about

Rage followed by droning silence: with "Aphasiac", art/experimental pop duo We Will Kaleid release a dystopian still life of communication impossible.

We Will Kaleid have become more musically more diverse. Unforgiving, they still are. They are looking for a strong contrast. In dense electronic songs they prefer direct confrontation to comfortable harmony. Just like in their music, We Will Kaleid seek breakage rather than semblance in their lyrics, challenging and creating their attraction from confrontation. We Will Kaleid create dense and oppressive arrangements with minimalist sound material. Upon rough textures of analog synthesizers, a dark and intoxicating atmosphere is forged with few but multi-faceted beat and voice fragments.

We Will Kaleid make music for those who try not to break in a system that is completely set against them. Who try to preserve their dignity in an all-consuming wasteland. And who inevitably have to fail. On "Aphasiac", We Will Kaleid find a voice deep among all voices, as if in a brutal intoxication. It is a delicate intoxication despite everything. An intoxication that shows a fragile possibility: a way out.

A direct follow-up to 2020's EP "Tounge," "Aphasiac" is a dark resonating space, a poisoned landscape full of hidden traps. The EP traces the grim image of what was already hanging in the air as a threat on "Toungue": anger runs as a common thread through all the pieces, culminating in intense furor, leaving a shambles in its wake.

Now the pieces on "Aphasiac" start where there is actually nothing more to say. Emerged from loneliness and loss, a diary of the past year. Struck back down to earth. At least solid ground.

With "2 Weeks" a disturbing picture opens up immediately. Time that is not enough to detach from oneself and the outside world. Enough, however, to switch from "I'm using" to "I'm medicated", to find another way to separate from oneself.

Depressing to the point of bursting, "Mute" tells of the inability to detach from unhealthy relationships or behavior. Not being able to go forward and not being able to go back, where one's own misery is the driving force in both directions. The incredibly elegant swelling "Terms Of Use" with its chopped up voices is subsequently the truest breakup song of all: Violation of my terms, account disabled.

In the nervously shimmering "Monoatomic", people talk past each other until there is no other option but to collide at full speed. While the mellow, hyperfuturistic "Lure" traces the overload of being completely absorbed and lost in a digital conversation with everyone and no one.

"Polar" is a dark meditation on self-deception, to the point where one no longer recognizes itself. Then "Thigmotropism" closes the EP as a raw, churning hymn to the ability to grow from the things that are insurmountably in your way.

Utillizing electronic and experimental Art Pop, the band focusses on dysfunctional aspects of human communication giving them an insistent sound. we will kaleid continue to strive further into their own sonority, carving it with reductive, yet multifarious fragments of beats and vocals, digitally enhanced and perched on a foundation of analog synthesiser fragments. ... more
