The EP’s title (Beleid – meaning “condolence”), not to mention the illustration of a rainy funeral on its cover, clearly signpost the kind of bleak terrain we’re headed for, but Bohren are as adept at ever at finding romance and a sort of redemption in the heart of the abyss. Musically, the key reference point remains Angelo Badalamenti’s scores for David Lynch; a combination of plaintive sax, ominous synth drones and electronic piano situated at the interzone between dream and nightmare.
