Belarusian Kosmodromm have now released their debut release as a free download on the label Synthematik. It’s in an EP format and it’s called nothing more than ‘Kosmodromm 1.0’.
Kosmodromm’s music is perhaps best described as dark synthpop where the singer Eiden Dark’s voice is very different from what we are used to. He’s voice is very dark and it sounds like he sings all the way down deep in his lungs. Perhaps a bit different, but it is actually very cool once you get used to it.
The EP focus mainly on two tracks, “Pustoj Gorod” and “Stalker” with a width selection of remixes. My favourites are the Radio Version of “Pustoj Gorod” and the Album Version of “Stalker. But you have a lot to choose from. The album ends with the beautiful instrumental piano tune called “Noch V Pripjati (Klavir)”. All and all, this EP fits perfectly with the grey winter landscape outside.
‘Kosmodromm 1.0’ is not perfect, but it’s different and that’s a rare thing within this genre. So if you want to experience something new I think you should go for it, you will not loose anything, since this album is available for free download.
