Electrovot - Elegant Love
Synthpop, Futurepop With a solid release back in 2011 via Remote Music with Turning Point, Mexican based electro, EBM, and synthpop musicians Electrovot are back with their latest release, Elegant Love. Trying to create an emotional blend of music that focuses on humanities as well as their own personal struggles, Electrovot has formed a ten track release that comes off pretty decent.

Saving My Soul hits off the album with a fairly jumpy EBM track that displays the lead vocalists smooth vocals. Pretty straightforward, but a nice song. Find Me gives off a few more electronic effects, displaying a better feel for electronic sounds than standard EBM.

Plus One was stated to be one of the stand out songs in the press release, and I agree with that statement. While the previous two tracks didn't do much for myself, this song's blend of soft EBM, a lovely synth line, and introduction of gorgeous female vocals to back up the already decent chords created a lovely track.

Elegant Love, the title track, came up next. Though I would have liked to see more synth work (as the parts with the synths turn out to be the highlights of the song and very much beautiful), the final minute of the song worked wonders for me.

Heal the Blind sounds like something Jesus would have done, and came out faster and more atmospheric than the previous songs. Calling Out followed trend, and Perfection hit out a few keys that worked well on its own.

Breathe had a wonderful introduction before sort of falling into the same pit as the rest of the tracks. Still well done and inspiring, though. And, I suppose the same can be said for both History and Now I'm Gone.

And, well, while this wasn't outstanding by any measure, it was fairly well done. What I do like about this act is that their sound isn't shit quality, and that they also know how to put together a song in a clean format. However, I think they need to innovate a bit more. I can easily get into their tracks, but I can't help but feel as if a lot of them follow each other's foot steps in all too familiar fashion. I did start to get distracted about half way through the album by the simplest of things, which is never a good sign. However, songs such as Plus One showed signs of greatness from this act, so I really look forward to what they can pump out next.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
