Neues Album des Franco-Schottischen Trios MAESTRO. Direkt, messerscharf, virtuos. Pop mit Punk-Attitüde.
It’s been 30 minutes now or so that the Franco-Scottish trio Maestro have been on stage depicting all the shades of mourning times, waves of reconciliation, reassurance and anger. Their second ambum “Monkey Business” is an attempt to understand why these things happen to us over and over.
Suddenly all the rage makes sense because good old England has invented an angry idea that is called Pop. Tonight Maestro are navigating through the oddest extremes of Pop with a punk deviance. From off-kilter arabic synth riffs (“Should I”), to an unexpected perverted quirky trap (“Dirty Bitch”). It’s not surprising the Scottish man is in charge of the words and singing - even if Scotland was about to leave this old England... They are cooking a similar soup, but this is not the same old cup of tea folks...
Maestro are direct, sharp and acidic, barbaric and virtuoso, their music is ultimately enlightened by a magical combination of electronic textures present within their driven, pure and provocative music.But their deconstructed sound, just on the right side of the Mountains of Madness, never loses its harmonic motive. Here and there broken hymns appear and peel themselves out of 30 years of club history.
