Tears From The Night Sky Synthpop, EBM Dreams Divide Ever since the teaser single launched in preparation for the release of this album, Dreams Divide has been on my radar. The duo featuring David Crout and Gem Davison provide alternative dance music that fans just keep on going on about. And, Tears From The Night Sky is the ten track album that calls to their fans and gives out a forty three minute album that you can easily tango to. Our Creationbegins off this love fest, taking inspirations from a bunch of different dance filled electronic genres; from futurepop, to a bit of EBM, with lots of love to trance, the track gives us their all in one go. The vocals between both Crout and Davison were cracking, and when they come in unison, the song really thrashed forward. The title track, Tears From The Night Sky continues forth the dance rhythm, letting go the longer synth notes and allowign shorter bursts of sci-fi fused electronics to parade on through. The album version of Trashed sounded pretty similar to the original version; if anything, it packs more of a punch. The little chimes and higher pitched notes that come across in LIP shine nicely, especially since the verses are quieter in nature than the chorus. It was slower, but more emotional than prior songs. The Home Coming picked the pace right back, finding the two vocalists once more singing in unison, and, my God, do they shine when they sing together. Alone, they're good, but, together they just form a powerhouse. A little more EBM fused, Room With A View still packed a very nice hit. Skydive hit in with more trance elements that made it pop out a bit more, made it a little more fun. Alpha Male put back in shorter notes with a bit of a spread between them, allowing each note to absorb into your ears before the next one struck. A nice little build up followed through with Filth, and the piano work and the vocal work on this track made it stand out emotionally once more. The final track on the album, Heaven Comes To Get You, did have a bit of an 80s ring to it; I noticed that flair in the album previously, but more so on this track than before. And, with that said, Dreams Divide delivered another swell performance. Ten tracks of music that you can get up to and dance along to went well with me and I think I'm gonna start it up again for another listen. The album is all around fun, and there's no way you can't have a good time while getting through it. Check it out. 450

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.
