OMBRA INTERNATIONAL

Ombra bring the heat for their newest outing, imaginatively titled 'Ombra 006'. We kick things off with the throbbing synth pulse and reticent Italo percussion of 'Boogie Melody' by csk, pushing forth a driving 2-tone synth strut ahead of the simmering ambient drone and skittering reverbed percussion, before breaking down into a cosmic redux of oscillators and noise only to launch back into the hypnotic main refrain. 

Dame Bonnet are up next with the gothic pop swing of 'New Romance', slowly growing from a dipping bass melody, and shiny metallic synths into a cacophonous rolling groover, eyeliner and all. 

Flip over and we take a trip to Italy for the Red Laser friendly octaved bass and cavernous reverb of 'Drums Across Death', at once dynamic but nuanced, leaving room for the instruments to breathe before launching into the soaring chug and progressive guitar lines that give this tune it's sense of depth and sleek passage from the home onto the dancefloor. 

To finish things off, we get the full-spectrum comedown electronica of 'Never Forget That You Are Alive', mixing the hypnotic driven vibes of Underworld with a perfectly produced hypnotic melody, adding in the feedbacked vox, ready to take things up a notch from simmering melodic electronics into innovative, Tropic Of Cancerian goth-pop.


STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: A brilliantly varied, but perfectly cohesive suite of simmering gothic electronics, driven percussion and soaring melodic stormers. Another killer from the Ombra camp.
