Suicidal Romance - Burning Love / Remember Me
Electro When I travelled to Stockholm to go to the Bodyfest festival a few weeks ago, I had a long rant for my friend Torny about EP's with two or three new tracks, and a million remixes to fill it out. I truly hate those releases and I guess I have to honor my rant since the latest Suicidal Romance EP 'Burning Love / Remember Me' follow that exact standard, one in many during the last few years.

There's two new tracks here, easily figured out by the EP title, but for those who are a bit slow, the new tracks are "Burning Love" and "Remember Me". You might think for yourself "Oh, so it's a single with an A-side and a B-side, how nice". No. it's not. You forgot about the remixes and there are 10 of them. TEN!

I would like to take a minute to reform the tracklist for you right now.
1. Burning Love
2. Remember Me
3. Burning Love (Nemaier Remix)
4. Remember Me (Diversant 13 Remix)
Done. That would be enough. The new original tracks and the best two remixes of the two tracks.

What about the new tracks then? Sure, the production is great, the sound is great, the female vocals are great, but somehow, it feels tired.

It does not happen that much in "Burning Love", the beat and melodies are very static and even though the vocals are fine, it simply passes me by without I really noticing it. It's like having the TV on when you are at home, doing something else. It's company, but you will not remember what was on.

The slower "Remember me" is a bit better. Dmitry's harsher vocals in the verse to mix it up a little and the song feels more dynamic than its predecessor. This one is good and worthy to end up on an album (and here I thought Suicidal Romance was cancelled?). You want to check out the Diversant 13 remix of it, since it's actually better than the original track, and possibly the Kant Kino remix as well; they are both good and solid remixes.
