She Past Away – Narin Yalnızlık

Artist: She Past Away
Album: Narin Yalnızlık
Genre: Darkwave
Released: 2015

The Turkish darkwavers from She Past Away are back! No insider tip any more, the now almost three years old debut Belirdi Gece made a lot of people paint the dancefloor black all over Europe. Exactly these people are anxiously waiting to lay their hands on She Past Away‘s second longplayer Narin Yalnızlık.

At the first listen you can already hear that She Past Away abide by their style as we already know it from Belirdi Gece: Catchy synth loops, sleek bass and guitar and somber vocals. Interesting, when you think that since their debut the band almost had a complete line-up change behind it.

However, Narin Yalnızlık offers us another eleven very danceable tracks. Those of you who are already part of the She Past Away fan-base will definietely enjoy the new stuff. What else can say? The songs are more diverse than on Belirdi Gece, there’s more variety with up-tempo and slower pieces. The album begins with two fast songs, ‘Soluk’ and ‘Asimilasyon’, which appear like a continuation of Belirdi Gece. From then on the songs are more experimental and dare to also deviate from the familiar She Past Away-formula. Not too much, though.

I am yet undecided which song on Narin Yalnızlık is my favourite. The measured ‘Uçtu Belirsizliğe’ and the smooth ‘Yanımda’ are my candidates.

The last three years I played Belirdi Gece up and down and I am glad that there is finally a new She Past Away record to gorge.
