After it premiered exclusively on Brutal Resonance last week, the official video for our Don Henley cover version “The Boys Of Summer” is now public on YouTube:
You’ve seen some first still photos on our Facebook page, and we’re happy to announce that the dark, creepy video for our cover version of Don Henley’s “The Boys Of Summer” will be released soon.
Here’s a little first look:
The songs on “Ghosts Of The West Coast” show the American Dream gone wrong with a stalking ex-boyfriend looking for his lost love at the end of the summer (Don Henley’s “The Boys Of Summer”), the perils of fame and showbiz (Belinda Carlisle’s “California”), lost dreams and fortunes leading to homelessness (Tony Carey’s “Room With A View”), and again, lost love (Irish traditional “She Moved Through The Fair”).
Apart from no:carrier’s Cynthia Wechselberger, who sings the somber „She Moved Through The Fair“, the singers are: Melissa Harding („California“), who already worked with artists like Mötley Crüe, Sixx.A.M. and 30 Seconds To Mars, Kalib DuArte („The Boys Of Summer“), who is best known as the lead singer of Audio Terrorist, and Lauralee Brown (“Room With A View”), a well-known singer/songwriter in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our upcoming cover songs EP is set for worldwide release on May 29, 2015. The EP will be available digitally on all platforms as well as special CD edition from our Bandcamp shop. The EP will feature four unlikely cover versions in our own dark electronic style, as well as four different singers: Apart from Cynthia there will be Kalib DuArte, Melissa Harding and Lauralee Brown.
The songs are: “The Boys Of Summer” (Don Henley), “California” (Belinda Carlisle), “Room With A View” (Tony Carey) and “She Moved Through The Fair” (Irish Traditional).
Here’s our traditional Easter song “Jerusalem Upon Your Palm (Easter Egg Remix).

We’re still working on them, but in May we’ll finally release our EP “Ghosts Of The West Coast” with four cover versions. Don’t expect the typical synthpop/electro songs – we will cover more unlikely terrain here, but of course in our Electro Noire style. All songs for the EP will be revealed in the upcoming newsletter this week, so stay tuned (and if you haven’t done so, subscribe – you’ll also get a free song right away ).
So, here it is: Our first Live EP from the first concert we ever played
And it was at one of the greates clubs of Los Angeles, the legendary Viper Room. This free EP features all (minus one for legal reasons) songs we played at this great venue. It’s a raw recording but the sound gets better balanced after the first minutes
Download it from our Bandcamp page.
Here’s a little look behind the scenes: We’re working on some new songs to be released next year – this one’s called “Blackfriar’s Bridge”. It’s still at a very early stage…
But what do you think?
If you’d like to tell your friends about no:carrier, we now have the perfect meme for that
As we’re both German we just had to play a little German traditional song on our tour of the US Westcoast. And what could be more traditional for an electronic band than a Kraftwerk song?
So here’s the video of our live cover version of “Die Roboter – The Robots”:
