Songs For Sinners
Alec Fu and Alex Alice of Slave Republic release their anticipated new material. Characterized by themselves as "Synthwave-Noir", the Berliners by choice follow up to their recognized 2013 CD "Quest for Love" with "Songs for Sinners". The new album took shape after touring with Diorama and festival appearances (i.e. Blackfield Festival) throughout Germany. While Slave Republic stay true to their gothic roots, they introduce new elements to the scene. Fu and Alice combine elements of the Synthwave genre, dance elements and their songwriting skills to a new mix: "Synthwave-Noir". Slave Republic push into a new direction but keep the melancholic vocals and beats, which have become their signature elements. The well-established collaboration with Haujobbs Daniel Myer continues on this third album, the Portuguese Telmo Serrano joined for this production.
