Copenhagen-based electronic artist Silent Cure struts stylish allure throughout their 12-track debut, An Electronic Jazz Punk Passage Through Dreams. Although electronic is the first genre listed in the title, the album provides a truly eclectic listening experience — spanning pop, jazz, rock, punk, and more. These diverse pursuits are accomplished with melodic charm in mind, treading beyond purely aesthetic endeavors.
As dreams are mentioned in the album title, a track like “So Annoyed” fits aptly. Dreamy vocals and a serene backing organ are joined by trickling guitars, as the vocals note “you seem annoyed by my face,” and other attributes. The lyrical discontent contrasts enjoyably with laid-back guitars and organs, resulting in a thoroughly consuming track with an enchanting feeling. In a different tonal spectrum, “Cyber-Punks Not Dead” conjures a nocturnal glow with its rhythmic pulsing, pursuing a dark industrial direction with a Burial-like dubstep allure. The panting vocal samples add further to the mystique. Other standouts include the melodic “Settimana A Diano Marina,” which shows an Italo-disco appeal, and the spacious “Symphony Octobre,” touting shades of Massive Attack.
