"From Czech Republic comes Yv Salome with her debut single 'I Want To Die', an interesting electronic blend of darkwave and synthwave with a tight beat and strange appeal.
From the immediate perception of a vanguardistic music production to the smooth calmed vocals and obscure theme, this is a perfect release for a newcomer; and gets even more interesting when getting to know the artistic background and career of Yv.
As an international published alternative model she sure knows how to design a dark attractive and ambigous image and set the tone for a dark and strange yet captivating mood.
Her vocal style is subtle and sometimes enigmatic on this track; the melancholic melodies and dark sweet tones flowing in cool crafted synth patches wrap perfectly around the performance.
This in the end is a carefully crafted music production and presentation and a perfect choice for melancholic, nostalgic or simply obsucre moods and situations.
We encourage you to follow Yv Salome to keep up with her upcoming releases, no doubt she will be releasing top quality material in the near future."

SYW Overall SCORE:
INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
The story laying behind my first solo work [I WANT TO DIE] is quite curious. It appeared to become my first work in the synth-pop genre. Before that I was composing lyrics and music for typical gothic-rock music and I can’t say I was really happy with that, cause I’ve always felt constrained with some rules of the genre both in lyrics and sound. When it comes to lyrics I need as much freedom as possible and [I WANT TO DIE] was the riskiest and desperate of my works. I thought I would never let it out of my Moleskine notebook. This text is the essence of what was going on in my life at that moment, I desperately wanted to find the way out and I believed that there is a way, sometimes when you think this is the end of the world, it’s just the beginning of a new one and this is what this song about. It’s about a new life, a new level, a deeper level of understanding, a deeper level of life. It is also my first song from the upcoming EP which I’m currently working on.
