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.”
