Album Review: Goose - Synrise (!K7)
The drone of Belgium's dragging synths
Another attempt at raising the corpse of electroclash from its garish tomb is grim enough without continuing to mine the last of the DFA synths initially stolen for 2006 debut ‘Bring It On’.
Thus, finding little to update an already antiquated sound, their juddering electronics and barking vocals instead percolate ‘Synrise’ with all the majesty of an amphetamine-fuelled comedown, ‘After’ proving a particularly finger-gnawing experience. Electrotrash.
