EP single from this bouncy, poppy, 'darkwave' band. I quite like their music.
It's dancy and fun and inoffensive. I have a hard time labelling it as Goth,
even though they're on the Darkbeat label. If you're into
'CandyGoth' then go buy.
I fail to understand why bands like this associate themselves with Goth. I'm
sure they could be more successful by avoiding the label. By all accounts, the word
'Goth' is a music industry blink-tag. If you sneaked naked
into a record executive's office, and steal all of his pencils...
you'd never be noticed, provided you were wearing around your neck a big sign
which said 'GOTH!'
So why do
not run screaming from the Goth label? Perhaps it's
the sub-culture. This place is home for them, and they like it that way.
The surprising thing is, they do fit in.
