Following an avalanche of positivity towards the 'deviant black metal noir' of 2017 debut Futility Report, White Ward from Odessa, Ukraine present second full-length Love Exchange Failure, the next step of their rapid evolution into an increasingly unique musical force. The band channel Bohren, Badalamenti and contemporary blackened majesty into an eclectic set of visionary hymns that fuse late-night metropolitan contemplation, psychological horror, intoxicating melodicism and primeval, animal-state ferocity. Drenched in composure, creativity and dynamism, Love Exchange Failure blends brushed drums, reverberant piano, a variety of guesting clean vocalists and neo-noir saxophone within an architecture of first-rate contemporary misanthropic black metal. Diverse movements and tonal shifts interlink as if to mirror what the band describes as humanity's existential struggle "caused by the inability to understand who we are and what our place on this planet is" - a clash between dreamworlds and harsh reality evocative as the urban landscapes of photographer Luke Pownall used throughout the packaging.
