Gittin’s book takes you on a researched journey through the Basildon boys’ rise from all-electronic, anti-rock cliche entity to elegantly wasted dons of debauchery with the world at their feet, adopting an accessible, easy-to-navigate album-by-album trip through their discography complete, with recording dates/venues, chart positions, tracklistings, etc. Of course, this will allow readers to dip in and out, depending on which version of Depeche they favour.
In terms of backstory, which is interwoven with in-depth behind-the-scenes recollection of each album, the years in which they produced their greatest works. As well as being transitional musically, with the band swapping their synths for an industrial rockish approach. Gittins also explores the changes in the group dynamic and how close the band came to falling apart due to personal issues consuming its members, most natably, Dave Gahan’s drug addiction. Moreover, you’ll be happy to see the evolution of their strong visual identity over their career through groundbreaking photos.

Exotic Electro-Pop Producer Sindresu Shares “Daydream” Single
Exotic Electro-Pop producer Sindresu has shared his recently released single “Daydream” via Sindresu Records. The Norwegian musician has previously had his music signed to the Swedish-American record label LoudKult and featured on the YouTube Tastemaker channel and Indie label ChillYourMind. In addition, he has had three of his singles, “Get Out of My Head,” “Sublime,” and “Weightless,” appear on the popular YouTube channel MrRevillz, while on air his music has received spins on Norway’s biggest radio station NRK P1 Radio. All in all, the accumulated support has helped him to reach just under 2 million streams across platforms.
Born in Sunndalsora, Norway, but based in Stockholm, Sweden, Sindre Saether Ulfsnes, also known as Sindresu, began his musical adventure at age of five, when he was taught to play the violin. Later, he picked up the guitar and sat down to learn the piano. Presently, in search of a signature sound, Sindre blends aspects of Tropical House, Future Bass, RnB, and Pop, while drawing influence from industry giants like Avicii, Big Wild, Flume, and Matoma to create music that one can compare to the work of Sam Feldt, Kygo, and Lost Frequencies.
Sindresu sets a feel-good mood with his new record ‘Daydream’. The Norwegian musician has created an upbeat tune that steals us away and transports us to a paradisal island, where we dip our toes in salty chords and lay beneath sun-baked vocals. Like the gentle crash of waves, the melodious record soothes, capturing a moment of picturesque tranquillity.
Describing the concept of the single, Sindresu says: “Daydream is about escaping reality during dark times and is inspired by a difficult period in my life. I experienced serious burnout, which left me with declined health for a time. This song tells the story of being stuck in an unfulfilling life and dreaming of better days. I had this entire song, vocal and instrumental, finished in my head before even starting to produce it, since I wasn’t able to work at the time. The vocals were written by me and performed by vocalist Clayton Jones.”
