This is a test. Two diverging versions of The Cure‘s “Love Song” will distinguish your general make-up. Based on your personal preference, what kind of gal or gentleman are you? Just in time for Halloween, has The Black Soft‘s Toturemix come along with a powerfully spooky 80’s remake to swoop you away? Or is it their light-hearted original cover that addicts you? It’s dark versus light. Synth versus sensual. And with each track, the emotional pulling power of a planet in orbit. Good luck with the decision. I have a distinct feeling it won’t be an easy one to make.
The New York-based duo released both in a year’s time. The original “Love Song” cover on their February self-titled LP, and the Toturemix just a few days ago on Totu Popep. With their inclination for children’s choirs, overlapping vocals, and potent orchestral climaxes, these guys create electronic pop for dance-addicted dungeon dwellers.
Keep your eyes on this dynamic twosome. Also, check out the Toturemix version used in a Nicola Formichetti promo —Lady Gaga‘s stylist and creative director– which is currently being shown at his pop up store in Tribeca, NYC.
