Brand new and sealed.
Equally at home on and off the dancefloor, its wave-kissed dreariness dripping with cold sensuality is both vibrant and brooding. Showcasing her unique sound in the saturated world of electronica, Touch successfully draws from electropop and disco influences, combining 80s vintage synths with industrial soundscapes, delivered with a visceral post-punk snarl.
Introduced to 80s pop and new wave via her fathers extensive collection of Human League, Karat and Duran Duran, she honed her trademark sound with the likes of The KLF, Karen O and PJ Harvey motivating her early productions. The results led to releases on Catz N Dogz Pets Recordings and Lunatic Records, as well as making regular ap- pearances on Riotvan, the Leipzig-based record label run by Peter Invasion and co-owned by Panthera Krause. Behind the Wall opens with the dark and powerful Imaginary Boys, a soundtrack to Touchs long journey through the city to the studio each day. It is followed by Attic, which she describes as the driving point of the whole album. Its an invitation to dance with me, a lullaby, a consolation, she says. Like a mantra. And that is exactly what this record feels like.
