about

Powerful Electro Pop deeply rooted in Europe's New Wave - bleak, driving and real!

Coldkill has an aura of melodic melancholia. The Band has imposed strict self-restraints on their audio arsenal, limiting themselves to the sole employment of sounds that existed during the epoch they seek to emulate [1980ties]. Tis very minimal approach - bereft of modern-day multi-tracking or slick production tricks - evokes a sense of nostalgia unique unto itself.

Andi Harriman - Village Voice contributor, scene historian and author of "The Postpunk Project: Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace" has written: "(Coldkill) pays homage to the catchy, sticky sweet sadness of songs from our new wave record collections: the familiar favorites that console us when we need a good cry. (Their music) is a testament to their placement within the ancestry of synthpop: saluting the past while securing relevancy for the future."

Meanwhile, Adam at A Model of Control raves: "There is something wonderfully cool and detached in what Coldkill are doing, channeling the best moments of Covenant in particular. There are the distant, controlled vocals, precise drum programming and nagging synth hooks that come together to produce track after track of brilliant, post-futurepop. I'm really quite excited to hear the album now, as there has been nothing I haven't liked about their material so far."

Finally, videographer Lüke Haughwøut, of Mechanical Harvest and COMA Music Magazine, described the band's sound uniquely as: "it's like rediscovering an old band you'd never heard of before, or making out with your high school girlfriend all over again."
