Review: Adviruz – A Place to Hide

Label: Pavillon36 Recordings
Catalog No: P36-054

Dark, seductive beats encircle the new release from Adviruz. They form the base to an electronic nightmare, a bad night at a club. The kind of night where you can’t remember anything the next day except the good music. The instrumentation is impressive. Though Pýnar Gürcan, the main hub of Adviruz, made the mistake of singing. Though she does have a very beautiful singing voice, she needs to find a different style in which to present it. Her voice does not always mix well with the industrial beats and electronic melodies. At times it sounds like Katherine Blake trying to sing madrigals at a Skinny Puppy show. In the latter half of the album her voice fits much better.

In any case, it is a good release and I recommend it. If anything, listen to their cover of the Darth Vader Theme from Star Wars. They took the ominous orchestral movements and made it a glitch pop march. Very entertaining.

Standout track: Owls
