HOLYGRAM Release Info:

Reptile Music proudly presents the CD edition of the stunning debut EP from the Cologne based band HOLYGRAM! Besides the five original tracks it contains four brandnew remixes by Blind Delon, Box And The Twins, D’Evoé and Bob Humid!

HOLYGRAM walk the tightrope between New Wave, Post Punk and industrial Krautrock: driving, gloomy and full of catchy moments. The varied influences of the five band members who gathered in the vibrant music landscape of Cologne in 2015 are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU! Previously contradictory elements are deftly combined into a sinister soundtrack for the city at twilight. Music for the lost.

The debut EP „Holygram“ was recorded and mixed in the band’s own AMEN studio in Cologne over several months. The five songs demonstrate the bandwidth of the band without staying on the beaten track or being stranded in any one particular genre. Anyone who has seen them live will confirm that the spectrum of HOLYGRAM is by no means exhausted.

The songs „Hideaway“ and „Acceleration“ show the atmospheric density of the band and clearly demonstrate the aspect of contrast which resonates subliminally throughout the production. Laid back drums meet driving basslines and synthesizer melodies to reflect the conflict in the lyrics. Topics such as alienation in the dreary city or depression are explored here in a unity of word and music.

„Daria“, „Still There“ and „Distant Light“, on the other hand, invite the listener to dance in the fog and strobe lights of their favourite club and make no secret of the fact that the band does not just want to stimulate melancholic musing. HOLYGRAM will present the sound captured in the studio live on stage, without relying on the usual practice of backing tracks from the laptop.

Label: Manic Depression / Synth Religion
Distribution: Altone

Release: 08.11.16
File Under: Dark & Dream Pop

 

 

Info:

Nach den beiden EPs „Our Fears“ und „Below Zero“ legen BOX AND THE TWINS nun endlich ihr lang erwartetes Debütalbum „Everywhere I Go Is Silence“ vor, das von Hélène de Thoury (Minuit Machine, Hante, Phosphor) produziert wurde. Angefangen vom Opener „Pale Blue Dot“, zu dem kürzlich ein neues Video vorab veröffentlicht wurde, über die Frühwerke „Perfume Well“ und „Sometimes The Waves“ bis hin zum abschließenden „Western Horizon“ kreiert das Trio mit melancholischen Gitarren, düsterer Elektronik und dem verträumten Gesang der Sängerin Box den perfekten Soundtrack für die dunkle Jahreszeit. Dazwischen schlägt die Kölner Formation im Rahmen ihrer betörenden Melange aus Dark & Dream Pop bei Songs wie „This Place Called Nowhere“ und „Ice Machine“ auch durchaus tanzkompatible Klänge an.

In den vergangenen Jahren haben BOX AND THE TWINS bereits mit Künstlern wie Esben And The Witch, Roosevelt, Chameleons Vox, The KVB, Keluar, Be Forest, Minuit Machine, Hante, Schonwald, Evi Vine, Leave The Planet und A Projection die Konzertbühne geteilt. Für März 2017 ist derzeit eine gemeinsame Tour mit der deutschen Band KLEZ.E in Planung.

CHAMELEONS VOX

Mit den Alben “Script Of The Bridge” (1983), “What Does Anything Mean? Basically” (1985) und “Strange Times” (1986) hat die britische Band THE CHAMELEONS drei Post Punk-Klassiker für die Ewigkeit geschaffen und reiht sich in die musikalische Riege von New Wave-Helden wie Joy Divison, The Cure, The Sound und Echo And The Bunnymen ein. Nach nur sechsjährigem Bestehen löste sich das Quartett aus Manchester 1987 infolge des Todes ihres Managers Tony Fletcher viel zu früh auf. Doch ihr melancholisch-verhallter Gitarrensound wirkt bis heute nach: Hits wie “Second Skin” und “Don’t Fall” haben schon lange Kultstatus erreicht und aktuelle Bands wie Interpol oder Editors zeigen sich noch immer davon beeinflusst. Seit 2009 tourt der ehemalige Sänger und Frontmann MARK BURGESS unter dem Namen CHAMELEONS VOX und präsentiert mit befreundeten Musikern den Backkatalog der Gruppe live auf den Bühnen der Welt. Beim Konzert im Kölner Luxor werden sich CHAMELEONS VOX vor allem den Songs vom legendären Debütalbum “Script Of The Bridge” widmen und das Set mit weiteren Klassikern bereichern.

Neben der Band MINUIT MACHINE betreibt die frühere PHOSPHOR-Keyboarderin Hélène de Thoury auch noch ihr Soloprojekt HANTE. Nach dem erfolgreichen Album „Her Fall And Rise“ ist diesen Januar endlich das sehnlichst erwartete Zweitwerk „This Fog Never Ends“ erschienen, das den dunklen Cold Wave-Krachern des Debüts in punkto sphärischer Intensität in nichts nachsteht.
Hante FB

Jenseits ihrer Band BOX AND THE TWINS beschreitet die Musikerin BOX VON DÜE abseitigere Wege. Befreit von den üblichen Songstrukturen ist ihre Performance ein düsteres Experiment zwischen analogen Instrumenten, digitaler Technik und betörend-verstörender Stimme.

Info:

After the trio’s debut EP “Our Fears” BOX AND THE TWINS (ex-Coctail Twins) continue to venture forward into the dark recesses of their sound cosmos. On their sophomore EP “Below Zero”, BOX’s intimate and sorrowful vocals echo through a sound nebula of reverb-enthused guitars and cool veils of synth. The song “Perfume Well” is accompanied by the visually powerful music video by Cologne-based director Gero Kutzner. The EP is rounded off with two intricate reworkings of “Rooms Made Of Dust” by D’EVOÉ and “Sometimes The Waves” by the british band EVI VINE.
