In itself, it is a tragedy that it has taken the dynamic duo almost six years to craft a second album effort, because it is indeed a cracker! It is becoming more and more rare with albums that keep your finger off the skip button, but this definitely is one of those. Julia's angelic power vocals paired with Gehring's impressive technical and song writing know-how once again prove a mighty combination of melancholia and groovy electropop.
Engaging instrumentals, not just those annoying intros end outros, mix things up between outbursts of tech pop bliss. If you are unfamiliar with Technoir, I suggest you hunt down their first album as soon as possible, as it was released on the now defunct label Bloodline Records. Speaking of Bloodline, whatever happened to Klirrfaktor, another favourite band of mine?
