„AD delivers a full synthetic blast of carefully crafted 80ies-style electronica: Spherical, gloomy, post-industrial. A true milestone for a new genre of empathetic instrumental music.
A meditative journey into a darkromantic, yet cold and futuristic artificial world of duality, isolation and longing. Raw and simple in speech but rich of content, with enough room to let you reflect your inner world while listening.“
Although “First” was not initially planned as a concept album the compositions are held together by the omnipresent duality we face. It inherits the internal strife of individuals, the incapacity of the masses as well as the contrasts in nature and in life itself: Haunting romantic melodies packed together with machinelike sequences, flowing harmonic soundscapes clash with the crude electricity of industrial beats.
“First” creates a dark and shimmering atmosphere far away from common superficiality and stereotype-thinking, a score for memories and dreams, personal and intimate for the ones who read between the lines.
