Description

"Your album is sooooo killing. Extra extra good. I love it. Congrats, for me it's an instant classic." - Kurt Rosenwinkel "Remember the name Lucia Cadotsch you're going to be hearing a lot of it!", wrote to the British "Guardian" about the Swiss singer. Together with the Berlin based saxophonist and composer Wanja Slavin - according to SZ an artist "between genius and madness" - she opens up a whole new chapter with LIUN + The Science Fiction Band: Urban music with dark beats, dazzling synths and pulsating hooks. Wanja Slavin's multilayered orchestral arrangements are contrasted with Lucia's frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements. LIUN The Science Fiction Band is the creative product of Lucia Cadotsch and Wanja Slavin's obsessive exploration of the interplay between musical genres and also their own complexly woven reference points. They create a contemporary expression that merges the digital and analogue worlds. It all started in 2012 in a secluded cabin in the forests of Brandenburg when the world was supposed to end and where the duo spent three months writing songs and watching splatter movies, waiting for the apocalypse. Sadly nothing exciting happened but the recordings made during this time pushed them into new territories that would accompany each artist as they evolved in the years that followed. LIUN The Science Fiction Band meanders between dark, forceful beats and fragile melodic contours. Wanja's complex, multilayered arrangements are contrasted with Lucia's frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The Songs reference strong-headed female artists and characters such as Kiddo, Foxy Brown or Princess Mononoke and Eleven. Struggling to find the ideal band set up, it seemed like a never ending passion project. Finally, the duo decided to record a "fictional" band and Wanja took on many roles and instruments in order to achieve a progressive, orchestral sound. Berlin's diverse music scene pitched in and contributed with harps, trumpets, flutes and trombones to add warm textures to the synthetic sound landscape. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements.
