Dead High Wire release their debut single ‘Pray For Us’!

15th of September 2018, 17:21

EN

Dead High Wire release their debut single ‘Pray For Us’: an absurd, politically critical meta-pamphlet in considerably bad times, on 1st September, as the first single from the debut album with the same title. The full album will be released later this Autumn.

On this debut, Pray For Us, the gentlemen of the Antwerp-Malines Post-Punk band Dead High Wire sound more savage and raw than ever before.

This time they are entirely responsible for the idiosyncratic sound by themselves. # tapedeck, # DIY, # chorus-on-everything...

The recordings and mixing of the album happened at an undisclosed location in Antwerp with an Otari tape recorder and kilometres of tape.

Pray For Us is the lead single of the eponymous debut album. The trio shoots from the hip: "Wasting all those years, facing all those fears, wasting all my time, convicting all these crimes".

Darkish, maybe, but in the video Ruben, Sacha and Thijs show their true nature. Because this song - and by extension the whole album - is a 'meta-pamphlet' with a big wink to everything that is human and how man rather awkwardly tries to transcend his earthly limitations. And... that's okay. # ornot.

You can find the single online from 1st September (iTunes, Spotify...). The release of the debut album will later be available online and on vinyl.

Dead High Wire releases eerste single!

Pray For Us: absurd meta-pamflet in redelijke kuttijden

Dead High Wire lost op 1 september Pray For Us, de eerste single van het gelijknamige debuutalbum. De langspeler komt er later dit najaar.

Op hun debuut, Pray For Us, klinken de heren van de Antwerps-Mechelse postpunkband Dead High Wire snediger en rauwer dan ooit.

Voor de eigenzinnige sound zijn ze deze keer trouwens helemaal zelf verantwoordelijk. # tapedeck, # diy, # chorus-on-everything... Opnames en mix van het album gebeurden op een undisclosed location in Antwerpen met een Otari-bandopnemer en kilometers tape.

Pray For Us is de lead single van het gelijknamige

debuutalbum. Het trio valt met de deur in huis. “Wasting all those years, facing all those fears, wasting all my time, convicting all these crimes”.

Donker, mja, maar in de videoclip tonen Ruben, Sacha en Thijs hun ware aard. Want deze song – en bij uitbreiding de hele plaat – is een 'metapamflet' met een vette knipoog naar alles wat menselijk is en hoe de mens nogal onhandig zijn aardse beperkingen probeert te overstijgen. En... dat dat best ok is. # ofwelofni.

De single vind je vanaf 1 september online (iTunes, Spotify...). De release van het debuutalbum volgt later dit najaar. Het album is dan online en op vinyl verkrijgbaar.

HOLYGRAM

MODERN CULTS

Music for the lost: HOLYGRAM‘s music blends post-punk and new wave with Krautrock and shoegaze elements into a headstrong, multi-layered and thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the 1980s, including a resolute look to the future: driving, dark and full of catchy moments. The wide range of influences of the five band members, who got together in Cologne’s vibrating musical landscape in 2015, are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU!. Their unpretentious approach to their own icons proves that references to the past must always be future-oriented, too. Previously impossible-to-combine elements come together cleverly to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

The band who always wrap themselves in dense wafts of mist and cool lighting on stage have played numerous festivals, such as the Mailfeld Derby, Wave-Gotik-Treffen and New Waves Day and accompanied British act OMD on their 2017 European tour. At the end of the year, HOLYGRAM are set to embark on an extensive support tour with VNV Nation through Europe and the US to introduce their debut album Modern Cults live.

