Out now! Yonderboi - Passive Control (Mole Listening Pearls)
And the above-mentioned method is not just a plain theoretic observation, as it was also used in practice. Actually, Yonder found the album’s female voice via myspace: the previously unreleased young German singer Charlotte Brandi. The goal was to create the sister-sequel of “Splendid Isolation”, so having female voice on the new album was of key importance. Like every Yonderboi record “Passive Control” is as well a diverse, story-like collection of songs, with a strong personal background. Even though the eleven songs are spread on a large-scale of styles, compared to the earlier works it is a bit less eclectic. Yonder produced and mixed the entire record alone in his Budapest home studio, the aim was to develop a more electronic and skeletonized version of his sound. The whole album has an elusive feel of utopia, which can be explained easily by Yonder’s love for science fiction ever since he was a kid. Jean Gireaud Moebius the legendary French comics artist, Russian sci-fi movie “Kin-Dza-Dza”, or Hungarian cult-film “Meteo” are just a few examples that inspired him during the making of “Passive Control”.
