Society of the Silver Cross “When You’re Gone”

When You’re Gone is a powerful effort that goes back to the early-nineties style of goth music (e.g. Christian Death, Switchblade Symphony) and makes it important and vital again. The slow introduction showcases a very traditional sort of instrumentation; the emotionally intense vocals completely change things up shortly after. Taken together, these two disparate elements make for a loud, resounding effort that will stick around with listeners long after the single ceases to play. A repetition of the vocals add further complexity to the track’s harmonies. With a ton to unpack, When You’re Gone is the rare example of a song that gets better with time.
