Bilderbuch – Checkpoint (Nie Game Over)

Bilderbuch pulls the same trick as The 1975, releasing two albums shorly after one another. Last week, to the surprise of many, the Austrian indie band put out their fifth album mea culpa out of the blue, while announcing number six, Vernissage My Heart, has already been scheduled for 22 February 2019.

Mea culpa has a loungy sound, with easy-going beats and groovy guitar licks, occasionally enriched by strings, horns, organs and vocal samples. Album highlight Checkpoint however, is a melancholic shoegaze-kind of song. Its mantra-like chorus ‘Wir sind nie Game over’ makes it an earworm with huge hit potential.
