Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Darkwave band Fading Colours have a long history behind them, their new album arrives after a lengthy hiatus.
The new effort sees them firing on all cylinders across two discs.
(I Had to) Come is highly rhythmic and sensuous, singer DeCoy reaching new heights vocally.
Be an Angel Again is hard hitting yet melodic, DeCoy’s vocals playing well off her band mates backing.
Seems Strange is densely throbbing track, with intriguing rhythms and a half-spoken vocal lead. It seems to be the stuff of film soundtracks.
Rose is dreamy and yet has a sinister undertow, another fine example of the bands sound.
The second cd offers more complex treats, making sure the band’s return is worthwhile.
