Solar Fake - Enjoy Dystopia (CD)
Rlease Date 12.02.2021
Three years after "You Win. Who Cares?", Solar Fake deliver the follow-up "Enjoy Dystopia" - an album that consistently takes the path of its fan-favourite predecessor several steps further.
Singer Sven Friedrich agrees: "There are some songs that are closer to 'You Win. Who Cares?', others are a little further away. With each new album, I look a little beyond the end of my nose and try to bring new elements into the music without 'betraying' the Solar Fake sound. One innovation is particularly close to the heart of the likeable singer: 'For the first time there is a German-language song on the album.
We never had that with Solar Fake before. I had the chorus lines directly in my head when I wrote the song. And somehow I didn't want to translate it into English, that would have been a compromise and with Solar Fake I never compromise. Never.' Strong words, but in fact 'It's none of your business' fits perfectly on the album and shows a previously unknown facet in the Solar Fake sound.
In terms of content, however, everything is the same, and Solar Fake fans can look forward to anger poured into melodies and beats: 'The album is dominated by aggression, which is sometimes more obvious and sometimes more subtle. Of course, there are also quieter and sadder moments.
But in general, those who don't know what to do with their feelings, their aggression, their despair of mankind, their helplessness in the face of general stupidity, especially in this day and age, will feel understood'.
