Certainly by the time they were recognised as SRF 3 Best Talent in November 2013, the band Silhouette Tales from Lucerne had emerged from obscurity.
Their latest EP, "Circle" (2015) was featured as the soundtrack to the SRF series "Seitentriebe". Now, the band has just released some new, filigree songs which sound like signals sent from distant worlds. With their fourth album "Moonshots", they reach for the stars.
The work was produced by Greg Obrist, and Luk Zimmermann has once more contributed his ideas. The name "Moonshots" says it all: "Last November" takes you on a flight over barren lunar landscapes, the cover song "Those Were The Days" gazes wistfully back at the world as it once was. In "Fly And Dive", you are strapped into the space shuttle for countdown, "Moonshots" catapults you roughly out of orbit, until a spherical flight through weightlessness begins with "Tidal Wave". The personal stories and memories which the text sketches in outline underline the dark sound of the band. It is the voice of Irene Althaus, melancholic, strong and yet fragile, which shapes the sound of the band and carries you away – all the way to the moon.
