Deranged Minds Uniteby The Search
2007 · Lonaly Records · LON 01

If new-wave, the late 70's to early 80's genre of mostly synthesizer/guitar-driven music that was somewhere between pop-rock and goth, should make a return to popularity as it appears to be trying to do, The Search have certainly released a(nother) 12-song resource for how to do it right. Following the lead that bands like Interpol have taken, there are more bands today beginning to embrace the style that The Cure, The Chameleons, The Sound and even Joy Division originated. Technology has taken us far past the point at which these bands first started to digitally experiment, but on their 3rd studio album "Deranged Minds Unite", The Search have backed off today's available resources just enough to create something that sounds vintage new-wave. What is amazing is how authentic The Search sounds. The band takes what was cutting edge twenty years ago and somehow keeps it fresh, and without sounding silly. The music is lush and polished, while Razmigs' vocals are dark and lovely. "Deranged Minds Unite" sounds smooth and tuneful, with more hooks than a tackle box, and the production is excellent. Listen with an open mind, and you may just surprise yourself.

Bloodbathe & Bazaar Of Lush Loose Limbsby The Search
2006

This remastered CD contains 2 mini-albums that The Search recorded in 2004 and which have never been officially released until now. The 80's postpunk and British indie music slowly but steadily make a comeback. Bands like Interpol, Radio 4, Astral and The Stills use the musical heritage of the 80's in a refreshing way in their modern alternative music. References to The Smiths, Suicide, Joy Division and The Cure are hip again.

Sweden's newest export, The Search, proved with their debut album that you don't need to be noisy or extravagant in order to do the job. Their sound brings to mind influences from eighties bands such as The Cure, Joy Division and Sad Lovers & Giants.

The band combines a very crisp wavy guitar approach with a classic rhythmic backbone consisting of bass, drums and keys. Their prog-post-punk sound makes the experience of listening to this album one that you wish to repeat over and over. Throughout the album the powerful strums of the bass and synthesizer, absolutely separates their music from other bands-being their strongest element.

Overall, this is a good post-punk tune that builds nicely to a climactic frenzy then fades out slowly. Don't miss out on this one!
