Futurepop in its purest form.
The new release of german producer duo Himmelskinder is futurepop in its purest form. With an energetic upbeat base, the message is delivered in a special youthful way that reaches out with intensity. Normally I would classify the feeling as ‘playful’, if only the lyrics wouldn’t have so much weight and meaning. So, let’s call it ‘serious playfulness’, shall we. There’s always this gorgeous chiptune-ish vibe present, indicating the songs’ heritage, it feels fresh and genuine. The versatile vocals change seamlessly between relaxed vibe and energetic outburst. The backing pulls a lot of tricks, mainly percussive klicks and one-shots, or these arpeggiated fat and saturated synth lines. If you listen closely, you’ll find tick-tacks, risers, and little metallic textures and so much more happening. Overall, the complete mix of ‘Wie es mal war’ is mindblowingly well balanced.
What I like most about this track though is the fact that the track itself is transformed through several stages. What starts calm and playfully melodic evolves into a pulsating atmosphere that finally bursts into expressive energy. This goes back and fourth, reflecting exactly the statement the lyrics dealt with all along: nothing is going to be the same.
