With their new album, ROCKETS & SWORDS, the duo is moving into familiar terrain. POPGEFAHR was DE/VISION’s first step in enhancing their acoustic world by adding much appreciated retro sounds. Pursuing this direction, they have found a refreshingly clean line that lends the album a distinctive feature and puts an emphasis on the band’s strong songwriting abilities. Band member Thomas explains the concept, “Things were meant to be simpler, clean-structured and lucid while not completely overloaded – yet still very powerful, rich in diversity and full of complexities.”
The songs on "ROCKETS & SWORDS“ captivate with their pointed beats and focused hook lines, providing each song with irresistible, addictive qualities. “Boy Toy“ comes across like a lost relict from the new-romantic 80’s era with its smooth background choir and furious retro gimmick, exuding cool Kraftwerk elegance while belching out disturbing industrial chunks. The heavenly infatuating “Superhuman“ is infused with brilliant sound escapades that carry on throughout the album like a colorful potpourri of electronic music history. Even heart-breaking ballads like “Beauty of Decay“ and “Want to Believe“ enhance their sound structure with surprising elements, blending in harmoniously while adding a tingling tension to the chemistry of the song. This especially comes to the fore of the impressive “Brotherhood of Man” which brings guitar riffs, a pulsating beat and Crystin Fawn’s voice to a kaleidoscopic symbiosis. The singer who was first discovered by successfully creating remixes for the album “Popgefahr – The Mix” with her band.
