My review: Hammershoi – Hammershoi
When I find myself immersed in the beauty of these sounds and of this auditory magnet, then I think that my luck is really great.
The French duo manages to break down the distance of time by baking fresh, crisp, flavourful bread with this album that nourishes legs, mind and heart.
Immersed in the typically French intense synthwave, this work shows the splendid impulse to skilfully go through even an intelligent and non-invasive EBM. There is always an intense lightness in their compositions, where madness elegantly visits the dance floors.
8 sound flashes that make you understand how in these musical fields everything is still possible in terms of evolution and amazement.
The two voices intersect with constancy charming us, perfect in their interplay.
You dance with your legs but also with your eyes, as a flow that involves without separating. But the most captivating part of this album are the songs, able to become nails in your head: mantras, nocturnal splinters like guiding diamonds, rhythms driven by a drum machine beating at full strength, an electronic that never stops surrounding us like grey and black magnets.
We are in a track swelling our chest: the Germany of Daf, the Belgium of the first Coldwave and Synthwave, the France of the golden age, all together to stun us. We are intoxicated and corrupted by these sparks full of breath.
