The 80s was a special time for rock music as the aftermath of punk in the late 70s resulted in bands reinventing rock music by infusing many different musical styles into traditional rock forms inspired by world music, the avant garde and also more significantly, the technological advances in synthesisers.
SINGLE REVIEW: JET NOIR – A COLD DAY IN HELL WILL BRIGHTEN YOUR DAYSINGLE REVIEW: JET NOIR – A COLD DAY IN HELL WILL BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY
Labelling herself as “electronic progressive goth”, Jet Noir is not too far from the truth. Her sound and vision is true to her artistic intent. Nothing is out of place on this darkly invigorating single. Her sensual spoken word verses segue seamlessly into slinky refrains as images of flickering horror flash before your eyes. Yet there’s an inclination to slow dance your way through this electro piece mesmerised by its insistent beats and arrangements – “The grayness is coming/It’s walking the streets”.
The perfect single for your Halloween predilections, if so inclined.
There are three remixes to consider as well, each one delivers a different perspective but at its core, “A Cold Day in Hell” remains arresting.
Her E.P. The Hall of Ghosts is coming soon. One to keep an eye out for.
