Electrogenic - Double Exposure
Electropop, Synthpop Italian based electropop/synthpop duo Electrogenic has their debut full length album "Double Exposure" releasing in just eight days. Being passed the album, I have listened to it several times since, and I can say that I am really, really enjoying the work Lacrisi and Stefan have crafted. 

Before I get to praising "Double Exposure", I would like to point out its main flaw. And that would be that their production value isn't that great, which is apparent from the starting track, 'Another Day'. It certainly doesn't ruin the album, but I do believe that crisper sounds would have made this album much, much better. 

However, other than that, I can't really complain all that much. From the starting 80s like sounds of 'Another Day' to the final slow moving and fairly cyber-esque track 'Grey Miles', Electrogenic has nailed their formula on their first shot. 

'Skills' offers a pretty straightforward electropop song, with a main driving beat backed by lovely synth work, and a bit of a charming electronic line. 'Game Over' shows off just how powerful LaCrisi's vocals can be, and 'Insane' quickens the pace up with a similar structure to 'Skills'. 

'Rise Up' takes a turn into a darker alley, providing a rougher song, with more emotional vocals from LaCrisi. 'The Deluge' took us right back into dancey synthpop territory, and wound up being one of the best songs on the album. 'Surrender', 'Home Again', and 'Lumnieyes' were all decent tracks, but sounded a bit redundant when paired next to previous tracks on the album. Nonetheless, I respected them for extending the album's length in a fun manner. Lastly, 'Grey Miles' hit, and it was the album's slow swan song. Just listen to it. 

Beyond that, the album was over (except for an attached radio edit of 'Skills'). I remember being impressed by Electrogenic's debut video for 'Game Over', but I still had my reserves for them. That being said, this duo was able to cast aside my fears and bang out an album that's damn well respectable. 

It comes out May 29th and will be available via their Bandcamp page.

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.
