New sonic impulses…
13 February 2020
Who: “A darkwave/post-punk collaboration conceived in Minneapolis/St Paul in 2018, drifted to Seattle. The duo consisting of Dom R. (vocals, guitar, synth, drum programming) and Vanee D. (vocals, synth, bass) describes their music as layers of yearning sounds, bleeding into uplifting, sanguine beats, with an intimate message about modern day malaise told from an exposed, vulnerable lens.”
Track: SUBTLE – first single and also the title track from their debut EP
Score: Talking about a terrific debut! ‘Subtle‘ is an awesome, pounding darkwave killer.
The first affecting part starts with a vibrating synth riff, pounding drums and the spiritual voice of Dom R. Shortly after, the track enters a darker territory where The Sisters Of Mercy and German duo D.A.F also love to wander around, looking for obscure inspiration. The sound gets threatening, ominous and enigmatic, now with sombre vocals by Vanee D. heading its way towards a hellish end. Hallows definitely have a great gloomy future!
