Synthpop e new-wave la fanno da padrone, nel drumming e sequencer (particolarmente accattivanti sul finale quasi aggressivo di Trigger). - I Gripweed sembrano esser ligi ad una linea melodica sentimentale, soft elettronica da dancefloor, soft per quanto comunque sporcata di lato da riff di chitarra, corpose linee di basso e beat sincopato. La voce di Cristian Rosa resta pulita, senza virtuosismi, magari qualche effetto in più le gioverebbe nel fornire fisicità. Happy End - l'ultima traccia - meglio racchiude l'incontro delle sfaccettature più tradizionali del genere con lo spirito dark - c'è anche una discreta ricerca compositiva. - Credo che una produzione meno lo-fi potrebbe dare risultati più coraggiosi, visto che oltre confine, tra Austria e Germania, tra future-pop e synth-electronica ci sono eserciti ben più agguerriti. music @ myspace/gripweed

Synthpop and new-wave are the rule, via drumming and sequencer (particularly groovy on almost-aggressive closure of Trigger). Gripweed, from south italy, look like abiding with a sensitive melodic line, dance-floor soft electronica, soft altough dirty in guitars, energic bass lines and syncopated beats. Cristian Rosa's vocals stay clean, no need virtuosity, - even if some special fx would enrich in being more phisychal. Happy End - last track - calls at its best the traditional coordinates of genre with dark spirit, - and You can also hear a fairly good attention for song-writing. - I believe that a less lo-fi production would render more creative outcomes, seen that right overthere, in Austria as well in Germany, - between future-pop and synth-electronica there are even fiercer armies. - music @ myspace/gripweed
