Witterings from an old indie kid
I have been enjoying the EPs released this year by one man outfit Холодный звонок which roughly translates as Cold Calling. His (Dmitry Scherbakov) music is on the poppier side of coldwave and there are four synth-pop tracks here including two cover versions of originals by – well I haven’t a clue to be honest. The songs are energetic and lively despite being resplendent with words sung in a dour vocal style. However I think that adds to the charm as demonstrated on Дела which is my pick of the tracks on offer.
