Berlin's Fenster likes to call its music "deconstructed pop," which is a pretty typical European way of describing electro-pop music. Still, we'll let them have it.
The songs on Fenster's latest full-length, The Pink Caves,
are like feathers strung into a dreamcatcher: wistful, mysterious and a little creepy if you really think about them. The band takes inspiration from a lot of space-themed science fiction and cultish mysticism, and its music lets that weird energy out by employing various non-instruments (shovels, according to Fenster's website, among other innocuous objects). It sounds a bit like how being dropped into a Dali painting would feel, which all makes for a very interesting live show.
