Bootblacks





Electro-goths Bootblacks talk about synths on Delicious Synths

Bootblacks offer a gothic melancholia bounced back and forth on synth-pop beats, a menacing vision of gloom that’s infectious. Bootblacks’ post-punk/new-wave sensibility is beautifully paired with Panther Macdonald’s vocals. They’re straight out of the post-punk catalog: romantic, dramatic, seductive. The band promises a seedier vision of NYC, one of decadence and decay. They shared their preference about synths with our sister blog Delicious Synths, check it out!





Bootblacks' LP "Fragments" Debuts 09.14

Bootblacks offer a gothic melancholia bounced back and forth on synth-pop beats, a menacing vision of gloom that’s infectious. Bootblacks’ post-punk/new-wave sensibility is beautifully paired with Panther Macdonald’s vocals. They’re straight out of the post-punk catalogue: romantic, dramatic, seductive. The band promises a seedier vision of NYC, one of decadence and decay. Their newest work offers a more sophisticated sonic aesthetic, so make sure to check out their new album “Fragments” from (appropriately named, for this release) Manic Depression Records, available 09.14. --Amanda Ogea

Electro-Post-Punk trio Bootblacks unveils single from upcoming LP "Veins" + tours Europe

Bootblacks is a rather appropriate name for a band that plays electro-post-punk inspired to the early '80s: a scene that was particularly attached to their black boots, preferably Dr. Martens ones - a paradoxical fixation, considering how anti-corporate the punk and post-punk movements have always been. The duo's first single "8 Sub Rosa" (streaming) pairs an ultrafast, pulsating electronic rhythm section with clean, textural guitars. Traces of goth are evident - while listening to this track, echoes of Dead or Alive and early New Order keep haunting us, while Brooklyn Vegan, who premiered their song, hears a direct link to Clan of Xymox (we hear it too!) and Front Line Assembly (not so much). Hailing from Brooklyn, the three musicians will be self-releasing debut album "Veins" on March 11th and start a spring European tour with Berlin band Liste Noire (formerly Velvet Condom).
