Winter is coming and I’m craving for cold, grim sounds, I can’t help it. The synth-heavy darkwave duo that is Linea Aspera has got me completely spellbound. They’re on the more catchier spectrum of darkwave than the icy monotone no-disco of coldwave. It’s dancier, and it’s dark and it makes you feel like you’re in some underground leather party in a basement somewhere, dancing, to them.
But don’t loose yourself too easily just yet – the anti-everything lyrics are razor-sharp and cuts deep:
[Linea Aspera - Eviction]
[Linea Aspera - Hinterland]
[Linea Aspera - Antipodean Tedium]
