Vandal Moon is back with a new album, Black Kiss, featuring 10-tracks that bring us uptempo synths as well dark electronic rhythms that showcase the influence of the new wave, post-punk, synthpop and darkwave scenes of the early 80s and of bands like The Cure, The Chameleons, New Order, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Sisters of Mercy and The Psychedelic Furs.
Vandal Moon describe their album, “This is our first concept album. It’s the futuristic love story of two androids escaping enslavement and they have to do some unthinkable things to find that freedom. I won’t give too much of the story away, but it’s thematically a corollary about living life as a cog in a dystopian culture. So, this album functions as a concept record, but also as a personal expression of dread.”
Black Kiss is available today as a digital download from Bandcamp and in a limited-edition vinyl and cassette. There is also a new video for the track “Hurt” released via YouTube.
