After the autumnal tranquillity of Owl & Penny yesterday, we thought we’d continue to ease you back into the world of work with another gorgeous and gentle tune, this time courtesy of Berlin’s JYLDA. Now, granted the title, “No Hope”, is not the most optimistic for the start of a New Year when resolutions have been made and (possibly) stuck to, but thankfully this is not a step into the inferno. Instead it is a smokey swirl of melody and digital delights.
Gianna Gehlhar’s voice is operatic at times at it rises up above the bare electronics. Gradually the component parts marble together, synths hum and dance with the beat and vocals. Our good friends at Poule d’Or likened it to the opening of a Bond movie and they are spot on. It’s all smoke and silhouettes, the faint undulation of body shapes with the chorus and a slight sense of danger and drama within the seduction; calming and exciting at the same time.
