Lust for Youth - Lust for Youth

Copenhagen duo’s latest self-titled effort treads on the same waters as the sprawling 2016 release, Compassion, with the tried and tested formula of muscular, melodic synth-pop compositions they're known for and the beat thumps harder, resembling the 90's Europop with equal finesse and skill. Opener New Balance Point has the propulsive kick to it as it slips through the second colossal track, Insignificant, with a building synth crescendo at its outro, taking cues with their contemporaries (i.e., Depeche Mode, Pet Shops Boys). Dance floor ready Venus di Milo finds the band at its most sentimental, as it slowly spins on a multilayer of vocal melodies paired with Hannes Norrvide's urgent delivery of words inspired by the ancient Greek statue.

Elsewhere, Great Concerns consistently blends their signature post punk sound with dark, steady electro pulse as it glides slowly to Fifth Terrace, featuring the vocals of Soho Rezanejad, is a welcomed affair. Closer By No Means ends the record on a reflective note

With one foot on their past and the another on the future, they yet again succeed in crafting their most lush production yet as it descends into the abyss of darkness with a sliver of light, peaking through.
