Boomkat Product Review:
Louche, cinematic synth-pop heat from Hamburg, courtesy of film director-turned musician Helena Ratka’s Pose Dia, debuting her new solo project aside from duties behind decks at the Golden Pudel and in Shari Vari
A fine debut statement ‘Front View’ channels Pose Dia’s other work, writing music for theatre, as well as her collaborative work with Sophia Kennedy in DJ duo Ratkat, into a pleasingly puckered but grotty and offbeat set of tunes that lean to the darkside but somehow with a bewitching pop tartness.
There’s a low key dancefloor ace tucked away in the swaggering tump and darting vocal of ‘Walking Running’, a killer echo of Toresch in the propulsive ‘Spacerine’, and again a murky sort of Tolouse Low Trax groove to ‘Get Up High’, and ‘Infinity Pool’ does a greasy swing groove with punky Hamburg finesse. But it’s really a whole thing to itself with narrative driven pieces like ‘Smoz Opera’ displaying Pose Dia’s wickedly droll lyrics at their best, bands helping the album play out like the soundtrack to a scuzzy night set in and bewitched by Hamburg’s unique atmosphere.
