La Boum Fatale’s „Walls“ opens up a first view on new material from the soon to be released debut album „Holygram“. The album documents the past development and shows La Boum Fatale more solid and self-conscious, straight-lined and rough.
The first single „Walls“ is now released as an EP with four versions, illustrating the diverse soundscape of La Boum Fatale. Next to the eponymic piece especially the more open and longer Instrumental of „Walls“ forms the core of the EP. It unfolds all its virtue over the whole length with a gloomy sound. In contrast the weirdly twisted remix of Berlin based producer Comfort Fit leaves hardly anything of the original track using a decent amount of irony. As well as the nobly floating version of sound designer and tinkerer Frieder Nagel. For the single edit of „Walls“ it was possible to win Andreas Bonkowski (Corwood Manual, Siva., I Might Be Wrong) for the vocals. Lyrically and musically „Walls“ summarizes one of the central points of La Boum Fatale as well as „Holygram“: shaking off the dread of change, letting yourself get dragged away from the usual run and enjoy watching doubts and constraints disappear.
Since the release of La Boum Fatale’s debut EP „Damwild“ a lot of time passed. The musical alter ego of the at that time Hamburg based musician and producer Antonio de Spirt started out of nowhere with surprising ease and the secret hit „AAA“ as well as a couple of remarkable electronica listening beauties. Rather than following the usual releasing routine, de Spirt - having moved back to Berlin in the meantime - allows himself the luxury of the experiment. With an open outcome he works on driving live gigs in different set-ups, tries out music on the edge of graphic design, collaborates with producers like Glenn Astro, Sieren or 9b0 and pulls out unconventional remixes for Me And My Drummer, Hundreds or Sizarr.
Last year de Spirt finally works focused on tracks for a whole album. „Holygram“ will be released in winter 2016.
