After quite an amount of time and quite a lot of changes we are really quite – no, enormously – happy to release our new album: today ?
And we hope you like it
We’d like to thank Dntel, Mary Lattimore, Radioactive Man and MimiCof so much for contributing!! It’s been an honor to work with you!!! Big thanks to Mario Thaler, who already produced “Scary World Theory” and “Faking The Books” and helped us on this one too. There are a whole lot of other people which we can’t name all: We are grateful!!
Here is the second single from “Two Windows”.
The album will be released on Sept 8th.
It’s a coverversion – Valerie simply chose the most masculine song in her music library. Because coverversions need to be far away, maybe even the opposite to oneself
Valerie loves the original, she’s even got the 10inch. So don’t hang her…
After a seven year-hiatus and after reforming the band, we are very curious – not to say nervous – how you will like the first single of the new record…
The album named “Two Windows” will be released on september 8th.
The video for “Deep Dream” was done by Lali Puna (Christian Heiß and Valerie Trebeljahr) with a little help from their friend Jacqueline Hofer, who filmed part of the material, cut it and gave helpful advice and input.
“As the song spins together the political problem of data-surveillance and the private problem of love, we thought on how to visualize it for the video. We found the perfect translation in letting an oscilloscope visualize the music. It becomes data.
And we wanted the lyrics to appear in the style of the coding language BASIC. As this language comes from a time when the internet as we know it today wasn’t invented. (Strangely Valerie had to learn BASIC as a kid in a summer course.) BASIC sort of stands for the innocence, the time when everybody still believed that the internet would make the world a better, a more democratic place. Last step was to turn Valerie into sort of a robot.”
Valerie did a mix for Pop-Kultur Berlin. A very nice festival with Liars, Fatima Al Qadiri, Matthew Herbert, Mogwai, Thurston Moore, Roosevelt, Algiers and many more. Actually she’s gonna deejay there. Something she didn’t do for years, so it will probably be quite funny 🙂
