Fotocrime is the latest project of Ryan Patterson, the former front man of one of my favorite bands of the past decade or so, Coliseum.  Fotocrime play a darkand moody style of music that incorporates elements of post punk, cold wave, and death rock within their sound.  Musically, Fotocrime can be loosely compared to bands such as Night Sins, Joy Division, The Birthday Party, The Estranged, and other like-minded bands.  Since forming in late 2016, Fotocrime have released a three song 7" titled Always Hell in May of 2017,  a six song EP titled Always Night in November of 2017, a ten song LP titled Principle Of Pain in May of 2018, and a ten song LP titled  South Of Heaven in March of 2020, and a two song EP titled Living Outside Of Time in March of 2021.  Heart Of Crime is Fotocrime's latest full-length LP, which was released via Profound Lore records on July 28th, 2021.  On Heart Of Crime, Fotocrime offer up eleven tracks of dark, gloomy, and moody sounding post punk, cold wave, and death rock.  Overall, Heart Of Crime makes for a awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
