Last summer we introduced you to the newcomer Stereokeys, which inspired us at the Youth Brigade Festival. In the meantime, the ambitious Sauerlanders have worked diligently in the studio and found a homeland label Homebound Records, over which they have now released the second EP with the simple title “II”.
The four songs of the EP can be quickly recognized that the band has further refined their style, which oscillates somewhere between indie pop and alternative rock. The sophisticated songwriting combines sometimes melodic, sometimes scruffy guitars with cool basslines and driving drums. The sound is rounded off with catchy lyrics and the distinctive vocals of singer Benni as well as singing uuuuh and ooooh choirs. For example, at the beginning of the opener “Light”, which later thrashes forward in the refrain. “Timeframe” then shines through his engaging dancing. With “Young Hearts” follows the alternative anthem, which contributes with atmospheric guitars the certain amount of melancholy to the overall picture of the EP. “AAA” finally forms the casual and informal finale, releasing the listeners into an “alcohol and atmosphere” full-blown contentment.
The Stereokeys make a multifaceted picture with their second work – and not just on the detail-loving Cover of the EP! Not only that, but fans of the Kings of Leon and the Beatsteaks are likely to like it. If you want to convince yourself of your live qualities, you already have a few opportunities in the summer (see below). Many more will hopefully follow. We definitely keep an eye on the Sauerlanders!
The EP “II” streams on all common channels like Spotify, iTunes and Youtube.
