DONNA REGINA - THE DECLINE OF FEMALE HAPPINESS (CD)


"Donna Regina have been around longer than electronica and the term never really fitted their music that well. After all, the duo from Cologne are really all about writing songs, not just producing tracks, and certainly not electronica. But you can't take such categorisation so literally. And if there's any band that can recite the A to Z of electronica in a song format, then its Donna Regina. They fit all the characteristics that we attribute to withdrawn and playful electronic music with all its nuances. Donna Regina are masters of reservation, allusion and vagueness. Only they are capable of keeping listeners in suspense in the way that they do. For example, the piece "Vague" (Nomen est Omen!) with its really stunning Giorgio Moroder bass-line creates expectation right from the first note. They are knowingly building up tension and consistently holding that level right through to the end without ever letting up. For Donna Regina don't do anything that's too obvious. They make outlines, suggestions and fill in colours. But they avoid the obvious." (label info)
