Review: Desdemona – ‘Endorphins’
Poland’s Desdemona quite simply look and sound great with their female fronted industrial rock formula. Having been around since 1996 but they’ve endured hard times in recent years with line-up changes and their singer Agnieszka having a serious accident that landed her in intensive care last year. All of which has delayed their long-awaited fourth studio effort and début on Danse Macabre records.
The albums is well worth the wait though. Full of great guitar riffs, dance floor beats and soaring vocals the band have world domination in their sight, and from here it looks achievable. Songs like lead single ‘Bring In All’, as well as the likes of ‘Poison’, ‘Devil’s Game’, ‘In Flames’ and ‘XXX’ are crammed full of club hit potential utilising rock, industrial, ebm and even dubstep influences to great effect.
The production and mixing cleverly and effectively balances the hard dance beats with the grittiness of the guitar riffs and solos, while the electronics and vocals sound crisp and clean giving the band a wider sense of appeal. An appeal which should be pretty much guaranteed anyway from the strength of the band’s song writing alone.
‘Endorphins‘ is a very strong step forward for the band and will likely see them spread their wings beyond central Europe and possibly further if they continue to push hard in this direction. Let’s hope they can follow up on this sooner rather than later.
