Czarina’s “Blaze” is a wonderful piece of synth-pop that weaves in hints of goth and darkwave. There’s an equally intense instrumentation that plays along nicely with the booming percussion and synth line. I like that Czarina is able to build upon the tradition of modern revivalists of synth-pop like La Roux and Chromeo in creating something retro but impressive with modern sensibilities. Czarina’s vocals are supersonic here with a back and forth male/female dynamic both telling a story and adding considerably to the overall harmonies of the single. Listeners will have to play Blaze a number of times before hearing each and every turn that has been included within.
