So French Records are at it again with the pristine releases, after we recently touched on Moosak’s Skull’s Empire LP, full of French Electro influences and sweet jams and riffs. This time however they bring us Matthew Bauer’s Night Demons, a brutal sounding synthwave album perfect for your Halloween playlist or just about anything else for that matter!
The album opens with Cold Touch – think Kavinsky crossed with an 80s TV theme tune, before eerily moving into tension-based tracks like Cruise Control and Fading Lights. The title track however comes into a category of its own, feeding us synthwave grooves and haunting organs until our guts explode…
Projects and Ritual keep the theme going, with the first track being a steady buildup to the climax of the second track. We like it. Lastly though is Your Heart Is An Ocean, which is quite the emotional synthwave track, rounding of the LP quite nicely.
