Featuring Domenic and Kyle from shoegazers Nothing the band Death Of Lovers offers a new artsy manifesto with the debut full length “The Acrobat”.
On “Orphans Of The Smog” certainly the post-punk elements are quite evident as Death Of Lovers skillfully concocts a perfect soundtrack for your daydreaming with hopeful minimalist guitar melodies and soft beats channeling full blown ‘80s nostalgia.
With a distinct cold wave aura “Ursula” could either favor a relaxing time or make you feel like dancing with dazed melodic guitars and a rather catchy rhythm holding the right dosage of retro atmospheric arrangements.
On “The Lowly People” vocals offer mixed feelings of profound melancholy and romantic vibes as the simple rhythmic patterns and warm guitar harmonies flow gently like a breeze reminiscing of ‘80s movies soundtracks.
On “Quay D’Orsay” palapable‘80s vibes can become quite luminous yet maintain a melancholic essence with soft arpeggios and stylish melodic guitars while electro infused instrumental passages ensure a hypnotizing mood.
With a totally danceable upbeat rhythm “The Absolute” is filled with post-punk dynamics but shimmering synths layers tend to gain a primary role favoring a surreal atmosphere that gracefully leads to a slick jazz saxophone solo.
The nostalgic themes of “The Acrobat” certainly will fascinate any listeners as Death Of Lovers focus on creating an overdose of sparkling melodies and dreamy atmospheres.
