The big cities lost their prerogative for thrilling electronic music. So the bedroom-studio of Captain Capa and fatherly producer Norman Kolodziej (Bratze, Der Tante Renate) wasn’t built up in Berlin-Friedrichshain or Hamburg-Altona, but straight at Weinberg 8, Bad Frankenhausen, Thuringia. In the shadow of the most skewed steeple of the world. The place, where Hannes and Maik grew up between hippie-kitsch and artsy-chic, battling through the nights with a Super Nintendo, Anime marathons and 1990 emo-hit-karaoke, before they discovered clubculture and flashlight to create a stylistic mix of all these influences, sounding exactly like what they’d love to dance to.
What was carefully put together and slowly cooked on the debut-album “Tonight Is The Constant” - acclaimed as danceable highspeedpop between electro-bam and indiemush by critics and ravekids - is now exploding in extremes on the second longplayer “Saved My Life”. Emo-guitars, brit-pop-vocals and eighties-synthies, bursting out without a blush, always hiding behind the cloak of “the perfect popsong”. Fearlessly slammed together without regards like “Are chiptune-sounds still cool?” or “Can we send another autotune-chorus into the hemisphere!?”, building up melodramatic hymns between 1987 teenie disco, 1998 screamo gig and 2012 indie-floor. Jealousy, cheating and messy lovebirds in their lyrics, a playful dancefloor-attitue in their beats.
