With his latest song, nówfrago has once again reached deeply into his wondrous bag of tricks.
`Then the Pawn` is a clever and delusively simple song, as `The Notwist` could not have done it any better. Ingeniously, the song oscillates between sing-along - character and idiosyncratic poetry. The band seems to be peeling the idea for the pop song right out of chamber music. The lyrics are fascinating, as nówfrago mastermind Matthias Gunsch skillfully reconciles clarity with complexity.
`Then The Pawn` is an intriguing piece, which makes us look forward to the upcoming album `Now In Common` even more eagerly.
