Imagine bringing together two distinct but complementary musical talents, already established as composers and producers in their own right, one male - with years as a performer on the festival and club circuit behind him - and one female - a rising star with a siren's voice, a maverick committed to live performance. Imagine their astonishing sound: an intoxicating concoction of driving rhythms, lush synthesizers, psychedelic effects, and instantly memorable hooks drenched in a dark atmosphere of melancholy and brooding beauty. If you can do that, you're on your way to grasping the wondrous sound-world of Seven Dreams of Fire, the debut album from Lydmor & Bon Homme - a partnership that brings together Tomas Hoffding, the singer and bassist of experimental Danish electronic pop trio WhoMadeWho, and Jenny Rossander aka Lydmor (literally Soundmother), a singer-songwriter star rising from the fires of the underground and spreading her wings. Kicking off with the single Things We Do for Love - a masterclass in slo-mo house, with Bon Homme's husky drawl and Lydmor's pure voice soaring over a luxurious bed of sustained pads - it's an album with a consistent quality that never let's up. From the stirring orchestral strings of Trooper to the expansive motorik disco of Dream of Fire to the low-slung bassy groove of Go Fingers Go to the lush, anthemic Flash to the stripped-down sub-bass and intimate vocals of Wired, it's a fine representation of the duo's string of intense, crowd-pleasing live performances. A playful analog synth symphony opens Vanity, ample testimony to their experimental edge and yet another pop noir classic. Trampoline seduces with it's breathy pop funk, teeming with crisp, percussive details. Tear Us Apart Again is infectious and choric, underpinned by simple but brutally effective synth repetitions. Missed Out on Disco features a Cure-like guitar motif with male and female vocals ghosting each other while Dream of Fire Part 2 features synthesizer drones that cast a widescreen, cinematic feel. The album features programming by Tomas Barfod (Filur, WhoMadeWho, Tomboy) and drums by Birk Nevel. CD includes two extra tracks.
