During a long period of absence Athens-based trio, Film, took advantage of time in order to experiment on new material. Their comeback with a brand new album, called “Eclipse”, will be a pleasant surprise for those who are familiar with their music so far, but also those listening to it for the first time.
“Eclipse” starts with a big leap in a dark and spacey synth storm, moving on deconstructing progressively its dark foundation without losing its melodic thread and pop influences. Haunting sci-fi disco moments, gender bending otherworldly vocals, a vision through crystal lens, dominated by legendary analogue synth sounds based on an hybrid electronic/instrumental rhythm section, sometimes abstract and other times massive and epic. “Eclipse” is a look back to the 80’s electronic era through a wet window screen in black and white. Wet, deep and cinematic, minimal and modernistic at the same time, the album is skillfully balanced between experimentation and melodic simple riffs.
“Eclipse” is out on cd, vinyl including bonus cd, cassette and digital album from Inner Ear.
