ALBUM: Come Together (Digital Single)
LABEL: Metropolis Records
REVIEWER: Matthew J.
This digital single previews Informatik's next full-length album with a brand new track that continues their new direction, as established on last year's Beyond album, away from melodic EBM and toward a catchy pop-tinged industrial rock. Title track "Come Together" is dark but quick-moving, a definite pick for the dance floor thanks to its smooth bass line and catchy chorus; both band members also contribute club-oriented remixes, with Tyler Newman's version taking a buzzing techno approach and Da5id Din's mix opting for a darker, more EBM-influenced take. There's also a new mix of ethereal synthpop ballad "Don't Be Afraid" from the last album, and, best of all for fans, the exclusive song "Bottom Feeder," a crunchy guitar-backed offering that recalls some of the bitterness and edge of the band's earlier material while retaining the hooks of their current aesthetic. A promising hint at what's to come, this single is sure to keep fans happy and dance floors moving.
