After the stormy "Hunt Like Lions" EP (released November 2017 on 8mm music) City At Dark (ex-RÁN) are now releasing their long awaited debut album via their new label home Snowhite Records (Zoot Woman, The Sounds, Oum Shatt). The Berlin-based duo continues their artistic and currently unique pop design.
The duo - consisting of the Viennese artist Laura Landergott (Ja, Panik) and the composer / guitarist Yair Karelic (Mystical Communication Service) from Tel Aviv - along with their playful brilliance and lascivious black-and-white aesthetics constantly captivates the listener. Their unique, musical broadcast consists of a signature sound, including deliberately reduced beat and track arrangements, the numerous atmospheric sound layers, as well as the overflowing guitar virtuosity. Anyone who has experienced the two live, as recently at the Reeperbahn and Fusion Festival, knows about the ensnaring interplay of an unequal yet perfectly harmonizing outfit, who instinctively threaten to lose themselves in the depths of their songs and lyrics with an almost amorous passion. Always at the limit, ready to experiment. They now celebrate their musical vision in ten songs. Here urban pop meets contemporary postpunk, dark wave meets psychedelic rock. The band's debut-album was produced together with Dirk Feistel (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) in Studio X in Berlin.
