Freakwaves: For a very long time Freakwaves were regarded as the seaman's thread. While some of these so-called rouge waves made ships manoeuvrable or were hardly a danger for seamen, some among them were particularly feared - as those monster waves were able to swallow an entire ship.
VERSUS are back! After receiving rave reviews for the album 'Different Twilight Places' - They released a new record, FREAKWAVES.
FREAKWAVES is not only the world's first AhoiPop album, but is also a musical step forward. The new album FREAKWAVES comes along with a high level of homogeneity, an absolute memorability and excitement. VERSUS keeps again their standards with the new album: no song will be like the other. VERSUS is inextricably linked to AhoiPop. But what is AhoiPop?
AhoiPop stands for catchy melodies, epic hymns, addictive ballads and smart clubhits. AhoiPop stands for honest, poignant and profound lyrics. Simply spoken: AhoiPop is electronic pop music. On FREAKWAVES, VERSUS brings to mind the overwhelming term of 'pop', without denying their own roots from Electro, EBM and Darkwave. Together with the producer Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand, Homewreckers), VERSUS has created an album, by which they skilfully did the split between club and a cosy sweet home feeling. This record animates you to dance as well as to dream, a mix, which was not expected in its complexity after seven years break.
VERSUS outpaced themselves and have created thirteen wonderful waves full of depth, emotions and authenticity. Five German lyrics lay the message on the line. A special artwork, with loving details will for sure provide lots of discussion, as the features with Vasi Vallis (Frozen Plasma, NamNamBulu), Nils Upahl (Beyond Obsession) and Toby Hartwig (Syntec) will complete the record to a harmonious picture. VERSUS have defied the waves and came to share their stories by their new album. 13 waves put in a nutshell - this is FREAKWAVES.
