MicroClocks-Soon Before Sundown

gothpost review

Artist: MicroClocks Release: Soon Before Sundown Label: Echozone Let us start with some simple and basic information, as usual: MicroClocks is a German band.

This is actually their second full- length release. “Echtzeit” is a strong album, I could admit! The material presented here is a delicate, emotionally driven electronic pop music.

Strong from the high impact that their latest gothic album ‘Sonic Foundation’ had on the scene (ranking top 50 on the iTunes Rock Chart in the USA and top 10 on Bandcamp. HELALYN FLOWERS now return with this album’s second “single” for ‘Frozen Star‘. One the most acclaimed songs from the new album, and the perfect sonic demonstration of the Italian duo’s ability to perfectly balance the dichotomy within their own sound, showcasing like a sort of battlefield between dark, surreal synthpop and armageddon-like guitars and edgy, hypnotic as well…