The recording takes up where their self-titled 2016 EP left off and intensifies HOLYGRAM‘s contemplation of themes such as big cities, alienation and anonymity, hope and memories, love and identity: These constant reflections always interact closely with the band’s unmistakable sonic guise. The atmosphere oscillates between the brutal sounds of the big city and the fragility of the people that lose themselves in it – intelligently observed scenarios of a world falling apart in which individuals have long ceased to play a leading role. The eleven songs were created over the past few years and some of them have already been tested in a live context. Numbers such as the title track Modern Cults or the spherical Still There follow their protagonist on a nocturnal trip through clubs, flashbacks, run-down neighbourhoods and the abysses of the human psyche. The diversity of the cityscape as a reflection of the people who live in it seems like an Ariadne‘s thread that the five musicians offer to their listeners to help them navigate this broad stylistic range. Because HOLYGRAM don’t see themselves as representatives of a specific genre. Melancholy walls of guitar sounds (Distant Light) interchange with uplifting bass runs (Hideaway), chilly synthesizers meet stoically driving rhythms and together make up the projection screen for the ambivalent stories that HOLYGRAM tell in their music. While 1997 wanders through forgotten places in a broken-up relationship, the song She’s Like The Sun is an ironic confrontation with the failure to achieve unreachable targets. Autobiographical elements blend with fiction, the past melts into the present and they all become a simultaneously oppressive yet hopeful vision of human (co-) existence: a person caught in the mist of their own dreams at the intersection of outer and inner world, between fiction and reality.

This is also where the first single release Signals (scheduled for release on 7 September) comes in, featuring a new-wave guise that belies an emotionally torn lyric, elevating the deeply melancholy chorus (“Sometimes when I close my eyes I see you walk away / And everytime the sun comes up the feeling is the same”) to a pop-like anthem, illustrating that in this world people are only cogs in a much bigger, increasingly autonomous machine.

For the production of their album, which was recorded at Cologne’s Amen Studios, Patrick Blümel (vocals), Sebastian Heer (drums), Marius Lansing (guitars), Pilo Lenger (synthesizers) and Bennett Reimann (bass) enlisted the support of Maurizio Baggio, who also produced The Soft Moon’s albums Deeper and Criminal. Together they worked on the band’s established sound, enhancing it with a myriad of facets.

NEWS 41 years ago Iggy Pop released Lust for Life (29th August 1977)

41 years ago Iggy Pop released Lust for Life (29th August 1977)

29th of August 2018, 13:25

Today it’s exactly 41 years ago that Iggy Pop released Lust for Life (29th August 1977). It was his second solo studio album and also his second collaboration with David Bowie, following The Idiot that was released earlier in the same year. As well as achieving critical success, it was Iggy Pop's most commercially popular album to date, and remains his only Gold-certified release in the UK. The recording sessions for this album took place at the Hansa Studio by the Wall (Berlin) between April and June ’77, almost immediately after the The Idiot promotion tour which ended on 16th April.

Pop has stated, "David and I had determined that we would record that album very quickly, which we wrote, recorded and mixed in eight days and because we had done it so quickly, we had a lot of money left over from the advance, which we split.”

Lust for Life reached number 28 in the UK Album Chart and is his second highest-performing release in that country after 2016's Post Pop Depression. Initially the album did well in the US too but the sudden death of Elvis Presley (16th August 1977) caused record label RCA to quickly reissue Presley's catalogue and any promotional focus for Pop's album was lost.

Bowie, Pop and engineer Colin Thurston produced the album under the pseudonym "Bewlay Bros”, a name retrieved from a track on Bowie’s album Hunky Dory.

Besides probably the most popular track Lust For Life, The Passenger also found its way to alternative clubs and dance floors all over the world. Even if it was initially released as the b-side track of the 7” single Success.

Siouxsie and The Banshees made a cover of The Passenger in 1987 for their all-cover-versions album Though The Looking Glass. Iggy Pop praised their version and stated: "That's good. She sings it well and she threw a little note in when she sings it, that I wish I had thought of, it's kind of improved it … The horn thing is good."

David Bowie covered Tonight (minus the opening lines referencing drugs) with Tina Turner, along with Neighborhood Threat, on his 1984 release Tonight.
