Bratislava (Slovakia) based synth wave/post-punk duo The Caramel Exile has inked a deal with Wave Records and will release their self-titled debut album on 10th September. The album will contain 13 songs, of which there are two songs in the Slovak language. Each song is specific in itself, it depicts the various moods or feelings of the author. By this the band wanted to reach out to listeners. So fans of electro-wave, darkwave, postpunk, synthie,... don't miss this one.
It all started in 2000 in one of Bratislava's garages. Two brothers nicknamed Dirty77 and Carlos started the band Hysteric Helen. Electro, deathrock formation with touch of post-punk. In 2004, they released their first single with hit "I'm Deep". At the same time the third member of Ms.Valentine officially joined the band as a singer and keyboard player who previously worked with the band as a guest. Within 3-4 years, the Hysteric Helen became known to people. One of their songs is also on the compilation of Strobelight Records, they played alongside the band as Cinema Strange, The Last Days Of Jesus, Tragic Black and many others. After releasing debut album in 2013, guitarist Carlos leaves and the band gives rest.
Meanwhile, Ms. Valentine is composing her own songs. In her musical style is listening to the wave, synthie, new romantic with the sounds of the 80s. At the turn of 2012/2013 it is added to it member of Hysteric Helen and her boyfriend Dirty77 and they set up their side project titled The Francees Lane. They released one single "Fed Up" and played some concerts.
Dirty77 ends in 2013 completely sideways Hysteric Helen and works on a joint project with Ms.Valentine. Their new songs have a different sound than the The Francees Lane. That is why in 2014 the duo will create a new music project The Caramel Exile with modern electro sound mixed with dark-wave, post-punk,... Members are: Ms.Valentine (vocals, keys, programming) and Dirty77 (guitar, backvocal). All songs are written by Ms.Valentine. Produced, arrangements and sound by Dirty77. Duo will close in the spring of 2014 in the TCLemons music studio, and records the material for first debut album. In doing so, at own expense the band released the first four-songs EP called Caramel Demo. EP has a good response from the public, which is expecting a debut album. However, the inconvenience is coming... misunderstandings between the two members in private, their gauge, recording studio must change premises and so on. Despite all that, at the end of 2017, material for the album in the studio has been finished. Some of the tracks are already available for streaming and you can hear them in the player below. Link
