Comment: Hanging Freud (at times it has been called Hangin Freud) is the duo of Paula Borges and Jonathan Skinner whose brand new album Nowhere continues the way the Brazil/British duo has been trudging since the beginning of the 10s. It is an enchanting bound of droning vibrant organs, hovering synths, and restrained female singing. Undoubtedly this is an uncompromising yet blissful pop album inspired by Joy Division yet drifting toward more synth-driven direction. Yet it is neither a new wave nor a synth-pop release. Its poppy strain reflects upon something else. At times it may be considered an accelerated version of Lycia or a pre-exorcized rebound of Cocteau Twins. If such a sort of album were released 35-40 years ago it would have been considered a hallmark outing.  The outstanding issue is a part of the discography of myhand.thanx imprint.
