Perfidious Words is the German synthpop duo of Lars Rohnstock and Drazen Kostelac. Formed in 1991, they only did covers of Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, and other synthpop legends, but after four years they had earned enough experience points to start writing their own music. Ruined, their first EP, came out in 1997 and it was followed by the well-received full-length Hydrogen Skies a year later.
The band’s sophomore album Spreading Silence was released in 2002 and its powerful melodies resulted in a continuous growth of Perfidious Words’ fan base around the globe. However, it took seven whole years for the Stuttgart boys to resurface with new material, but thankfully it was well worth the wait; in Feel Like Me, aka album number three, dark vocals combine with powerful synths to form a fervent record of electronic music that will strike a chord with fans of Depeche Mode, De/vision, Host-era Paradise Lost, a-ha, and Erasure. If you are looking for the perfect mixture of danceable, sensitive, and catchy tunes, you are in for a treat.
