Genre: Morphogenetic Fantastical
Label: Dark Wings
Releases: Album “Morphone LoLa” / 14.08.2020
PerleZero is the new musical project of singer Merle Kypke/Lamirah. The collaboration with Alex Hunzinger, head of the band Aeternitas, resulted in Morphone LoLa, an album that can also be described as a morphogenetic Fantastical. The lyrics and songs reflect the diverse personalities of the lolan inhabitants and the people on the end time world. There are characters like the queen of LoLa, Fru Glitza, the fly-talking carpet Franz – who would prefer to be called Horst and likes to scratch in bum heaven sprinkled with alcohol -, the human abysses “Human Bomber” and of course Lamirah, healer from LoLa, who carries a shadow in the form of a twin soul and acts undercover, together with Schniepel the vomit-green Fleihorn, as Eleonore Muffpopp on the shattered earth.
PerleZero shows itself as a potpourri of diverse music styles. “As a classical singer, I wanted to use different parts of my voice to better represent the different characters. Alex and I didn’t take a drawer and fill it, we opened all the drawers and took out what served the song. The little guideline we had was the sound.”
Thus, in the album there are poppy elements, tango and swing rhythms, borrowings from rock, metal and electronic music.
For performances PerleZero is accompanied by the underdogs. These are Ole Marx (bass) and Alex Hunzinger (git/keys/vox).
