Lost tunes for a lost time, a doubtful, wistful, thoughtful dark wave manifesto, born in the very heart of lockdown. Resignation and fear, apathy and anger, sorrow and pain are no unknown variables in the equation of this Dutch wave wizard. However, in reverberation of a raging pandemic, they radiate an altogether different intensity.
“Brave New World”, “Lockdown” or “The Great Depression” are the names of these sermons for a nightmarish present, each and every one of them a monumental, dramatic, intimate track carrying the world on its shoulders albeit its introspective nature. Maybe this is also due to their time of creation but these new sorrowful songs are easily among the most intense moments in the long career of CLAN OF XYMOX – spearheaded by mighty manifestos of melancholy like “The Great Reset”. Here are songs like a cleansing shower of rain, like a light in the depth of night – “Limbo” is a rescue boat braving the flood tide of life.
