The album Ordinary People in an Ordinary World is melting the hedonism and energy of Berlin with the warm sounds of the 60s. It is a concept album imagined by the band to tell true (and sometimes fantastical) stories that reflect on the absurdity of modern life.
With each song written from the point of view of a different character, they touch on subjects like alienation, adulterous postmen, dipsomania and the 9 to 5 whilst treading the path between the surreal and the mundane, always staying true to themselves by writing accessible, melodic, yet experimental songs.
The album was self-produced and engineered by the band at TRIXX Studios in Berlin. Enlisting the help of Robbie Moore (Jesper Munk, LA Salami) for mixing, Pete Smith (Sting, The Police, Van Morrison) as engineer and Rupert Clervaux to master it, the band gives a nod to the nostalgic sounds of the past while keeping their feet firmly in the present.
