Synchropath - Distance Hurts The Numb Ones
Electro, Industrial So here we have an electro industrial act from Poland I've never heard of but I was able to track down some information about them.

It started out as a one man project, and this particular EP was self released and marked the debut for Synchropath. They appeared on several compilations and has since been working their way up getting closer and closer to a full fledged debut long player. As of now, they consists of six full time members.

'Distance Hurts The Numb Ones' is an EP containing six tracks of fairly straightforward electro with some amount of experimentation. Most of the tracks have a lush warm feel to them with a nice melody underneath. But the problems reveal themselves too soon, and it's pretty obvious that the main flaw is lack of variation. All the songs just becomes a bit to alike each other. What saves the record is the fact that it's an EP, a whole album of this would be an overkill. While some bands an artists nail it on the first record, this EP gives us a hint that this is something that needs a little more time and experience to evolve.

It's the sort of music that just becomes background music even if you sit down and just focus on the music, it's unable to draw your attention for more than a couple of minutes at a time. Still, it's not bad, it's just boring. I'm sure their next release will be something bigger and better, seeing that they've had a massive contribution to the line up, and probably a whole lot more creativity as well.

I guess this review is kinda like an EP, but there's really not much more to say. It's not bad enough to hate, but it's not good enough to love. It's just there.
