Listeners of the previous albums will recognize a style that remains dreamy and atmospheric and popsongs that are sometimes laid-back yet melancholic, even enigmatic, at other times dramatic and intense. Though, you dont have to listen to the songs on a rainy day to recognize: It is by far their most profund record todate. “It was cool to be so personal. Yet, because we are all so different, what you hear is a conversation, not just a monologue”, says Marcus Schmickler.
Their new, 4th album features appearances of very different vocalists: Julia Hummer is a prominent young German actress, who tours with her own band "Too Many Boys" since the release of her debut in 2005. Julee Cruise, who was already featured on the last album. Third guest vocalist is New York based German artist and writer Jutta Koether. She is also known as co-founder of leading German popmagazine “SPEX”. Fourth Vocalist is Marcus himself on one song as well as backround on other songs.
Also responsible for the production, Marcus Schmickler is well known in a lot of different contexts related to electronic music, let it be beat oriented, improvised music or classical music. He has just recently produced for Bands like Norwegian JAGA JAZZIST or Swedish Band TAPE and composed for choir and orchestra. His voice can also briefly be heared on one track on the recent Matmos album „The rose has teeth...“ Last but not least Pluramon made the Soundtrack to the German Movie "The Big Sellout".
