aboutOnce the band looked at the river
Isarin their hometown Munich after a floodwater, they had the idea for the album's theme. The water completely changed the river bed: some parts of the gravel beach have been washed away, whereas some new islands have been formed and offered a new home for birds. It showed an impressive picture: every change may also be a chance.
The new album
observations in a time of chancesof
the tinopener's artis like a mirror of a time full of disruption, changes, and chances. The tracks tell different stories of suppression and renewal, doubts and hope, the danger of concentration of resources and power, hatred spread by populists, or the impact of social media. In addition, some tracks also contain very private stories and thoughts.
The music combines modern electronica with 1980s-style synth-pop sounds, trance tunes with dance beats, cineastic soundscapes or darkwave melodies with trip hop rhythms. Great melodies are supported by variable vocals, often arranged like an additional electronic instrument, which strengthens the atmosphere of every track. This fascinating album provides the perfect soundtrack for the time we live in.
As an add-on to the music the album contains an artwork for every track.
