Electro-Pop duo Avoid-A-Void, consisting of composer Rico and singer Falo, are willing to present their second album “Musique Noir” this autumn through Echozone. The new opus brings some fresh new music into the electro- and future pop scene and ties seamlessly on the success of the the band’s first album called “Abyss Desires”. Some tunes of the new album had already been played during their gigs last summer and boosted the expecta-tions of the fans into heights.
Out officially on 26th October, “Musique Noir” sounds more experimental than its predecessor. Already the first song, whom is the title track coincidently, presents an arbitrary aura within mystical and obscure electronic sounds. “Myself Within” reveals as one of the album’s emphatic songs with its charismatic vocals by Falo and become plainly an electropop hymn.
The strong 4/4 beat in “S Got Kryptonite” makes that track to one of the hardest of “Musique Noir”. “Flowers” is a quiet song with a melancholic note and catchiness. Finally “Love Was Dead” represents a dark love tragedy with an intensive sound.
Rico and Falo have created an awesome opus with a great joy of playing. With this album, Avoid_A-Void will grow up further in the electro pop scene.
Believe Player for Avoid-A-Void
“Abyss Desires“ is Rico’s and Falo’s first album of their new project Aviod-A-Void although they have already played in various other bands (e. g. Silver & Gallery of Fear) for years.
The album reflects a period of development of 10 years which has only now attained full maturity in form of these 12 album songs standing comparison with other genre bands.
The appeal of “Abyss Desires“ lies in its sophisticated electronic arrangements skillfully combining retro-sounds, EBM to mid-tempo beats and atmospheric bodies of sound and forming a homogenous symbiosis by means of Falo’s singing as well as the subtle or ironic lyrics.
Drawing comparisons with Depeche Mode, Camouflage and De/Vision is quite appropriate, but cannot question Avoid-A-Void's individuality. The compositions show that they have been implemented with a certain sobriety without having to jump on each and every latest trend. The fact that straight dancefloor songs like "Deja Vu" as well as wonderfully melancholic Electro Pop songs like "A Hell Of Heaven" and pulsing Future Pop song like "Ignorant" or "If We Were One" have found a place on this album shows that with "Abyss Desires" the band succeeded in presenting a really well done Electro Pop album.
