Album Review – Coldair – ‘The Provider’ (Alternative)

Coldair - The ProviderBy Michael Smith – 3.5/5 Dragons
From February 2016 Vandala Magazine 

The vocals are dramatically delivered with a cold softness, and synth lines are dark and distinctively mysterious. The band demonstrates their talent for crafting Depeche Mode style electro rock, with less of the boisterous power of the Gahan/Gore song writing style and more of ashen skepticism. The album follows from track to track as a thick black velvety liquid slowly making its way down a solid white television screen. The entire album creates an achromic aura throughout, something very prominent isn’t the electro-rock of the late 90’s, without carrying the sense of future embarrassment that seemed to overhang most of the late 90’s.
