LIVING IN A BOX - ÄTNA

The Dead Lovers' sound is retro, sexy and provocative. Their songs borrow from blues, folk, sixties beat and desert rock, but always remain convincing and unique. Melodic vocal harmonies are weaving a canvas over soundscapes ranging from dirty blues guitar stomps to atmospheric reverb drenched ballads.

LIVING IN A BOX - LIUN + Science Fiction Band

Urban music with dark beats, dazzling synths and pulsating hooks. Multilayered orchestral arrangements are contrasted with a frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements.
