I have been waiting for the day in which stylishly chic Ukrainian duo the Bloom Twins busted out with new material. So taken had I been with their previously striking efforts and of course their big alternative-pop spine tingler “Blue”.
This is all part and parcel of what happens when you latch onto the early beginnings of a band. In that they put some feelers out in taster material to gauge the public’s reaction and then quite a number are never to be heard of again. For a choice few it’s a different story and in keeping a watchful eye of the noir pop girls of the Bloom Twins, I knew they were in it for the long haul. In their circumstances they just needed to amass an armoury of material before they plotted out their assault on our audio senses with their impressionably haunting off-kilter tuneage.
Besides, aside from their music endeavours sisters Anna and Sonia also got signed up as models, no surprise there as they have certainly been blessed of the looks.
In their new music silence, they have actually been incredibly busy and the most exciting news I last heard, was that they were supporting Duran Duran on the UK arena leg of their ‘Paper Gods‘ tour.
By far the most exciting development coming out of the above though, is confirmation that Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes has come on board in a recording and producing capacity on the ladies upcoming debut album, due to arrive later this year.
This news is giving me chills!
This time out we know that the girls are both committed to the cause and are seriously in their element of dealing out highly evocative, fashioned pop. And in so doing, they’re relaunching with new track “Amnesia”.
Heavy on the pop theatric’s “Amnesia” is cinematic, almost silverscreen epic in its stance. So much so that it’s dynamically going off tick, tick BOOM for me, like a Bond movie theme, or a spy thriller! So evident is the Nick Rhodes involvement in here.
So much of this grandly opulent track I wish to you experience first-hand for yourselves, but I cannot round up before revealing that the girls vocals take on a seductively smoldering aesthetic as “Amnesia” nears it’s end.
I don’t have any further credit information at my disposal from the press release but I have a rousingly sneaking suspicion that there’s a small cameo backing vox from Simon Le Bon. I maybe way off mark, but you got to admit it’s a plausible assumption even if I’m totally barking up the wrong tree of thought. Maybe it’s Nick Rhodes himself hmmm, definitely Duran Duran of origin me thinks.
Stonking track though! Immense and MASSIVE!
WOW just WOW!
