After working with a long list of major acts like The Kills and Moby and writing songs together with Dave Gahan for the latest two Depeche Mode albums the Swiss-born New Yorker Kurt Uenala emerges as a solo artist under the name Null + Void, with his debut longplayer Cryosleep.
An album of contrasts and tension, where darkness is pierced by blinding light, and where moody new wave bleeds into stark electronics. In one moment, joyful memories give way to isolation and regret, and in the next, Cryosleep explores the catharsis of crowded dancefloors.
Throughout the record, Uenala matches his dynamic produc- tion with incredible vocalists—from Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan and the inimitable Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum, to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Big Pink.
Null + Void's take on dark pop meshes with his love for Detroit electro, poi- gnant synth melodies, and cold atmospheres.
Following on from 'Asphalt Kiss', 'Paragon' will be the second instrumental single released on August 11th, while 'Where I Wait' feat. Dave Gahan will follow in September including a mesmerizing music video directed by Timothy Saccenti (a long time video collaborator of Depeche Mode).
The album 'Cryosleep' will be released on 3rd November on limited colored vinyl, CD and digital. Digital bonus tracks will be added to all formats via a download code.
