Minimal Schlager is the moniker of Fran Parisi, who develops minimal beats with grinding bass synths; with his siren sister Alicia giving the whispers, screams and chants on top. Together they deliver something that blends industrial, psychedelics and confessional storytelling.
Killing Is About Us is their debut single, released by Duchess Box Records, the label which gave us Gurr, Sofia Portanet and many more. The tracks were recorded in Fran’s home studio using just a collection of toy synthesizers and cheap drum machines bought on eBay. He has the following to say about the song: “This song is based on a poem by Antidio Cabales, about how quickly things go rotten, how the surrounding noise will devour you…but still there’s time to love.“
