Henric de la Cour - Henric de la Cour
Synthpop, Pop For most people, I'm sure Henric de la Cour is most known for his work with the iconic indie band Yvonne during the 90's and in the less recognized Strip Music that released two albums mid 00's. I have not paid any particular attention to any of the bands, but with Henric's debut solo album, it's time for the world to open their eyes and twinkle at probably the best album within the clash of electro and indie pop.

For some reason, I don't want to overanalyze every single track on this album; I want you to experience them by yourself. The fact is that what I experience, think and the memories string together with the music and vocals are going to be more than different than what you would experience, simply because this is an album that creates feelings and emotions more than happy feet's.

And just like with Kite (where one member of Strip Music is now), Henric de la Cour's sound is unique. Somehow Joy Division is shimmering by in my head, but the resemblance seems farfetched. Perhaps it's once again back to feelings and being unique. The sound is modern, yet waves a hello, rather than goodbye, to decades passed.

The album is ever-changing for me, when days pass by (yes, I've been listening to this album many times a day for a couple of weeks now) and with different moods allocated for different days, a track suddenly blossom. However, there's been a couple of tracks that I've given nothing but love since the first time I heard them, "Dracula", "Son of a Bitch", "Bedtime", "My Machine" and "Lovers".

Just like with Kite, I'm not sure this album is for everyone, but with the content of it, it's worth giving a try, because if this album is for you, you will taste a treat oh so sweet. This is as close a 10 a 9 could ever be.
