rock, new wave, dance, electronic.
4 words. and iam still speechless. Talking Shadows EP from the band Of The Opera has captured me, and sent me a note to come back home. this EP is a captivating piece spawning sounds that track similar to New Order, Depeche Mode, and little hints of the Pet Shop Boys. the high soft vocals, and the playing of every instrument is melted all over the masterfully crafted lyrics and underlying synth playing, almost hypnotizing and enrapturing. the EP is 5 tracks long and feels no less than so. every song being over 3 minutes and truly awesome with the longest clocking in at 6 minutes and 7 seconds. if i could overly stress to buy an EP i have reviewed ever, next to COMING and the new AKW… i must STRESS to you that this EP NEEDS to be in your iTunes.
Wander With the Night is my favourite, despite loving this whole EP that song just strikes me every single time. Talking Shadows is in a close second, followed by Bell Tower.
this EP is in my top 3 out of 20 for favourite EP of 2013. and gets a 5 out of 5. get this EP, follow these guys! you will NOT regret it!
