The opener Picknick starts off with a distorted guitar, driven by a static powerful beat. Cymbals, chimes and percussion build a perfect carpet for Aurica’s voice.
No matter. A monotonous bassline, a minimalistic 4/4 beat and a lonely guitar theme are topped with haunting vocals. Addictive.
Driver. A man in trouble with both the mob and the police. A real sticky situation.
A 6 year old boy is telling us a story, while machine beats, industrial grooves and shimmering layers are pulsating underneath.
She and He. Droning pads and hypnotizing vocals pull us deeper into Karbidangeln Mit Aurica’s bitter sweet universe.
Raindrops. A pluckering beat, mellow pads and a playful melody. Raindrops fall on my head. Beautiful and meditative.
For Nothing. Gloomy and cloudy synth layers, a sublime beat and rhythmical synth lines. A pensive tune with a sad note. Not all glitter is golden.
Sunny Day. Synth layers slowly build up until a marching beat kicks in like a small explosion. Voices and a grooving bass line emerge, and take us along.
