Qoniak: New album coming; first taste "Coac" out today
ONIAK’s NEW FULL LENGTH ALBUM ‘MUTATIO‘ OUT OCTOBER 16th 2020 ON HUMMUS RECORDS - NOW THE TWO SWISS GUYS PRESENT THE VIDEO OF THE SINGLE "COAC
QONIAK can now let rip. And for Vincent Membrez (synth) and Lionel Friedli (drums), “letting rip” means acting like slightly nutty Siamese scientists in a secret lab, randomly turning knobs on a Pro-One 80’s keyboard to see what happens; taking contemporary jazz and cutting it to pieces with a techno-indus blade, math rock scalpel, overlapping tempos and rhythmical breaks gleaned from Meshuggah. With one foot in Area 51, the other in the underground passageways of Stranger Things, “we experiment flat out”, proclaim QONIAK! With the video for "Coac" you can get a first taste of the what those guys are actually doing!
Coac could be the soundtrack of an old arcade video game. It feels like playing a wild gameof Space Invaders and dancing at the same time. Its driving rocky/disco beat and infectiousmelody makes you nod your head with a smile on your face.
