Adore Industrial Rock, Electrorock Miss FD I believe that we have covered and reviewed Miss FD enough times for our audience to be familiar with her work at this point. If not, you can head to the search icon above, click on it, and can read through the various reviews and news articles we have posted about her in the past. Anyway, Miss FD's latest sees her traveling into somewhat new territory with "Adore". Foregoing her traditional gothic and industrial rock influences as seen in previous releases, the EP places Miss FD in the realm of cyberpunk-inspired electro territory. Rather than floundering in this newfound sound, Miss FD finds herself comfortable in a net of electrifying beats. 'Electric' kicks off the EP with crunchy dark synth sounding lines. Her voice is as gorgeous as ever, containing a bare minimum echo. There's a definite dancefloor feel to her song, but not one that's meant for brightly lit clubs. This is meant for darkened unions and, as a fan of the recently released Cyberpunk 2077, would have fit perfectly on that soundtrack. I also found myself staring at the face of pop-influences on the single. What I also appreciate about 'Electric' is that it does not maintain the same beat or rhythm over time, but rather develops itself. Adore - EP by Miss FDA buzzsaw of electronics make themselves known during the opening of 'Stronger' before breaking into a bit of a minimal track. Seemingly inspired by the likes of EBM, each punchy beat makes me want to stomp along. Even as I write this review sitting at my computer, I find myself bobbing my head and tapping my feet to the beat unconsciously. The motivational lyrics also make sense in the song considering Miss FD made this EP inspired by fitness training and pole dance choreography. Simple, but inspirational, this track will easily find its way into my own personal playlist for weightlifting sessions. The last track on the EP, 'Adore', is a dark dance number complete with dirty synths. The underlying basslines remind me of underground techno, and the experimental computer sound effects within the song give it a further sci-fi edge. While this territory is new for Miss FD, it is a more than welcome romp through pulse-pounding electronics and dreary club beats. If she does continue in this direction, I can easily see Miss FD joining the ranks of phenomenal dark synth producers like Sierra as fan favorites. For now, I can only wish that a full-length album in this vein will follow. Eight out of ten! This review was commissioned through our Ko-fi page. 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.
