Beware, here's some 'Lights Towards The Exit'.

Were we spoilt by the single, 'Friday' (see review HERE)?  I must admit, I did think we were for a while but the remaining tracks of Atelier's album,'Light Towards The Exit' are a beautiful mix of soft and dark; check the album cover of hard metal escalator with discarded rose which is a bit of a reflection of their soul/electronic/industrial sound.

Atelier is the South African duo Alexander Inggs and Jaś Miszewski who now live in Berlin with a collection of analog synths, drum machines and electronics.

The recent compilation on Compost Records,  'Future Sounds Of Kraut Vol. 2 Compiled by Fred und Luna' (see review HERE) is like a foundation course in 'Lights Towards The Exit' - and throw in some soulful/warped Depeche Mode and some more leftfield club culture and intriguing it is.
'Miss You' and 'Talk To Her' are more immediate whilst 'Metal Head', a sutble 'Trans Europe Express' seems far too short.  Whilst on the high(er) speed track, expect 'Honeysucker' as the next single.

Berlin based label run Lossless have got themselves unoubted talents with Atelier and then is light at the end of the tunnel.
