3D - Ugly Nature
Synthpop Already gaining somewhat of a following with their debut EP, I Wanna Riot, 3D comes back in full force with this three track EP, Ugly Nature. Synthpop in nature, the electronic circuit might want to keep an eye out for a future hit from this duo.

Ugly Nature starts off the EP with a nice little electronic exchange focused around ecstasy laced vocals (in a sense, the man singing sounds like he's enjoying himself a little too much). Nothing like getting a high from your own music, and a certain energy is created that's both passionate and fun at the same time, which made a fun song to listen to.

City@Night slowed down the pace and the vocals took on a more melancholy tone. Perhaps the intro was a bit down in comparison to when the synth really hits around the fifty second mark. When it goes away, a certain tangible element is missing, but that's what makes the chorus so special. It arrives again with each passing and makes the chorus just magical.

I Confess is the last song on the release. Trying something a bit different, the vocals go down deeper in pitch. It's humorous to listen to, but I'm none too sure if they should go forth with this accent. Otherwise, the beat was nice, and had a nice little rhythm going for it.

Now, as a first time listener to this band, I am impressed. Though this may be a work-in-progress in fine tuning their sound to really get a fanbase going, I liked it. Can't say I loved it, as that's reserved for releases that can really get me going, but this is one act I'm keeping my eye on from now on.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
