Influences of wave and industrial are condensed into perfect angst pop. Depressive and touching vocal performance exclusively in Icelandic language. Super dark super sad super beautiful!
The second album from Aska is the first on Galakthorrö. Aska’s initial Synth-Wave underwent a metamorphosis into darkest Angst Pop. Disturbing frequencies are now part of Aska’s sound spectrum and merge with deeply sad melodies and skeletal rhythms. No shallow Wave no dull Noise but a fruitful symbiosis that is absolutely unique in this form. Aska remains accessible at the same time creating a dense apocalyptic atmosphere. This is decisively shaped by depressive and ghostly sounding vocals exclusively in Icelandic. On Út Við Sundin Grá Aska has perfected his technique: the words fall effectively phrased and in an emotionally moving magical fashion into the complex arrangement formed by the raw sounds of analogue synths. The drum machine starts up for the ghost dance. Distant. Empty of human life. Darkness is more than the absence of light.
