New release: Eckhardt And The House - Humans (single)
Eckhardt is looking for E.T.
This thirteenth Eckhardt And The House single is again a fine example of the band's development towards a more uptempo and danceable indie sound. The band has been taking elements from pop to avant-garde to disco-funk and twisted it all up into a signature sound with wild experimentation and disregard for the norm.
Humans is based on a Peruvian folk song that has been added to the Voyager Golden Records. The Voyager Golden Records are two gramophone records that are on board of both Voyager spacecraft that were launched by NASA in 1977. The records contain sounds and images that have been selected to reflect the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are meant for any intelligent alien life form or for future people who may find them. The records are a kind of time capsule.
That is why Eckhardt And The House introduces itself to extraterrestrial life in the lyrics. "We are humans, living creatures on the planet earth, we are children of the sun waiting for you to come."
In the (hip-hop)beats, you could hear the Beasty Boys - Roots Down. The overall feeling of the single tends to that delicious Fools Gold song of the Stone Roses.
With so far twelve singles and an album under their belt the current play count on Spotify is 1.7 Million streams. The band scored iTunes chart positions in ten European countries plus Turkey, Brazil, South Africa and Japan, Spotify charts in The Netherlands, France, Italy and Turkey plus airplay in six European countries and the US. Press rolled in from worldwide.
Humans is released this week on BERT music (a division of TCBYML), and available for purchase/streaming on all known digital platforms
