Stream Dream Affair’s “The Porter” via Pitchfork Media

“The young Brooklyn coldwave trio Dream Affair pay fair homage to gothic sounds of 1980s Britain on their recent Aborted State cassette, fusing voguish Cure/Sisters of Mercy-derived morosity with industrial and pop leanings à la Wierd Records. Prep for October’s impending All Hallow’s Eve with “The Porter”, where the band casts just enough restraint and thematic hopelessness over familiar elements– skeletal synth melodies, deep mechanized thuds– to feel distinct. Naturally the track has got a gloomy, self-produced video set in ruinous post-WWII Berlin; Altered State will be out on 12″ vinyl early next year via Toronto’s Artificial Records.” ~ Pitchfork Media
