Audra, 6/10 Links:

Audra is the project of brothers Bret and Bart Helm, originally from Chicago but now residing in Mesa, Arizona. In a Dark Room (1998) introduced the band with the somber requiem In Hollywood Tonight and the elegant madrigal You're So Pretty.

The EP Silver Music (1999) gave them an underground hit, In All Our Androgyny, that sets David Bowie's wails to a Joy Division dance beat. Their style is indeed anchored to glam-rock, as Spiked with Black and Rum proves, but a decadent stately ballad like Flowers and the lengthy, slow, distorted raga of 2 Girls in 1 Dress, not to mention the Doors rip-off of Venus, present a much more mature band.

Audra (Projekt, 2000) collects the best of the two albums. Their half-baked synth-pop is redeemed by an excursion in Sisters Of Mercy land like What Your Eyes Have Seen.
