4 stars Amazing!

Turn back to the 80's at its best New Romantic synth- era, faithfully replayed and re-modeled into the 21st century with refined retro-electronics, with a keen and perfect balance between raw electronic experimentation and straight forward creative dance rock fast and slow rhythms and melodies.

The full of emotion/ emotionless voice of Moonface (Spencer Krug), may remind you of Gary Numan's, John Foxx's, Peter Murphy's, Robert Smith or even Bowie's apocalyptic love intonations , so re-visiting this doomsday's heartbreaking atmospheres feels so comfortable and then again fresh as new.

After all central europe and the UK sheltered the best of the 80's underground and above ground synth-wave movement's musicians, but then again not exactly from Finland and Siinai comes from Finland so expect "FinRock" to fit the KrautRock Prog-labeling.

Siinai's, 2012, "Heartbreaking Bravery" (with Moonface), is above all perfectly written song by song to the point where harvoring past 80's stylings is credible as it also feeds from other electronic names, so blending influences like Bowie, U2 , The Cure or Underworld with Ultravox or the early and later Depeche Mode, or the irreverent The B-52's or the shamefully forgotten The Beloved or the well known Bahaus makes sense.

Uplifting and downlifting 80's synth/styles at its best.

****4 PA stars.
