Contre-Attaque standing by...

Post by Contre-Attaque » Thu Jun 27, 2019 4:57 pm

Hey! My name's Dave, currently based in Manchester, and I go by Contre-Attaque because I thought it sounded cooler in French than the English equivalent. The reality is that no one I know can really pronounce it and it just gets a bit awkward :lol:

I decided on a whim to get in to writing synthwave about 2 years ago - having not written music for about 15 years - and soon realised I didn't really like being constrained to one genre. My first LP ended up being a mix of synthwave, darksynth,a bit of spacewave and a hint of industrial.

I'm currently writing my 2nd album which is turning out to be much heavier affair with some nice djenty guitars, wailing solos and a lot of genre bending/blending along the way - all in keeping with the darksynth aesthetic of course.

Anyway, social links are in my profile if you want to hit me up. I'll be lurking around here as well. Take it easy 8-)

Awesome! Nice to see you here man, it seems we have a few things in common, i used to be quite partial to proggy bands with djenty tones! I'll definitely check out your stuff.

Make sure you take a look around and post your music. But above all, have a fantastic time and welcome to the forum man!
