Dark Electro Pop

Dark pop royalty, HVIRESS, cordially invite you to bite into their latest baroque single, Golden Apple

With the baroquely orchestral strings against the cinematically dark electro elements and HVIRESS bringing just as much alchemy to the mix vocally with their gothy occultist harmonies, Golden Apple is a bewitching triumph of a single from the dark pop duo.

If Emilie Autumn broke out of her Victorian anachronistic bubble and entered the realm of demure pop, the results would be equally as indulgent as the darkly imaginative single that also plays with tribal and apocalyptic themes.

You can watch the equally as artistic and obscure Lolita-style music video that premiered on February 11th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

ADT proves that ‘The Truth’ doesn’t have to be uncomfortable with his latest moody electro pop hit

Dark, brooding electronica with a serious hip hop influence, all speeding beats, thumping piano chords, and layered, effected vocals, ‘The Truth’ from ADT is bass-heavy electronic pop with a menacing undertone; if Dre and Eminem had produced Avicii, it might sound something like ADT on ‘The Truth’.

There’s an obvious Marshall Mathers quality to the vocal here, mixed up with a very techno 140 BPM drum pattern and rising instrumental section. It’s a proper, classy dancefloor anthem with a catchy chorus and a kick to the drop, atmospheric and immediately comfortable at the same time.

Check out ADT’s ‘The Truth’ on Spotify, and follow on Facebook.
