Elektroklänge: Mechanische Tänze Nos. 1-4 EP (2016).

elektroklange mechanical danceThe entire point of Elektroklänge is wanting to be Kraftwerk when they grow up. Not an uncommon aspiration, but not a bad one if you can pull it off, and they do okay. This is their first record for Alfa Matrix and you can preview it here. It’s one four-bar figure in five lengthy variations (in four languages) and sounds like a train. Every electronic band has a train song. OMD even had two. Elektroklänge have one, “Approach to Tokyo”, as a B-side here and also over on their Soundcloud, along with their first single. This is a good band and I was pleased to see this was out.
