Electro-girl, Emileigh Rohn, has finally released this debut
after an impressive promo EP. I was looking forward to this album, and
I am happy to report that I’m not disappointed.
This is a very well put together
album with the songs all placed in a good order. Emileigh is a very
talented artist really showing off her creativity and skills here. Not
only does she have a unique and nice singing voice, but she can also
create electronic music just as well as a lot of the bigger more established
acts in the scene.
This is a strong debut for her
that should gain her some well deserved recognition. There’s really
not a bad track offered here, and the originality and variety makes
for a refreshing release.
Basically, what Emileigh delivers
here are dark, cold and haunting electro-industrial songs with touches
of darkwave beauty and clubfloor energy. Well layered electro sounds,
effects and beats are placed over dramatically orchestrated soundscapes.
Emileigh mixes her singing with the music perfectly delivering both
moments of anger and moments of enchantment.
For the most part, the songs are
mid-tempo with Emileigh singing softly with melody. But from time-to-time
the music gets energy charged, and then Emileigh snarls with anger along
with it. She’s a very emotional and passionate singer that releases
a lot of moods and feelings here.
Everyhting here is interesting
and enjoyable to listen to. The music combines futuristic sci-fi sounds
along with heavy bass beats making for a creative audio journey. While
there’s a touch of darkwave to be heard here, this music never really
sounds gothic. It all sticks to the electro-industrial/dark EBM genre.
My favorite songs on the album
include “Transparent”, “Disorder”, “Fight” and “Isolated”.
The last song on the CD "Someone" is quite interesting because
Emileigh sounds almost exactly like Bjork.
My only complaint with some of
the songs here is that they can be a bit too mellow. It would have been
nice if Emileigh included more energetic clubfloor tracks. Hopefully
she will on her next release.
This CD will appeal to a large listening audience as it has a lot to
offer a wide variety of people. There’s something for just about every
electronic music fan here.
is the solo electronic project of Emileigh Rohn. This five song EP delivers
a lot of variety. Emileigh definitely likes to experiment with electronic
effects and enjoys layering various sounds together. The overall sound
of the music is beat heavy electro with a dark and cold vibe. Fairly
energetic electronic rhythms and beats overlay haunting synth melodies.
The music blends electro-industrial, EBM, darkwave and experimental
elements all into one to create a rather interesting experience. Emileigh
has a beautiful voice, and sings with melody. She even alters her voice
with effects at times to add even more variety to her songs. While everything
delivered on this CD is good, there is still room for some more polishing.
The sound quality can be a little rough around the edges with distorted
noise. A sharper more clean sound would enhance the music even more.
I will admit that this CD left me wanting more songs. I hope that a
full length Chiasm CD is released in the near future.
