Perth's 5 piece band 'Our Man In Berlin' are winging their way to Melbourne for their single launch and will be performing at The Workers Club (51 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy VIC (03) 9415 6558) this Wednesday the 4th of March 2015. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are $10. Special guests performing on the night are Kalacoma, DXHeaven and Jack Runaway.
Our Man in Berlin released their debut EP is it right? in May 2014 and have been growing in leaps and bounds in airplay and popularity, not to mention a mass following on social media. They're even getting airplay overseas from College stations in the UK, USA, Greece and German radio station FluxFM. It also saw them tour the country twice with 4 of the singles receiving both national and international acclaim. Their Soundcloud page has also been hit so many times, it's starting to develop a bruise.
Molière the single and the band's newest release, shares its name with a 17th century French playwright and his penchant to dabble in tragic comedy. This track uses the themes and similar attributes to 'create the narrative not in comedy, but atop heavy bass lines rhythmic guitars and urgent beats' according to the band.
If healthy praise is anything to go by, according to writer and reviewer Lyndon Blue of Cool Perth Nights, this is what he had to say about the band. "Here's a triumph of indie-rock/electronica fusion, striking up a tasteful symbiosis that surprisingly few bands manage. Intricate drum patterns weave between restrained guitars and ping-pong synth pulsations; verby (but never insipid) vocals flow overhead. This EP's a descendent of "Kid A," Yet it's the inspiration - not imitation - that prevails."
