New record 'SUNSETS EP' out June 26, 2015!

sunsetsPepsine's new EP "SUNSETS EP" will be released in June 2015. It took a while... P for Pepsine is now back and even more of a Solo act. On his latest EP, "SUNSETS EP", despite his new design, Pepsine remains loyal to his self-proclaimed genre: Home-Fi (taken from Low-Fi). Repetitions are not his strength, but more the contiuation of his own productions. It’s true what’s being touted on the cover when the predicate solo artist says: he has everything done from the first song sketch to the artwork on his own. Because in between lies the actual craft that allows us to know that it sounds the way it sounds when individual pop music results: songwriting, arranging, playing all of the instruments (analog & digital), recording, mixing. In addition Pepsine designed the artwork of the new record once again himself. Although the five new songs on "SUNSETS EP" are to be classified under pop, they don’t stick to the familiar and common structures in the genre, but they more celebrate their unique atmosphere.

BIOGRAPHY
P FOR PEPSINE: SUNSETS EP (2015)

Es hat eine Weile gedauert. P for Pepsine ist zurück und wird noch mehr zum Solo-Orchestra. Pepsine bleibt auf seiner neusten EP „SUNSETS EP“ seinem selbsternannten Genre treu: Home-Fi. Wenn auch in einer neuen Auslegung. Wiederholungen gehören nicht zu seinen Stärken. Aber umso mehr die Durchgängigkeit seiner Eigenproduktionen. Hier stimmt was auf dem Deckel angepriesen wird, wenn Solokünstler draufsteht; hat er doch von der ersten Songskizze bis zum Artwork alles in Eigenregie durchgeführt. Denn dazwischen liegt das eigentliche Handwerk, welches überhaupt ermöglicht, dass etwas so klingt, wie es klingt, wenn individuelle Popmusik entsteht: das Songwriting, das Arrangieren, das Einspielen der Instrumente (Analog & Digital), die Aufnahmen, das Abmischen. Zudem hat Pepsine auch diesmal sein Artwork wieder gleich selber umgesetzt.

Pressestimmen wie „...neu und gut aus der Schweiz...was uns einen feinen Solokünstler mehr beschert...“ (SRF3, Radio), „...wieso der junge Mann noch nicht zu einem der ganz grossen Songwritern unseres Landes gehört, mag ein Rätsel sein… grossartiges aus der Leuchtenstadt...“ (Trespass, Onlineplattform), „...was für eine Intensität sich in Songs wie "Beyond the flow", "Frozen fragments" oder "Apathetic" breit macht!...Wunderbar, ganz wunderbar...“ (Kulturmagazin Luzern) oder „...der Luzerner ist nicht nur aufgrund seiner Stimme unverkennbar, sondern auch wegen seinem ausserordentlichen Talent...“ (Bewegungsmelder, Zeitschrift) machten im Jahr 2009 die Runde, nachdem Pepsine sein Debut „Plans to leave for good“ veröffentlicht hatte.

Und jetzt kommt die neue EP „SUNSETS EP“. „Ich möchte dem Zuhörer die Chance geben, sich auf weniger Songs auf einmal konzentrieren zu können, um den einzelnen Song in den Mittelpunkt zu stellen, da die verfügbare Zeit des modernen Menschen zu einem knappen Gut geworden ist. Daher die Idee mit der EP anstelle eines Longplayers, es ist eine Reaktion auf den Zeitgeist“. Die facettenreichen Songs auf „SUNSETS EP“ brauchen in der Tat seine Zeit, um sie zu aufzunehmen. Obschon die 5 neuen Songs auf „SUNSETS EP“ unter Pop einzuordnen sind, pfeifen sie meist auf die gewohnten und gängigen Strukturen im Genre, umso mehr aber zelebrieren sie die individuelle Stimmung in sich. Im Gegensatz zum Debutalbum im 2009 halten sich analoge Instrumente im Hintergrund und geben elektronischen Klängen den Vorrang. Pepsine: „Das war Konzept, es ist sozusagen die Umkehrreaktion zu „Plans to leave for good“. Ich bin ganz bewusst mit diesem Ansatz an die Songs rangegangen“. Was geblieben ist, ist das Pepsine-typische Songwriting und der unverkennbare Gesang, wenn auch teilweise auf eine andere Art und Weise interpretiert.

„Die Wiedererkennbarkeit spiegelt sich in der Individualität“ ab, so Pepsine. Und das wird auch auf „SUNSETS EP“ wieder gross geschrieben. Bewusst drückt er so seinen fetten „P for Pepsine“ Stempel drauf. Melancholische Stimmungen, wunderschöne, aber dennoch nicht kitschige Melodien, persönliche Texte und ein eigenes Klangbild prägen die 5 neuen Songs auf „SUNSETS EP“. Es knistert wieder, da es darf und muss. Und das ist gut so.

P for Pepsine is now back and even more of a Solo act. On his latest EP, "SUNSETS EP", despite his new design, Pepsine remains loyal to his self-proclaimed genre: Home-Fi (taken from Low-Fi). Repetitions are not his strength, but more the contiuation of his own productions. He has done everything from the first song sketch to the artwork on his own. Because in between lies the actual craft that allows us to know that it sounds the way it sounds when individual pop music results: songwriting, arranging, playing all of the instruments (analog & digital), recording and mixing. In addition, once again Pepsine designed the artwork of the new record himself.

  Press reviews such as "...New and well from Switzerland...brings us another fine solo artist..." (SRF3, radio station), "...Why this young man doesn’t belong to the very great songwriters of our country may be a mystery...magnificent from the city of lights ..." (Trespass, online-music platform), "...what an intensity in songs like "Beyond the flow", "Frozen fragments" or "Apathetic" spreads!...wonderful, quite wonderful..." (Kulturmagazin Luzern) or "...the Lucerner is recognizable, not only because of his voice, but also because of his extraordinary talent..." (Bewegungsmelder, trend magazine, Zürich) in 2009 made ​​the rounds after Pepsine released his debut album, “Plans to Leave For Good".

  And now comes the new EP "SUNSETS EP". "I want to give the audience the opportunity to concentrate on fewer songs at once, to bring each song to the center, as the available time of the average person has become a scarce commodity. Therefore, the idea with the EP instead of a long play is a reaction to the zeitgeist." The multi-faceted songs on "SUNSETS EP" need in fact some time to pick up on them. Although the five new songs on "SUNSETS EP" are to be classified under pop, they don’t stick to the familiar and common structures in the genre, but they more celebrate their unique atmosphere. In contrast to the debut album "Plans to Leave for Good", analog instruments keep in the background and give priority to electronic sounds. Pepsine: "That was the concept, it's sort of an opposite reaction to the songs on the debut. I was quite aware of this when I started writing.” What remains is the Pepsine-typical songwriting and distinctive vocals, even when sometimes interpreted in a different way.

  "The recognition is reflected in the individuality”, Pepsine says. And that is also applied to "SUNSETS EP" again. Consciously, he stamps a fat "P for Pepsine" on it. Melancholy moods, beautiful, but not cheesy melodies, personal lyrics and a private sound characterize the 5 new songs on "SUNSETS EP". It crackles again as it should and must. And that's a good thing. It’s just Home-Fi.
