For Women’s History Month (and International Women’s Day) we present our Fem Vox series, where we highlight and appreciate female artists, female fronted bands, or tracks with guest female vocals. You won’t find the obvious legends in this mix!
As we keep exploring the Goth/Wave revival we are going to focus our eyes to the Lone Star State of Texas where recently it has become quite the cradle for goth friendly music projects like Twin Tribes, This Cold Night, and Lions in Winter. But I want to focus on a talented duo that has gone under the radar at least in the states and that is the Darkwave duo of Sky Lesco and Manuel Lozano under the name of Tearful Moon.
Deathrock might have been invented in the U.S., or some may see it as the West coast American response to Goth. But it's clear that after the 2000’s deathrock revival you need to look to South America and Europe for the best deathrock acts.
And it's in Chile where the recent rise of Goth/Wave has birthed one of the best Deathrock bands of this decade. Diavol Strâin has been taking the scene by storm lately with their unique and visceral hybrid of deathrock and darkwave.
