Two months are enough. My fingers are tingling; my soul craves new music, the heart wants to skip a beat, and the legs need to feel the rhythm again. So, yes, the Weekly5 are back, finally.
The break was necessary to relax. In the end, this small newsletter should remain leisure, a pleasure. Now, I'm hungry again, striving to seek fresh tunes to enjoy and to share. I hope you're as thrilled as I am.
ÄTNA x Meute – Weirdo
Thick beats, bizarre sounds, and raw lyrics – it's the result of an exciting German collaboration. ÄTNA, the celebrated electronica duo, and Meute, a full-blown big band famous for its techno-styled sounds. Put them together, and the outcome has to be earth-shattering.
Weirdo sounds definitely weird. It's dark, obscure, and edgy, but also aggressively addictive. The single is the summer hymn for the outsiders, the zero-fucks-givers. Come along!
The KVB – World On Fire
For a knowledgeable audience, The KVB don't need any introduction. The London-based duo jumps the borders between post-punk, shoegaze, and psychedelic sound since its foundation back in 2010.
World On Fire is quite a perfect introduction to The KVB's soundscape. Driven by synthesizers, the fast-paced track feels as vintage as contemporary—nostalgia clashes with modern breathlessness. Yet, a pompous layer of psychedelic rock covers the whole single.
benzii – Butterflies
The latest release, Butterflies, sounds somehow similar: An obscure mixture of art-pop, electronica, and fast techno beats. Yet, once again, benzii proves to be a musician on the rise.
