Neonsol - Another Day
Electro Danish/Canadian electropop group Neonsol have been hot on their heels for the past couple of years allowing the swell reception from Ecliptic to carry them forward. They've landed shows across the UK and Denmark, and even had a slot at the final Resistanz Festival in Sheffield, England. Aside from that the band has also released a single titled 'Citadel' that came along with a B-side remix from Leaether Strip. 2017 is seeing Neonsol return with a brand new EP Another Day

The title track of the EP started me off and the sensational vocals of Nina lo hit me like a brick, and even moreso when Jesepe lo chimed in for duel vocals during the chorus. Of course, the cyber electropop from the group was inspirational. In the hands of producer Fred Scarfone the track was put together wonderfully. 'Forever' turned out to be a darker but bouncier track, while 'Heat' provided infectious beats that will melt a dancefloor. 'The Garden' was the odd bunch out of all of these songs, providing an electro-ambient piece backed by intricate electronics and a solo set by Nina lo. 

Four remixes also came along with the EP starting with Rotersand's remix of 'Another Day'. Rotersand took the original dream elements of the song and turned it to an upbeat, still cybernetic electro jam. ESA came along and gave a unique spin on 'Heat', aptly calling it the 'Hotter Than Hell Remix'. ESA provides his own vocals, his traditional rhythmic noise and techno inspirations, and crafted a blasting remix. Coming from their album Ecliptic, Neonsol had 'Manipulation' get a 'Gelting Remix'. The result is a science fiction, sci-fi based remix of the track whose ambient textures were awe inspiring. The final song on the EP is a rework of another Ecliptic song 'Lights Out'. Dubbed 'Mk. II', the breakbeat influenced track sounds better than ever with enhanced percussion, electro rhythms, and overall angst. 

Another Day is another fantastic showing from Neonsol. Their addictive electro rhythms, amient touches, and overall futuristic touch keeps them as a driving force in the European electronic scene. Backed up by a record label who pushes their artists to grandeur, there's no stopping these guys. Check'em out if you haven't yet, and if you have then there's no reason as to why you're not buying this yet.

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.
