LA SCALTRA - Inked A Deal With Solar Lodge, Debut EP Out Now

German all female gothsters La Scaltra inked a deal with Solar Lodge (Garden Of Delight, Merciful Nuns, Aeon Sable, Whispers In The Shadow,...) and already released their first EP titled Ghosts. The duo has an affinity for horror movies and venerate Vampira, Morticia Addams and Lily Munster. They are dreamy, wicked, full of fantasy, mysterious and aloof. They are Aeleth Kaven (vocals, song-writing and composer) and Dae Widow (vocals), two banshees intend on sharing sorrow, pain and loneliness with their fabulously unique voices. Dae loves hope and East-Asian mysticism, Aeleth prefers the occult and venerates destructive black metal. The antithesis is manifesto, inspiring their dissimilarity and shaping their youth. They recount the search for a particular place where injured souls find succour, tranquillity and where they can settle down. A place protected by darkness in which one can be anything one wishes to be and do as one pleases, indulging in one's hidden fantasies. And they discovered that darkness is not necessarily to be feared but can be in fact most extraordinarily beautiful indeed.
On their EP Ghosts they employ minimal synth with original new wave embellished by a decent portion of post-punk. Particularly the elementary melodies and arrangements comprising bass, guitar, synthesizer and drum computer, enhanced with aloof yet enchanting wave-like voices casting their irresistible spell. Sentiments like sadness, emptiness and melancholy are transposed into their songs. At times Aeleth Kaven intones inexorably and dark, then soft and gentle in accord with Dae Widow's dreamy and maiden-like voice. With a straight lined impellent drum computer, perfectly harmonised instrumentation and the echoing canto achieving an ancillary expanse. Ghosts is uncompromisingly cold, dark and minimalistic, eerie and sinister not unlike a walk through an ancient cemetery draped in fog and moonlight. "Find beauty in darkness" is their motto! La Scaltra represent the most gorgeous gloomy-goth, full of obscure creativity and heavenly tristesse. In the player below you can give a listen to EP opening track "The Garden". Ghosts EP is available for orders at this location. Link
