Neue 12'' Vinyl-EP von Ätna.
ÄTNA are singer and multi instumentalist Inéz and drummer Demian and if you listen to their music it's hard to believe that this mighty sound was crafted by only two musicians. But the most jaw-dropping aspect remains the distinctive music itself. ÄTNA unfold an energetic , highly percussive , dark and twisted version of pop that isn't afraid to take risks. Their music is an adventure, to say the least, riding between powerful extremes whether sensual tenderness or raw furiosity. From dream state to outburst - the abstract beats, playful piano and determined vocal work of Inéz make switching between multiple moods sound effortless. Somewhere between James Blake, Fever Ray and White Stripes the two artists have created their own microcosm.
Inéz and Demian's decision to create a four-piece video suite has led them to some interesting and intense sonic and visual experiences. The challenge of playing all of the pieces in the suite live whilst being filmed in one take creates a unique tension between the artist and the medium. Each unique setting alludes to artistic movements, design icons as well as unique areas one would not expect in today's Germany.
The music on this EP is the recorded result of these live music video takes. ÄTNA create an artistic stream of ideas, and welcome you to get carried away by it.
