Singer of the 2000’s re-envisioned Information Society, Christopher Anton, is furthering his solo career with this cover of Visage’s ‘Fade To Grey’.
It’s a tough one to cover, the atmosphere and performance of the original is hard to top (and never has been in my opinion) but Anton does an adequate job here. The track is upbeat and enjoyable but unfortunately seems to suffer the same fate as much of the ‘Modern SynthPop’ scene, particularly those coming from an EBM/Industrial background, in that it seems not to have much understanding of contemporary Electronic music which tends to make the production quite stilted and mediocre. That said, it is a nice cover version and will probably go down a storm at EBM clubs.
