CD Review: Cardamis - Cardamis
Cardamis - Cardamis
2007, Phonector (Germany)
Cardamis is a 3-song EP by its eponymous progenitor. Born in Greece and currently living in Germany, Cardamis has obviously been influenced heavily by European dance music. Eat Your Dinner is a spiffy little mid-tempo dance tune that could live through several mixes in nightclubs on both sides of Atlantic. Bound To Love You is the closest Cardamis comes to conveying real thought in the songs offered here. The song is decent and pleasant to listen to. Take Me Apart falls prey to hip-hop posturing in its opening. The song itself is innocuous - pleasant but not memorable.
This is a decent effort from Cardamis. A little heavy on dance fluff, not heavy on originality. Decent stuff, but too much like so many artists already out there that it just doesn't stand out. There is talent here, and Cardamis has a look that will certainly garner him attention, so don't be surprised if you hear a lot of him on the radio (or see a lot on TV) in the future.
Rating: 2.5 Stars (Out of 5)
