SOLITAER

by The Hirsch Effekt

David Fischer After releasing their fantastic GREGÆR EP a mere year ago, The Hirsch Effekt are ready to strike again. Solitaer should be an especially interesting release, since every band member solitary wrote a song, While I obivously love the mutual accomplishments of the band, I am very keen to hear the results. Nares is already an extraordinarily heavy performance from Nils. Plus, the recorded band version of Gregær is something I have been waiting for eagerly. Full review inbound in August!

NARES 05:35
Ich habe eine Maske auf. Ich trage diese über meinem Mund. Darüber, sieh nur, so schön! Sie kräuselt, wenn ich schnauf. Sie nur, so schön! Und zwei Löcher hat sie auch. Und manchmal kommt da Ausfluss raus. Weil sie frei ist, steck ich sie in einen Strauß heller Rosen. Und es duftet nach Freiheitskampf. Ach, wie ist es schön, dass wir zusammen sind. Was geht dich das an? Das sind meine Wände! Und es duftet nach Freiheitskampf. Ach, wie ist es schön, dass wir zusammen sind. Was geht dich das denn an? Wo bleibt die Verhältnismäßigkeit, wenn sie uns beim Einkauf zwingen zu 'nem Korb? Nem' Korb! Wo bleibt denn der Spaß, wo bleibt die Lust, wo bleib denn ich? Wo bleib ich? Darum bleib ich nicht allein. Seht ihr nicht? Es geht um mich. Sie woll'n mich ganz, mich ganz und gar und von innen. Versteht ihr nicht? Seht ihr nicht? Es geht um mich und es ist so schön, dass wir versammelt sind.

GREGÆR (SOLITAER VERSION)

about

The social distancing restrictions of the Corona era prompted The Hirsch Effekt to take a radical step: what if you not only recorded by yourself for the next release, but also wrote the songs completely alone? One song per band member. And so came about the concept of SOLITAER, which means "living individually" and thus represents the antonym to gregarious - Social distancing as a songwriting concept. The opinion of the other band members was welcome, but required no necessity and didn’t need to influence the work of the respective musicians. In the end three songs were created - all of which showcase typical characteristics, that are part of the The Hirsch Effekt recipe, but do not sound like typical The Hirsch Effekt songs. It not only sounds like an extremely exciting experiment, but also frankly speaking: exceedingly extreme. The SOLITAER EP is rounded off by a band version of the song "Gregaer", which was originally created as an orchestral version.
