"I want him to be perfect; that it is real," so sang Glasperlenspiel with their Hit single "Real" Four years ago this a special moment, which was subsequently to an unparalleled career. Four gold records, Gefeierte concerts, numerous awards - Carolin Niemczyk and Daniel Grunenberg have one with her engaging electropop from tangible texts and incredible melodies own niche created, which can be referred to in a positive sense as pop music.
"Day X", the new album of Glass Bead game, now is exactly at the point where the two previous albums left off - but goes one logical step further: The intoxicating combination of musical standards and authenticity has remained, but Caro and Daniel do not just have to be Lyricist and songwriter noticeably further developed, but also take into account their growing live experiences and expanded their sound to an organic facet that the duo Glasperlenspiel even closer to its core come leaves. Still perfect. Still true.
"We played in the last two years a lot of concerts. And because we play with a full band, we had our songs are band-compatible. So we have a lot tinkered with our sound," says Caro. And Daniel adds: "Accordingly, ›day X‹ become a great symbiosis of proven electric elements and many live effects. "
Compared to Previous album "Unlimited" (2013), which has primarily the latest developments of contemporary club Couture picked up and translated into Glasperlenspiel pop world, acts "Day X" much grounded. Balanced. Of course, the band-defining influences Electronic dance music are still present, stand down in favor of the complete work but in the background. The dominant element of "Day X" is a completely different: diversity - in all respects.
Because Glasperlenspiel grown more on human, musical and total artistic maturity reflects every single track on the album. That puts the tape in a radiant, fresh light which are not only noisy leaves, but also raises new shade. "We are incredibly proud of the plate"Daniel," have because we gained in all areas and reached a new level: Musically, linguistically, content and emotional, "He Thinks a moment and then adds:". We were brave enough to admit dependencies, and it paid off , On the album, every song needs the other to be able to work optimally. For any uncovered difference is the individual character of each piece out. "And this fact makes the disk become more than the sum of its parts. In this case, the already strong enough.
Just take the time first single "Paris", the one as soon not let go with its compelling combination of emotional urgency and musical clarity. "That's one of my favorite songs," admits Caro. "It deals with, inspired by Classic movie 'Casablanca', a eingeschlafene love, hope needs. And this hope is in the city of love - even if the emotions begins around it to crumble just "Impressive in the piece is especially like here mesh content and music to in the verse timidly the doubt be the verbalized confidence and.. musical lightness in the chorus downright blown away - closer you can hardly approach with a pop song on the true life.
Another exciting piece is the opener "Wolves"On which the duo their entry and career theme in the music business. Preceded by a motivating Vocal sample from the TV series "Scrubs" located Glasperlenspiel shy here not sometimes break the common Popsongsmuster and thereby not only for the song itself, but for the entire plate herauszuschÄlen the aforementioned uniqueness that sets this album so: beat and mood swings, rock parts that electronically melt, and phrases that aptly are metaphorical playful and direct at the same time.
Or the Stand-out track "buoyancy", a driving motivation anthem between shimmering electro sounds and whipping catchyness, tinkered in Glasperlenspiel their deeply internalized band philosophy once more a musical monument have: "My heart is a fist in the cage beats / FOr a moment that will live forever." Wow.
And here in a sense come full circle. Because appeared as Glasperlenspiel 2011 her piece "real" on the scene, they have unconsciously done with it the leitmotif what it has always been excellent: in the pop music so rare quality of sincerity and authenticity. Not only the perfect, but also the real thing.
This theme is Caro and Daniel until today remained loyal without being therefore came artistically on the spot. They have their development as people wear can and artistic amendments never with the widespread misunderstanding equated as an artist always bend to need and no longer they will be even be allowed. That leaves you be so palpable even today. So real. So perfect.
