Cold Cave - Love Comes Close

The first album from this Philadelphia project is a bit of an anachronism: every element is recognizable, every influence is obvious, but still, there's something taking these 9 songs into a place of their own. Not really much related to the present, but also not entirely a pastiche of the past, so let's call it an object living in an unique world, eh? Think 80's industrial sounds, lots of noise and static, a drum machine, infectious melodies and tense gothic atmospheres and you will get an idea of what's in store for you. Effusive darkwave synth pop for the most sinister dancefloors. (7,5/10)
