Burning in Blue
Old School Union
It's exactly five years since Veljanov and Horn released their last studio album "April Skies" but they haven't just been twiddling their thumbs in the meantime.
"Indicator" doesn't simply rehash tried and tested formulas. It heralds a whole new era. Anyone who's always appreciated Deine Lakaien will find on this album a fine range of what the duo has always done well. Both musicians have, after all, crammed tons of experience into their tour luggage. One aspect is even more important than their return to electronic sounds: Deine Lakaien now work to create intimacy with their listeners. They now have courage enough for poetic simplicity of a kind they have rarely attempted before. Their songs may still be highly emotional but divested of any touch of pathos they sound refreshingly carefree and light.
"Indicator" is a multifaceted, intense album that embraces the world's diversity, dreams and hopes, yet also relentlessly faces up to reality. The title "Indicator" must be understood also in that light.
