Video Premiere: Klinke auf Cinch – ‘tett’

Klinke auf Cinch are back: Thuringias leading electronica project will release new songs after a four year break. The EP named “Four” means a thorough development within the Jena based band’s repertoire. Being their fourth release on vinyl, the EP contains four tracks with four vocalists. Thereby, Four is a true restart – forceful, right to the point and deep in sound. Today we premiere the super slick video for ‘tett’, taken from the new Four EP.

With Klinke auf Cinch, live electronica becomes a musical happening. Deep harmonic arrangements and clattering rhythm foundations created by Clemens Kynast form up the center. Changing vocalists complete the unique line up. The KaC cosmos is a homogenous continuum, created by curbed house sounds, accelerated Jazz, reduced pop and fragmented hip hop. Musicians’ virtuosity meets cool artificial elegance. Four companions of mastermind Clemens Kynast take care of the vocals. Paula Akinside has already put her mark on the sounds of Klinke’s first release “Palumar” of 2008. Now she’s singing on “tett”. Having shared the microphone on “highs & hills” of 2012, Patrick Föllmer and Martin Hansmann (Hansmann &Klausing) add their voices to “mini” and “clsr”. “Keen” is being sung by Arpen, who’s collaborated with Clemens Kynast in an interdisciplinary art project. The result are four cooperations at eye level, with the voices influencing the music and vice versa.

Four will be released April 22 through Analog Soul. You can pre-order on Bandcamp here or on limited vinyl here.
