Lena Platonos :: Bloody Shadows From Afar

The penultimate track from her 1985 lp, Gallop, Lena Platonos’ “Bloody Shadows From Afar” is a dark-wave tinted sonar of synth-pop-industrialism. It creeps in forebodingly and, as seductive as she is stealthy, the Greek composer’s voice hovers over undulating analog synths and a Roland 808.
