Mechatronic - Promises From The Past
Futurepop Swedish Mechatronic is Wilhelm Äretun and Emma Hortlund and they release their debut album on their own record company SpaceLab Records.

The music agrees with today's futurepop with a little bit of soft EBM and sounds pretty good, but unfortunately only sometimes. Some melodies and notes you find fulfilling but in the whole part it's kind of a boring and not so stimulated production were I have some problems with Williams voice. Maybe they should try Emma in the front and see how that works?

Sure, you hum along pretty easy with the second track "Come to me" and the fifth track "Imaginary Friends", but unfortunately that's all you find on this twelve track long album and the two mentioned songs disappear and become forgotten with the all daily and sometimes bad songs like "Vampire küsst man nicht".

Sad, but true.
