EARTH RISING

After a number of appearances on compilations like ‘Electricity’, ‘Evolution’ & ‘Electro Nouveau’ this is the debut release for Nukleon, signed to the Cohaagen label Nukleon produce a brand of purist Synth Pop that lies close to fellow label mates Gary Flanagan and least not Ganymede, the album itself has been mixed and mastered by Dave Friede from the band while at times the vocals are close to Marc Almond, in fact Nukleon could easily be described as an Americanised Soft Cell, but it would be all too easy to corner Nukleon with a label like that, listening to this album clearly shows a very promising solo artist with great potential.

The album itself features 10 tracks plus the addition of a ‘hidden track’ at the end of the album itself, also featured here are the previously released tracks ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Homewrecker’, both first appearing on the ‘Evolution’ & ‘Electricity’ compilations while a number of tracks have had various spoken samples added to them.

There are many excellent tracks here, but one of the more outstanding tracks featured is the final track ‘One More Day’, a superb mid-paced track with a mid-80s New Order edge to it, a perfect finish to the album itself. Also excellent is the perfect and opening track the up-tempo ‘Mars’ which features some great synth work, also the equally up-tempo ‘Lucky’, a track that seemly has generated a great deal of interest in Nukleon to the more mid-paced ‘Sometimes’ while the slower and mid-paced ‘Homewrecker’ is a more polished version of the original version that appeared on the ‘Electricity’ compilation, this version has a nice bright and occasional bouncy edge to the track itself also the harder edge of the impressive ‘Jane’ while the ‘hidden’ track is a fantastic and solid piece of up-tempo Synth Pop complete with some great early-80s style synth riffs and vocoder vocals listing a number of items including the words Nukleon and Synth Pop.

Other excellent tracks of note include the slow to mid-paced style of ‘Escort’ and the more up-tempo numbers ‘Infidel’ and ‘Reasons’ which features a good example of the vocal similarities with Marc Almond while both ‘Escort’ and ‘Infidel’ feature a sample of those interesting lyrics that feature through out the album itself.

This is a very impressive debut release from Nukleon with a great selection of tracks, excellent purist Synth Pop, strong and at times unique vocals complete with some interesting lyrics. At this early stage of the year we are already been treated to some excellent Synth Pop releases, ‘Earth Rising’ is clearly one of them and will easily be among one of the best Synth Pop albums you will hear this year.
