Weirdly, the opening of Brandt Brauer Frick‘s new single ‘Plastic Like Your Mother’ sounds oddly similar to the growling opening of Fever Ray’s ‘If I Had A Heart’. The relevance of which is completely lost on us except that the latter’s Karin Dreijer Andersson has an enormously anticipated release with her other band The Knife coming in the near future also. Back on point, though, the Berlin-based trio of manual tech-heads have a third album (since 2010’s Make Me Real and the following Mr. Machine) Miami coming out on !K7 Records, March 18 and are performing soon thereafter at London’s XOYO, March 21.
Since we covered their second album in 2011, they’ve dropped the ‘ensemble’ from their name and loosened up on their puritanical approach to their ‘organic dance music’. Don’t get us wrong though, there still isn’t anything like it and, if the pulsing bass beat and stuttering vocal sample of Om’Mas Keith is anything to go by, the Berlin trio may revolutionise dance music yet.**
