Style: Synth pop

B Jewels of the Nile - Deathwish
This is a split single with american bands Soft Metals and Jewels of the Nile released by Desire records in early 2011. I have written about Soft Metals two times before about the releases The cold world melts and the debut album Soft metals.
Both bands make cover versions on this release. Soft Metals take on Throbbing Gristle's song Hot on the heels of love. The arpeggiated synths from the original works well within the Soft Metals universe, but they turn it in to a more danceable and sparkling version.
Jewels of the Nile are Meghan Scanlon and Jessy DeLaurentis from Los Angeles and they are a new acquaintance to me. Thet both play in the band Magick Daggers and started JOTN out of there love for electroinc music with a down tempo. They do a quit dark and beautiful version of a song by american deathrock band Christian Death. Deathwish gets a really cool transformation and it really makes me curious to check out JOTN further.
JOTN's cover version and the original of Deathwish.
