ANT ANTIC The Vienna/Berlin based duo IN ITALIA
The Vienna/Berlin based duo ANT ANTIC just released their debut album, “Wealth”, on Seayou Records. The freshman release from Tobias Koett and Marco Kleebauer checks off all the latest trends: striking vocals, loads of synths somewhere between pop and club sounds, and of course, electronic drums. Cover (c) Ant Antic Cover (c) Ant Antic The marching order on “Wealth” is clear from the very beginning. Electro pop that can also work in a club. And thanks to the approachable vocals and the punchy and techno friendly synths, it is a combination that works. Tobias Koett provides a voice that is melancholic enough to bring broody types on board but also provides a certain sex appeal. The pre-release single “4Pole” is just one of many songs in which the vocals are enriched with electronic effects to help move the music in a club direction. The fiercely performed lyrics “Lucky phlegmatic me. I don’t care. Fuck off or fuck me” can easily be understood to be a reference to online dating apps which just emphasises their successful navigation of the contemporary zeitgeist. Another track that throws down some finely crafted melodies is “Histamine”. In the final track ANT ANTIC pull out all the stops and bring the album to a close with grand emotions and come back to the zeitgeist with electronically enhanced finger snapping. It’s clear that the two creative minds behind ANT ANTIC have a good feeling for modern sounds and the skills to adapt them to their own style. It’s also clear they are old hands in the effective use of synths and electronic drums, and the entire album exudes a professionalism in production. ANT ANTIC will have fans of electro-pop eating out of their hands.
