The second of four mini-EPs leading up to the Dark Age Day Dreamfull length.Contains the songsDistant WorldandSilicon God.
Distant World, the lead single fromAGE(the 2nd mini-EP) from avant-pop outfitEutropicfinds the trio exploring the theme of physical and spiritual isolation. The music was sketched out at the band’s rehearsal space, while the lyrics were put to ink when vocalistDominique Hindermannfound himself snowed-in for days, alone, in a cabin up in the Swiss Alps. Destiny would have it that someone before him leftAntoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Little Princethere.
The book put Dominique in the protagonist’s shoes, infusing his precarious situation with something of a cosmic / mythological hue. The lyrics practically wrote themselves. The finished song sounds like a soothing, coiling mantra set to a sonic rendition of solar flares and meteor showers. The world spins full of celestial bodies aflame. Vast space. The arrangement is full of floating synth artefacts rooted in a steady, chunky bass pulse and elastic, wobbly kicks. Space is the place and it’s full of groove.
Silicon Godexamines the power dynamic between Silicon Valley mavericks and a society that operates using the tools they have designed. Under closer inspection, what comes to light is the fact that the entire exchange is based on harnessing the religious instincts of humans, mainly the pursuit of endless youth and immortality. Synth bleeps. Info packages shot at the speed of light. Fiberoptic arteries full of zeros and ones ceaselessly pumping information. High tension. Tight bass. An onslaught of information. Hissing synths. Desire. Sublimation. Ecstasy.
Eutropicare an analog synth-obsessed avant pop trio operating out of Bern, Switzerland. Their music explores human emotion through the prism of a highresolution gradient. It draws from cold and new wave, several iterations of techno and classic 70s electronica. It’s functional, yet introspective – full of nuance, detailed shadings, curious overlaps and idiosyncratic contradictions. Their debut recordDark Age Day Dreamwill be released February 5th 2021 courtesy ofAztec Records UK.
