Dreamside, The - Mirror Moon
A fairly classical mixture of Goth Rock and Wave-y Pop is what THE DREAMSIDE have adopted as their style. "Mirror Moon" by now is the third album of the band around Dutch/Italian singer-songwriter Kemi Vita and my first contact with THE DREAMSIDE.

Elements you can find in their sound are Dance-Floor-Beats just as well as a violin, which brings an interesting flair to songs like "Above Below Ground". The defining stilistics of this albums are electronic beats, angelic vocals and a few guitars, which lie between Goth and Wave.

Altogether the songs are quite catchy, but they won't really stick to your memory, they somehow lack the truly memorable passages, which can give an album so much...

Good stuff to dream along, in a darkened room, maybe with one or two candles, but nothing for active listening...
