On 25th August, the Swedish electronic pioneers Covenant released ‘Sound Mirrors’, the first single of their forthcoming album ‘The Blinding Dark’, out in November 2016. The new single is typical Covenant perfection based on solid E.B.M. ground, flourished with the band’s expected electro-synth melodies, also placing Eskil Simonsson’s trait vocals as the leading principle in their art that leads to the usual effect:  an electronic song, not a track.

Covenant are talented, thus pioneering in dark electronic music and among the most swaying bands that shape modern electro into complete works. I can hardly wait until November so I can get my copy of ‘The Blinding Dark’!
