Hailing all the way from Scandinavia Eternal death are the anti-pop stars that have forged their own version of Sweden’s electro pop that is full of grit, death and sparkling pop melodies. Consisting of, singer-songwriter Elin Berlin who critics have been calling ‘a hazy, 21 year old Dolly Parton’ and producer and songwriter Johan Angergard.
The synth pop group have found previous success with their critically acclaimed debut single Head, which saw the duo gain, support from the likes of Pop Justice and Indie Shuffle. Their most recent single Fade embodies the fluorescent pop tones of Robyn and gained enthusiastic support from The Line Of Best Fit. The Swedish musicians have since moved on to more traditional electro pop fare but it’s hard not to notice that there’s still an evocative undercurrent to their work.
Eternal Death returns with their latest single Violence taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album. Violence is a harsh, almost industrial witch house track that screams and shouts around the hauntingly atmospheric vocals of Elin Berlin. ?Between the sharp synth beats and Elin’s tender vocals, Violence might be considered a fun, or playful song that has elements of Young Galaxy and Kimbra but it’s really staring into the darkness.
This is credible pop at its finest; it’s rugged, evocative and a coolly modern piece of synth pop. Eternal Death is the perfect amalgamation of Verite, Austra and Human League whilst maintaining their own distinctive sound.
