You might easily think 18 SUMMERS are cheerful aging wavers with a very considerable wad-o-dough by a bank, who are weird enough to would like performed her passion once again on stages. But that´s far from the truth. The oeuvre of Felix Flaucher and Frank Schwer hasn´t lost any piece of his charismatic radiance and uniqueness over the last two decades, and yet although they accumulate this on THE MAGIC CIRCUS with a branding in a sophisticated utterance never previously obtained. The name is programmatic on whole album length. 18 SUMMERS presents a absorbing storytelling collection of enthusiasm, consciousness and questions about the master plan, accompanied by extraordinary music full of associations, contrasts, a sense of humor and ironic refractions.
18 SUMMERS presents themselves and their own sound with the potential of longings, slightly lighter tones in shades, and as a mixture of various origins and influences. Every song has own characteristics, sounding own paradigms and has a kind of an acoustic short movie full of hidden ambiguities. This new album embodies all facets and needs of imagination, and is their evidence to handle musical intensity, expressivity and catchiness to a common denominator, that make us believe we would have found the soundtrack of the lowbrow art movement. THE MAGIC CIRCUS is their admonition that no one is grown up to be no more happy like a child.
