The Frozen Autumn is an Italian band from Turin. They’ve released three albums since forming in 1993 and Time is Just a Memory is a six-track collection and a general overview of those three albums. The songs are dark, clinical synth tracks in the vein of Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins and Oppenheimer Analysis.

Vinyl LP £15.99 DE108LP
Remastered LP on Dark Entries.
With a classic 4AD font and someone looking vaguely like Tracey Thorn (circa '82) on the cover this could only be one thing - the lost 1980's gothy indie classic. Get prepared for something a bit more synthy than you might expect though (even though it's on Dark Entries). The production values make this sound rather like a goth Pet Shop Boys. There's also hints of the Associates on 'There's No Time to Recall'.
The Frozen Autumn were from Italy but you could be forgiven for thinking that they had been solely influenced by those early Seona Dancing singles. It's all post Bowie posturing combined with pulsating keyboards and on 'Wait For Nothing' Duran Duran style guitars. A flit through the album reveals that this is no timeless classic but is an interesting time piece from those dark early '80's where everyone got to be dramatic with keyboards. 'Silence Is Talking' in particular mirrors the funky dance synth of Yazoo. And closer 'This Time' makes me want to google Classic Nouveaux and find out what Sal Solo is doing these days.
