I've ben kinda hooked to this brief release by The Ropes (NY) in last times, Sadness Is the Rich Man's Drug, 3 piece EP. Think of tints of Blouse, Broadcast, New Order. Catchy and sensual synth/noise pop, tuneful sensibilities from 80s nostalgia. Danceable and obscure. Guitars, drum machines. Sharon Shy's vocals are haunting, firm and algid, yet, so charming. The main track is also a lovely video, somehow macabre and hypnotic. Simply perfect in its sinister vibe. Now ears and soul ready, press play (and download, nameyourprice).
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
