Roel de Haan : Fotocrime is a new act founded by Coliseum member Ryan Patterson and this ‘Principle Of Pain’ is his first full-length. Fotocrime is heavily inspired by the eighties and its “wave” music. Think of The Cure, Killing Joke and even U2 or Joy Division. Gothic tinged new-wave pop aestathics, groovy basslines and programmed drums and electro synths. Binding factor through it all is the brooding voice of Patterson. The songs are usually quite accessible yet far from cheerful and that is its main attraction. Hardly inspiring a new gulf of followers (pun intended), but sure to be enjoyed by fans of the aforementioned groups.
