Death In The Afternoon | Singles & B-Sides

May 4, 2012 at 12:32 pm Leave a comment

Since the last time I wrote about Death In the Afternoon, the band went through some personnel changes. But it seems they haven’t skipped a beat. This latest release, “Singles & B-Sides” features five tracks, some older like “John Who”, along with previously-unreleased singles, “Francis In the City” and “Kino”. The Swedish band have a unique sound, that combines electronic dance elements with a sort of rock dreampop. The results are songs that feel both cerebral and innate. They can make you think and dance, probably depending upon what type of music listener you are. You can follow the band at facebook and their official website here. I’m a fan of the track, “Kino”, a song that had me thinking of old Dead or Alive. Maybe it’s the hypnotic repetition of that deep synth riff mixing with those pretty and elongated lead vocals, “We scream out, and we follow the light.” Or maybe it’s the pop choral hooks paired together with dark synth undertones. Be sure to check out “John Who” and the infectious “Hollywood” too. You can listen to the songs at bandcamp. – David D. Robbins Jr.
