Modern Music Review
'Old world European cabaret meets new world meets pop, dance and electronica.'
It's time to feel the melancholia in your body with singer/songwriter Jose Promis' the debut album.Mostly his music influenced by Jacques Brel,Rufus Wainwright and Leonard Cohen.
In Fall 2005 his music was featured in the award winning musical Night Of The Black Cat, winner of the 2005 L.A. Music Award for Best Staged Musical, at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, and in early 2006 he self-released his first album,titled Promis.

Album opening "Burned by the sun" and the following songs "Under the Stars","Barfly" are three drunken piano oriented melodies."Delusions of Grandeur" is a stylish accordion weighted nostalgic melody.Thus far,it's a musical banquet for people in love with nostalgia.Sorrowful side of album never dissapears.It's possible to hear the same melancholy in electronic songs(It's a Fire,Rust).The Essence of Promis appears in songs like "When Lovers Get Bored","The Street","Wind Up a Song".

'I should have been more discreet,But I couldn’t help my heart beat,The promise in your smile was too sweet.'Lyrics from The streets.

"When Lovers Get Bored" keeps giddy vocals,slow killer melodies.Altough there are spotty vocals in songs "Could This Be Our Time?","It's a fire","barfly" but combination vocals with effective pianos are plainly worth to listen.The best vocal performance you hear near to go(Wind Up a Song)!This song brings the whole talent of songwriter Jose Promis,including the best lyrics and flying pianos."Rust" is a good-chosen closing song,it's walking around with its electronic beats.This debut seems it's tired of being punished by pain of love.Mostly it's placed in the middle of love stories.
MM picks:When Lovers Get Bored,Wind Up a Song
