Boomkat Product Review:
Double Mixte’s ice cool, Johnny Jewel-produced synth-pop finally lands on vinyl via IDIB
Johnny Jewel clearly relishes the opportunity to dance on the darkside with ‘Romance Noire’, emphasising the Anne Clarke-like vocals and lustrous synths of Double Mixte’s Clara Apolit and Thomas Maan with the perfect measure of louche reserve, cinematic sci-fi wonder and sleazy drive in six parts.
You’d be forgiven for presuming Heinrich Mueller had a hand in two of the EP’s highlights, such is the quality of synth work in the nocturnal glyder ‘Arlette’ and its instrumental version, while the title tune’s purring EBM/electroclash bassline and biting point synth flare strongly recall Anne Clarke’s classic ‘Our Darkness’ via Visionia - also included as a lip-bitingly sharp beatless mix - and ‘November’ finds Clara channelling choirboy vibes on a backdrop of buoyant, bittersweet pads aching for a film to soundtrack, and also included as an instrumental.
