Curses - Incarnadine

Available:Out of Stock

    Incarnadine marks the third studio album from New York-based darkwave artist Luca Venezia (aka Curses!). Borrowing heavily from EBM and Gothic Rock structures that emerged in the 70s and 80s, Venezia is creating an authentic version of how post-punk and darkwave music would sound using modern recording equipment. Don't think that this takes any edge off of the style however, with tracks like 'Blood Oath' still retaining that classic sound. 'Boundless' featuring the vocals of Jennifer Touch is like a Coldwave time capsule opening after 40 years, and features impeccable synths and drums. Think of Taylor Dane in her goth phase. Incarnadine is a pocket of 10 timeless tracks, housed on an incredible double LP. A compulsory listen for those who long back to a Cocteau Twins era of Jangly processed guitars and echoed vocals, Curses! Is a transformative listen.
