That for reasons of ill-feeling from France relocates to Norway, I can understand that. The slightly sweet life in Brittany against the exchange in the wilderness of Scandinavia is a cultural balancing act, which is reflected both in the only on second glance very cool cover, and in the music of entertainer NETRA. In any case it is one that works well. This second NETRA album "Sørbyen" of epic 70 minutes combined, the shimmering, raw guitars of black metal with relaxing trip hop beats and sad keyboard melodies, keifige vocal outbursts with little shaky but authentic clear vocals, bleak urban melancholy with the wide expanse lonely snowy landscape - just Basque beret with arctic temperatures. It comes in combination ("A Dance With The Asphalt"), with rather hard focus ("Streetlamb Obsession"), in almost purely electronic ("It's Kicking In"), instrumental with beautiful, post rock floating guitars ("emlazh") or with big choruses ("Wish She Could Vanish"). Naturally, I prefer not help but sometimes think of ALCEST is so wrong but stylistically. NETRA oriented more example ULVER the days of "Perdition City" or even "The Marriage Of Heaven Hell," in part the arrangements remember quite clearly to older PLACEBO ("crawl"). Always like to put, because it works so great: playful effects and long speech samples with a thoughtful content - here trilingual in French, English and Norwegian. Thematically you take NETRA So the sometimes desperate loneliness from rather than some black metal misanthropes. The talks, in any case, that faster, harder and evil need not always be the first choice when it comes to the term pessimistic outlook on life.How do you work in any case still could be, the relative plastic-like sound that comes to hear their own homes. For the drum parts would certainly be a carnal drummer are better, and in general could use a little more depth to the production and especially the vocals do very well.
