Messer are back. After the heavy, dark album “Jalousie” from 2016, the band, playing again as a quartet, created their fourth album, which takes a few new turns – but that’s just speculation as the album will be released at the beginning of next year. The songs are already there and a single with two new parts will be released soon by the Hamburg label Trocadero, shortly after the publication of the second novel by singer Hendrik Otremba.
“Anorak”, the A-side, shows a new aspect of the band, the dubby song puts more emphasis than ever on groove, even reveals their reggae affinity, while the B-side with “Die Furcht (Theme 1)” shows another, more closed facet and at the same time emphasizes the tendency to spherical, electronic music. Messer’s new sound seems a bit more inviting. Perhaps because the various nuances create a broader emotional spectrum than in the band’s beginning in 2010.
However, Messer has always made sure to underline the energetic starting point of their development, particularly at their live concerts.
