It’s a pleasure to present to Lissette and Jacob Schoenly who is a duo. Their influence are minimal synth and electro 80´s.
This time, delight us with “Thoughtcrime” its a EP of completely melodies analogous who combined to the perfect harmony with voices Lissette´s.
Thoughtcrime EP is a tape with 5 clues it leaves a person longing for more.
Following on from, ‘Retrospettiva: 2004 -2014′, Italian act Hidden Place re-imagine and rework 9 tracks from their previous four albums, and includes an unreleased track from 2008 and a brand new recording entitled, ‘Alla Mostra Dei Costruttivisti’, highlighting a change in direction, one that encompasses a more angular post-punk sound, whilst still retaining their trademark icy synth refrains.
Hidden Place remain steadfastly anti-genre, refusing to give in to trends, which makes them stand-out in a crowd of an oft diluted ‘scene’. Although their influences can be heard, ranging from early O.M.D. to Clan Of Xymox (amongst other 4AD sounds), through to other Italian darkwave acts such as Die Form and The Frozen Autumn, they continue to defy categorisation or jumping on any kind of cliched ‘Bandwagon’.
Released on CD in an edition of 200.
At first Veil of Light might come across as cold. It’s an easy mistake to make, their grand gothgaze is certainly steeped in melancholy and desolation. But as you become enveloped in the crystalline synth swaths, the mechanical rhythms, and the screeching guitar feedback, you feel a oddly at ease. Comforted. Like pulling your coat tighter as you walk down a empty, rain-wet autumn street.
Beläten is honored to welcome Veil of Light back into the fold, and to present our first vinyl release. Ξ is pressed on heavy, white vinyl, housed in a sturdy cardboard outer sleeve and a printed inner sleeve, and limited to 350 copies.
