KALKBRENNER’s WAYS OVER WATER was produced in Suol-Studios in Kreuzberg and follows the musical direction he started with his debut single “Wingman” in 2009. On WAYS OVER WATER, KALBRENNER stays with the sonic design that made his previous albums Here Today Gone Tomorrow and Sick Travellin so special–dusty, distorted drums, licks on Rhodes piano or guitars and melodic bass lines within strong electronic tracks. His musical universe doesn’t stick to, but transcends genres like house, techno or pop. One of the most surprising tracks on the album is “Front Of The World,” with its Afro-beat groove and mellow-soul brass parts, that once more proves FRITZ KALKBRENNER‘s versatility. It’s a versatility that, through the disco funk of “Pass The Buck,” the hypnotic house ecstasy of “Pitch Perfect” and the radio-friendly catchiness of “The Sun,” makes for a perfectly infectious album.
Very present is FRITZ’ unique voice that turns tracks like “Heart Of The City,” “One Of These Days” and “Void” into distinguished works, as the vocal takes center stage even more than before. Shot in the picturesque surroundings of Switzerland’s Lake Geneva and scenic streets of Paris by French creative team FREEDOM, the visual accompaniment for “Void”—an MTV IGGY Video Of The Week–spares no expense in presenting the viewer with a truly stunning piece of cinematography, tailing a spectacular Golden Eagle.
