Artesia – Hilvern

Prikosnovénie has started a new series of releases for new talents called “Nové”. Artesia is the first band to release in this series. This young French duo delivers a tragical and dark sounding classic gothic album. The sound is ethereal and romantic with lots of moody synth layers and some peaceful violin melodies.

On the one hand the music is quite good but on the other hand it is a bit cliché. I have to admit that this band has talent and knows what it does. It is just not very original.
But the musicians are still young. I will wait for their next release and hopefully by then they have found a style of their own. The talent is there.
