Eiredt fasten the listener in wet leather which dries around the wrists, leaving the audience writhing in tightly bound ecstasy.

The six track album (available on bandcamp) is best heard in a echoing dimly lit dungeon with candles dripping across the torso.

The third song is the six and just over a third minutes – Mantra and my pick of the release.

Wild Eyes is more guitar orientated than music of theirs previously while retaining the underpinning of electronica allowing them to deliver a song which fills the room in a deep-purple haze as the mesmeric vocal takes the spotlight.

Nemra – Born In 94 – Single Review

The Armenian electro-rock band Nemra revealed the single Born In 94 on the 3rd.

Nemra

Nemra

For a while now Nemra and I have been exchanging emails with timing never quite being matched, so it is with some delight, finally everything has aligned with Born In 94.

Immediately on hitting play the listener finds themselves joining in with the skipping beat that joyfully steps through the room. Keys and bass conjoin to deepen the score marks of the footsteps while the guitar is freed to give the song its texturing while the vocal pirouettes through the ears leaving the audience delighted to have spent time in their company.

As importantly Nemra are not a one trick pony as they are equally adept are delivering more compacted blues infused rock’n’roll and it comes as no surprise they are well received in their locale, it is however a sadness that their music is not better known internationally.

Dark Voice Of Angelique – Contra – Audio

The Russian dystopian-drone project Dark Voice Of Angelique was introduced earlier in the year.

Dark Voice Of Angelique - Contra

Dark Voice Of Angelique

Most recently released was the eleven track LP Null And Void (available on bandcamp) and is of equally harrowing soundscape.

The combinations of voice, percussive animate and inanimate objects robed in oppressive electronica cloak the room in a menacing darkness.

The fourth song is the less than three minutes of Contra.
