Cover versions EP “Ghosts Of The West Coast” coming in May

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 🙂 ).

Free download: Live at The Viper Room

In the studio: Working on a new song

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?

Live video: “Die Roboter – The Robots” Kraftwerk-Cover @ The Viper Room

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”:

Live video: “Let Me Walk Alone” @ the Viper Room

no:carrier’s “Wisdom & Failure” available now

cover_wisdom_failureToday is the big day: Our new album “Wisdom & Failure” is out now in North America and Japan (CD) and digitally worldwide. With the new album new explore the tension and relation between “Wisdom & Failure“. From melancholic retrospection to perseverance on difficult paths. The songs deal with the strength that is necessary to go your own way.

The album is available digitally worldwide at iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Beatport and other retailers.
The CD is released in North America and Japan today and can also be ordered from Amazon, Bandcamp and is available at your local record store.
In Europe the CD will be available from May 2nd.

Songwriter Chris Wirsig says, “It’s about being strong, fighting against adversities. You look back, you learn from the past, and maybe you also despair of it. But you stick to your intentions, do what you want, and you go for it, regardless of what others say, regardless of which opinions you hear, regardless of if you’ll succeed or fail.” Throughout the twelve songs the protagonists keep looking back, and are haunted by the ghosts of the past. Hurtful and dunning memories of past events (“Last Scene,” “Alone Now”) stand next to strong characters that carve their own path (“Let Me Walk Alone,” “Losing Sight Of The Coast”) amongst tragic stories about failure (“The Nine Days’ Queen,” “Sunset Castle”). But above all else remains wisdom and strength, both of which can
arise from failure (“Wisdom And Failure”).

The relationship between wisdom and failure is also portrayed on the cover, which has been designed by the young
Californian artist Cassidy Bliss Cooper. It shows the title song’s “two girls called Wisdom and Failure” in watercolor.
