"Indelible Scars, one of the best hidden modern synthpop gems out there, recently released 'Can You Be Sure (Cruel To Be Kind Mix)', another gorgeous collaboration with Seven Words singer-songwriter Paul Adams, this time the version takes the song to a more dark and thrilling atmosphere with all the perfect tweaking that a modern synthpop production is expected to offer.
The overall music production is elegant with all the right mixing balance, tonality, and synth textures along with a great drum layering.
Neil really shines in this type of production and style, is one of those voices that you know 'it fits' just perfectly with the mood, the ambiance, and the cool and elegant attitude.
Indelible Scars is one of those bands we insist that should be paired among the most popular and long-lived pioneers of the modern synthpop genre, Mesh, De/Vision, and Cause and Effect come to mind for example.
If you like complex and very fine produced modern synthpop electropop with an immersive atmosphere and great synth patches and melodies, please add Indelible Scars to your library, and of course, please listen to them via our Synthpop Your Universe! Spotify Playlist!"

INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
‘Indelible Scars’ thought provoking and evocative collaboration with ‘Seven Words’ on the original semi-classical track "Can You Be Sure" gets a dark synth fueled drug infusion in the new "Cruel To Be Kind Mix".
