Covered Faces - Lobiep EP (2011)




/Electroclash, Art punk, Mood music, Alternative pop, Krautrock, Electro-indie, Synth-punk, Indie dance/

Comment: this handful of ebulliently energetic compositions comes out of Basque Country/Euskadi, by Covered Faces whose music is a seamless blend of electroclash and synth punk compartments led by the female voice. Indeed, it is thoroughly puzzling to draw the line between those stylistic elements. However, it does make sense in theoretical mind-set only. Emotionally it is overwhelming due to those overdriving synth gears at different paces depending on certain pieces. Mostly it is intense and fast-stepping, though Abandoned Dogma has been managed in the way to chime like a majestic, epic one which could be compared with the aesthetics of Siouxsie & The Banshees, for instance. In contrast to it, Stroppy, the following piece is an example of lovely, childish melodies ringing almost like an instance of lounge music, however, hiding a spellbinding motorik groove beneath it. It is a pre-eminent piece either. I like their lead citation loaned by Oscar Wilde - give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. Indeed, it is truly relevant today as well regarding the so-called democracy around us. You are not allowed to talk about certain themes unless you want to get fired and get stigmatized or even go to prison. The more you steal the taxpayer`s money the more righteous person you are appears to have been frequently a formula for acting. In a nutshell, it is a solid electro-punk issue.
