Album: Aggressive Artist: Geiko (Ámaris Wenzel) Production: Geiko (Ámaris Wenzel) An edgy gothic synthpop album smartly interlaced with emotional and pained sentiments of wanting to find love and be appreciated by someone who shares that adoration isn’t the introduction many music fans would expect from an electro Swiss producer and instrumentalist.
