Berlin Black / Press
“There is a glam rock flavour on every song of this release (especially on the mix of “The Only Ones”) which leaves a sweet taste to the listener”
"...It's refreshing to see songcraft and style together under the banner of hairspray and black leather - one to watch.."
“They define themselves as post-punk, but when founding member and lead singer Chris Tuke (also ex-Screaming Banshee Aircrew) sings, it’s like David Bowie and Robert Smith have climbed inside him, done something unspeakable and the audible result is his tormented yet distinctly dulcet tones, singing some darkly memorable lyrics.”
“The band’s most recent EP ‘The Only Ones’ is a highly polished effort which sounds a bit like what might have happened had the Sex Pistols been tutored in how to actually play musical instruments by The Cure. Which for me is a pretty sumptuous thought.”
“You will fall in love with keyboard background here and certainly remember about cold synth-sounds of early 80’s. You may think about Joy Division and Movement era of New Order parallels as well, but it isn’t the most important thing at all. This track is wonderful in all aspects and you will catch it uniqueness first time you hear it.”
“... ‘Fall Apart’ follows, a stand-out piece of songwriting. Synth and bass are married in slow, deliberate pace, livened by a vocal line and chorus so catchy it could easily sit on the pop charts. This is one song which will stick in your brain and be quite happy to stay... ”
““dust of your blue PVC platforms, polish your safety pins and get ready to become totally obsessed with Berlin Black.””
“think Adam Ant and Bowie’s baby growing up with a Yorkshire accent”
"blinded by glitter is the only way to go"
