Animal – Single
Back to the 80s with the push of a button: What follows are playfully swallowing synth-sounds, drums that sound like original from the 808 and an avalanche of screeching sprechgesang – but reworked with refreshing modernity and self-evidence. Bundled in the new single ‘Animal’, the former electro-duo continues to go into the fluffy clouds of bubble-electro-pop; but not without scratchily and bitingly breaking out again and again.
With ‘Animal’, FYE & FENNEK create a kind of super-ego that can’t be impressed by anything and declares itself the measure of all things by which others have to orient themselves. “Man stages himself as a work of art,” says FYE and continues: “Just as the boundaries between identities become blurred, so they become in language.” The logical consequence is that the Berlin duo mixes English and German: ‘My smile’s a tausend million dollar wert’ is the hook that burns itself into the leg like the edge of the open oven door.
Animal’ is the next release of the electro duo FYE & FENNEK, who seem to take a completely new and unpredictable path. With their previous single ‘Better Lover’ they not only tried out new sounds, they also caused a stir in the indie electro scene. Now follows ‘Animal’.
