They even seem to expand towards electronic music, which I absolutely don't mind, especially not when it's as stunning as this stuff by Fär, a duo from the town of Brakel. The duo of An-Sofie De Meyer (vocals, sampler) and Tim De Gieter (synths, beats, production) will debut their bass heavy music on Consouling's Circuits imprint early October and there are a few reasons why you should check out this album.
Opener 'Alpha' somehow feels like Vive La Fète, Zola Jesus and Cocteau Twins end up in a recording studio after a night of heavy drinking. Electronic, danceable but dark and deep, throughout the album I often think of acts like Scorn. In 'Lungs' even Author and Punisher comes to mind. Yes, there are tremendous flashes of industrial electronics to be found on this album, along with elements from ambient, trap and witch house.
'Epicaricacy' is probably my favorite track here. Not only does it contain these gloomy elements but there is also a hint of dark, underground eighties gothic music to be found. Besides, it contains basslines you can surf on. Das Ich would (and should) be jealous of this atmosphere. Besides, with An-Sofie De Meyer, Fâr has a highly convincing vocalist that can easily carry these songs.
In all, 'Salute' is a brilliant album, one I will definitely recommend to anyone who is into electronics and darkness. According to the biography, live shows are overwhelming and with stomach stimulating basses like this album has, I can easily believe that. So yes, I urge you to check it out and to get your hands on a copy of this album. You won't regret it, I promise you.
