The Society - Tears [Single] (2017) - Review

Band: The Society
Title: Tears [Single]
Release date: 22 February 2017
Label: Self-Released

Tracklist:
01. Tears

The legendary drummer Paul Gilmartin is back with a brand new band called The Society. Paul is a well known name in the post-punk scene, mostly because he was member of the cult British band The Danse Society in the early 80s and left the band in January 2014. Now he returns to the scene with his new band named, guess what, The Society. This new band of his is bearing the true musical essence and the legacy that he adopted through the years. The debut single, "Tears", was just released and it really shows Gilmartin's new act as a post-punk band of excellent quality. Beside Gilmartin behind the drums, the line-up of The Society is formed by Jonathan Cridford (vocals), Elliot Wheeler (guitar), Ade Clarke (bass) and Darran Guy (synth).

When I heard the music my first impression was that this is excellent! The quality and experience of the members is undeniable. You can feel the claw and the passion. The singer is in my point of view very interesting and differential from what we are used in post-punk. After seeing the promo video, I was sure that Paul Gilmartin was right in choosing his partners and especially in choosing the singer. Jonathan Cridford with his sweet, kind of a "lost boy" voice, plus the theatrical performance that expresses the feeling of music in his body language is perfect. Congrats for that, I'm seeing a great potential and I’m looking forward for a stylish post-punk album from The Society in the near future.

p.s. You can check out the “Tears” music video which was filmed and produced by Martin Aylward at this location. The single is also available to download for free on Bandcamp.

Band: The Devil & The Universe
Album title: Benedicere
Release date: 8 December 2015
Label: Rustblade Records

The Devil & The Universe have evolved into spheres where only absolute darkness is the limit and their musical output is hard to describe, they call it goat wave, but in truth you'll find here dark/ritual ambient, symphonic music, psychedelia, minimal wave, cold wave, xy wave, industrial parts and yet much more, everything composed in a way that it feels just like listening to a perfect soundtrack that could fit fine to any kind of 70s occult horror movie. Benedicere is an occult drama, an adventure, a refined and accurate ritualistic experience, magick and mayhem, order and chaos, a dark cinematic murky masterpiece.
