There is a snaking beat which slithers out of the speakers and in to the room, which like a Cobra sizing up prey, sways from side to side before suddenly disappearing through the carpet to reappear in a different corner with unblinking staring eyes – yet rather than becoming concerned the listener finds themselves flexing the neck, shoulders, hips and knees and swaying in similar hypnotic action with equally fixed gaze.

The combinations of electronica, instrumentation and vocal, which is the staple of HERR ALT, has a counter-intuitive organic flow in to which the audience fuses their own central nervous system.

Monologue – Single – HERR ALT is available on iTunes.*

HERR ALT

Combining electronic loops, guitar and bleeding vocal allows HER ALT to deliver music which is simultaneously nu-disco whilst equally retrospective of ’80s synth-rock.

More typically to be found in stage performance where the visual and electronic loops modulated by stage played guitar allow the material a more extemporised and organic feel, Rush, nonetheless, (available on bandcamp) makes a welcome introduction for those of us not able to get to see live performance.
