Naive Heart reveals its cold beauty through a solid and homogeneous collection of electro gems on which sails Darkleti’ melancholic voice: twelve pieces of “outstanding classic analogue electronic pop perfection” – as the album got reviewed at time of release.
And as every anniversary needs a surprise, Celluloide recently came across 4 unreleased (and forgotten) versions of songs from Naive Heart.
After the release of ths album in 2002, it soon appeared that some alternative versions would be needed for upcoming concerts, and the band had no other option at that time but to re-record the tracks once more…
Celluloide then went on re-programming four tracks: Sixth Sense, Wounds Of Love, A Lie and Seven And Forever with newly instrumental versions recorded, giving these very four songs new multitrack recordings available again.
Roughly mixed versions were used for concerts of that era, but then the recordings got totally forgotten as the years went on, until very recently…
The idea of giving now a proper mixing and record release to these four tracks by adding the original vocals to make them sound as they were intended to be back then, instantly stood like the right thing to do.
Listening to this special EP is like diving into the past through a time machine, and hearing the songs exactly as they were originally intended…
Gathered for the first time on a brand new EP called Six Wounds, Seven Lies, and released on CD and 10″ clear vinyl !
