Around two years after a first EP with an impossible name (''Ich sehe im vorbeifahrenden Auto den Unfall mitvorbeifahren in Zeitlupe und rueckwaerts'', Meta Matter, 2017) Veronika J. Koenig released her more aptly titled debut album. "Heavy Listening" shamelessly requests the listener's full attention as only few pop records can. Never losing that nag for a catchy riff or line, the record finds Koenig in much more tangible spheres than on her first EP. Designed as a conceptual journey from start to finish, it declares war on the much discussed death of the album and shows just how far a full, intentional body of work can go.
Her new EP ''Trauma Bounce'' arrives in late June of 2020, spearheaded by the fun, sexy, sad ''Subway Surfer'' - out now.
