Today, the band has shared the video for “So Real.” Watch it here.
“So Real” is a guitar-based yet playful piece, featuring personal lyrics. The catchy chorus hook and contrasting the bluesy verse show that “even triplet parts can stay damn well in your head,” drummer David states.
“Also, this song changed a lot in the writing process, which makes it really special to us, since every little detail ended up in the song because we chose it out of all the options we had,” adds vocalist Hendrik.
JULI was created in collaboration with the producing team of Sawdust Recordings (Christoph Wieczorek and Julian Breucker) and is proof that blacktoothed have truly found their musical style.
“Recording JULI was a funny ‘3-way experience,’ involving three different recording sessions over the course of two years, changing band members, finally getting the flow in our songwriting process, and of course, lots of bad jokes and food with our producing team. To sum it up, we might finally know what we are doing musically,” the band says.
“With JULI, our main concern is to create awareness to the fact that we carry a lot of potential in ourselves to change the lives of our loved ones for the worse, but at the same time to recognize how we might be able to help those affected,” they finish. Ultimately, the record is characterized by a combo rock, filigree guitar work, and catchy pop-hooks — all topped off with an ’80s vibe.
