WICHSWUT are celebrating the release of their debut EP on Music’s Not For Everyone Records.
WICHSWUT is the love cruise in the middle of the night in a car with no brakes and the lights turned off.
The Berlin quartet was formed in 2012 by notorious nighttime bandits Eddie Chebbi on vocals and synthesizers, Lucian Busse on bass, Sascha Niemann on guitar and Lars Deutrich on drums. Their sound is the stark consequence of too many dark nights out in the dives and holes of a city that never sleeps, where anger and joy are too close for comfort and the music is always too loud. Broken synthesizers, cryptic voices, scratched-up guitars, voodoo drums and bass lines straight from the crematorium.
The band’s self-titled debut EP was recorded at their Kreuzberg bunker and fuses post punk with krautrock and psychedelic elements. It sounds dark, moody and aggressive, just like winter in Berlin.
There are limbs and a tongue and it’s all pretty emotionnally unstable. Vordemfall is a constant dry/wet game playing around with elements of progressive, noise and krautrock, into a haunted and moody blend. Their tendencies are based on a deeply rooted paradox. Her riffs and vocals are in turns abrasive and lustful – His hits, tribal or hyperactive.
THE HOLLOW MAN
The Hollow Man’s music is a dark and moody virtual soundtrack to a post-nuclear landscape. His latest album ‘Walking Ghost Phase‘ takes the listener to uncomfortable, cold places with only a glimmer of hope hidden behind abandoned buildings.
The live shows feature visuals created by swiss artist The Blind Eye and the visual fragments give the audience some clues to what the world inside The Hollow Man’s head looks like.
