New striking strokes
19 January 2023
Who: An art-pop ambient noise band whose music is full of atmosphere and intensity.
Based in Berlin, the group is fronted by South African-born Lucy Kruger. To encounter
her music is to witness a singular journey of constant reflection that produces an ever-widening arc of creativity. This burning psychedelic folk is both intimate and energetic.
FFO: Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey, Cate Le Bon, Jenny Hval
So far Kruger & her band shared two singles.
– BURNING BUILDING –
Out today. A capricious stunner, going forth and back, featuring a chaotic and cathartic doomsday monologue, while the sickly sticky chorus invites you to press the repeat button. Top!
“I’m catwalking out of a Burning Building.”
– STEREOSCOPE –
A near whispering, slo-mo meditation.
Both mystifying and sensual.
Anika is not far away.
“Your blue eyes
Pressed against the portal
Do you mind if I leave on the light
Do you mind the theft of a line
My my my my morning
My my my my mourning”
Both singles on Spotify.
