From the outset, Wembley’s haunting vocals take center stage, delivering lyrics that are both introspective and emotionally charged.

The “Cold Minimal Wave Remix” brings a distinctive touch to the song, infusing it with an icy and atmospheric quality. The minimalistic yet powerful arrangement allows Stella Wembley’s voice to shine, creating a synergy between the electronic elements and her emotive delivery. The second remix, “Bionic Visions Electro Remix”, successfully transforms the original, adding layers of complexity and intrigue. The third, final remix, “Bionic Visions Dark Ambient Remix”, which is my favorite, has a better sound production – everything is clearer, louder and you can listen to the wonderful vocals of Stella. Overall, this EP is an exploration of the electro-goth nuances, in a meticulous production, which punctuates the use of electronic instrumentation, combined with Wembley’s evocative vocal style. The fusion of ethereal melodies, pulsating beats, and introspective lyrics forms a cohesive narrative that unfolds across the entirety of the release.
