Product description

Product Description

Unmap unveil their impressive debut album Pressures, due for release via cutting edge Berlin based label Sinnbus on 2nd December 2013. The band s mesmerizing debut single When To Lead And When To Follow was released just before the summer, showcasing the bands unique blend of electronica, RnB and indie creating a sound that belongs purely to Unmap

Beginning on a sombre note, Wire Rule is sparse and tribal, whilst Pirates feels like AlunaGeorge and NZCA/LINES on a weird and wonderful comedown. Mariechen Danz s vocals are beguiling, deep and breathy yet strangely beautiful as heard on Stone Head . It s tracks like this and When To Lead And When To Follow that exhibit the band s skill when it comes to great writing, more akin to chamber pop, with off kilter melodies and strange time signatures much like Blonde Redhead s earlier work. More experimental tracks like the forthcoming single The Gold Route and Purify straddle the line between avant-garde electro pop and RnB, somewhere between Tricky and Grimes. The album explores many themes; cautionary tales of paranoia, protest and colonialism, the barriers of thought, religion and language, the fallacies of power and the weight of impermanence are translated into the language of liquid pop which wears its influences deftly and proudly, woven together by Mariechen s Irish storyteller roots.

Comprised of Mariechen Danz (vocals), Alex Stolze (violin, guitar, electronics), Matthias Geserick (bass) and Thomas Fietz (e-drums), the band started life with Mariechen and Alex with the intention to make music to soundtrack her art performances. However, not before long, the pair s soulful, lucid melodies took a life of their own and Unmap was born. Alex had previously worked with Berlin based bands Dictaphone and Bodi Bill and as the songs took shape, Matthias and Thomas were added to the mix.

Review

Not much is known about Berlin based band UNMAP apart from the fact that they're super new, signed to German label Sinnbus and they sound pretty darn promising. --Artrocker.tv

There's something utterly intriguing about this group that'll have you thinking about them even hours after your first look. --Femalefirst.co.uk
