Darkwave goth group Synical recently released their new music video "Homesick," and it's a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece that's sure to captivate fans of the genre. The video, released via Cleopatra Records, features a brooding melody that's perfectly complemented by the stunning visuals.

The video features the band performing amongst strange and unique visuals including a throwback look and feel to early 80's darkwave along with the torching of a helpless keyboard that never hurt anybody.   The imagery is both eerie and captivating, with a visual style that piqued my interest from the very start.

Lyrically, I dig the vibe and after a few spins really honed in on the overall message of loss in life and our ability to overcome it (if we take responsibility and own it).  It's something as humans we can all relate to in one way or another.

One of the standout features of Synical's music is their ability to weave together disparate elements into a cohesive whole. "Homesick" is no exception, with darkwave, post-punk, and gothic influences all blending seamlessly together. It's a testament to the band's skill as musicians and their dedication to creating a unique and compelling sound.

Overall, "Homesick" is an impressive release from Synical that's sure to please fans of the genre. With its haunting melody, stunning visuals, and masterful blend of musical styles, this is a video that's definitely worth checking out.

In addition, Synical's new album This Will All Happen Again will be out on July 21st and will be accompanied by nine more outstanding tracks. The band’s fifth studio album will feature performances from legendary artists such as Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, Mary My Hope, Faster Pussycat, Murderdolls and more - and it promises to be their most ambitious album to date.
