BOY HARSHER 'Careful'
One of the most potent new acts in the EBM/synth-pop/darkwave resurgence deliver an achingly well-sculpted, goth-veiled sophomore side. Moving in line with the music industry’s 30 year frame-of-reference phase shift, BOY HARSHER turn cues from mid-late ‘80s styles to their acutely emotive, aerobic purpose in ‘Careful’. If you’re looking for instant gratification, the strapping EBM arps and gynoid vox of "Come Closer" gives a strong indication of what to expect, while the likes of "Fate" and "LA" wickedly tap into a stream of Wax Trax!-styled industrial sauce, and "Tears" serves deliciously discordant synth tang along with the Italo-esque elan of "Lost". Properly satisfying charms for dance-pop goths, then.
