Currently starting basement fires in his new home of Berlin, Melbourne's master of all things Industrial/EBM, Kris Baha, takes a break from his Power Station/Power Cuts duties to drop a snorter for his now local Cocktail D'Amour. Intensely disturbed, sleazy and dirtier than Martin's brew mug, title track "Autora" begins life as a classic EBM cut, rattling our ribs with tough machine beats and a throbbing bassline. Getting weirder as it romps on, "Autora" barks with distorted fx oddities perfectly mashed to an involving balance. "Brink Reality" drops the tempo but up the creep factor, lacing the groove with all manner of mechanical critters. Disembodied vocals whisper and snarl adding a touch of menace, while the occasional break into swooning, synth flute sees us soar into the stars for a brief moment of respite. The beatless "Happiness Disaster" is at once space-aged, scary and cinematic, while B-side opener "10Ways" is a thunder bolt of crushing steel, bouncing percussion and a vocal worthy of Front 242 or Cabaret Voltaire. Closing the EP on a romantic and sweet note, "Start Over" is an italo/wave hybrid ballad tinged with hope and brightness, certain to get some love from the Red Laser massive.
