Afterglow encompasses the more melancholic hues of life, those bittersweet feelings when something significantly beautiful ends, the echo of a beloved voice, the remnants of light after the sun has set. Love and its loss, sorrow, hope, daydream, and the determination to live, all these shimmer upon Marva Von Theo’s deep and poetic lyrics, which constitute the core of this album.
In Afterglow, Marva Von Theo contrive a danceable, electronic sound, shadowed elegantly by noir, moody, sonic palettes, an unconventional space that flows vigorously between Electronica, Art Pop, Dark pop, Neo-Synthpop, Darkwave, Post-Punk, Contemporary and Jazz.

Another addition to my growing collection of darkwave albums, a sound I didn’t know I liked until recently.
A dark overall feel, killer female vocals, driving rhythms, and synths reminiscent of the 80s, which was the decade of my coming of age and is why I feel nostalgia for the sound. Lute FP
