July 14 // Albums Of The Month

25.7.14




White Hex appeared in the world for the first time in 2012 with their promising EP “Heat”, a very impressive eye opener to an apparently bright future for the duo that consists of Jimi Kritzler (Slug Guts) and Tara Green, hailing from Melbourne, Australia and self-describing their music as “tropical-goth”.


The second time around White Hex came up with an even more imposing record. “Gold Nights” is a change-up towards more minimal electronics, leaning much closer to synth pop than post punk. In their own words White Hex don’t forget to mention Whitehouse, Arthur Russell, Craig Leon and Gianni Rossi as influences, as well as their love of italo disco, minimalist techno and the 1980’s German underground. “Gold Nights” is dark pop music at its best, a fascinating album from start to finish. In this alluring blend of vintage synths, sharp drum machine beats and bewitching vocals I found a new favourite record. Lasts less than half an hour long but stays with you for way much longer.
