"I have the impression that we recorded a strange pop album, which is colourful and insistent. And which is about the strange temptations of our time - from Tinder to AI, from offline solitude to obsessive self-marketing."
Odd Beholder, the project of Zurich-based musician Daniela Weinmann, releases its debut album "All Reality Is Virtual". In the detailed but precisely articulated pieces Weinmann continues to work on her version of embracing electronica and melancholic pop music. The music, as on the two EPs released so far, is an expression of alienation. In the centre of Odd Beholder the artist meticulously keeps record of the curiosities of the world around her and addresses them in calm yet urgent words.
With the release of their debut EP „Lighting“, the secret hit „Landscape Escape“ and the corresponding video shot in Azerbaijan Odd Beholder has already created quite a stir and was featured on illustrious outlets like NOWNESS, i-D, ZEIT and Clash. After invitations to Reeperbahn, Great Escape, Sziget and m4music Festival, touring as support act of Hundreds, Odd Beholder has released her „Atlas“ EP on Sinnbus and Mouthwatering Records in 2017, followed by "Remixes", a tastefully composed EP with selected adaptations of friends they found on the road or of whom they have become fans: The/Das, Fejká, Hundreds, Alessandro Giannelli, Kalipo, Thomas Atzmann. The debut album "All Reality Is Virtual" is out in October 2018.
