Alex Braun, frontman of the synth pop band !distain, walks on solo paths in 2018. However, rumours about a band break-up are completely out of place, as !distain's next album is already at the ready. In fact, this solo EP is a matter very close to Alex Braun's heart and does not get in !distain's way in so far as the four EP tracks are all cover versions marking various stages in the life of the artist.

Alex Braun, frontman of the synth pop band !distain, walks on solo paths in 2018. However, rumours about a band break-up are completely out of place, as !distain's next album is already at the ready. In fact, this solo EP is a matter very close to Alex Braun's heart and does not get in !distain's way in so far as the four EP tracks are all cover versions marking various stages in the life of the artist. Of course, there have always been interpretations of original songs making it very difficult to stand out from the rest. That requires something special or even extraordinary to be able to catch the fans' interest which is, however, already guaranteed as Alex Braun is among the best and most expressive vocalists in the genre. Besides, no one would have expected the songs chosen for the EP. The first is the title track, a NDW song (Neue Deutsche Welle = New German Wave) by the band Zara-Thustra from 1982 and is still regarded as an insider tip. German lyrics between kitsch and thoughtfulness as well as a minimal to hymnic synth orchestration draw the listeners in immediately and get them excited. It is quite noteworthy that this new interpretation got the official blessing of the original authors. At least as much unusual, but all the more known, is the theme song of the animated series "Pinocchio" originally sung by Mary Roos. Whoever dares to revel shamelessly in childhood memories together with Alex Braun. The vibrantly performed "Wonderful Life" (original track by Black) will also evoke plenty of moments from the past, and Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" will cause a lot of emotional explosions in the listeners' minds. All in all, this is an amazing package which is additionally refined by the wonderful female backing vocals contributed by Alex' daughter Alissa, as well as Ken Porter's perfekt mastering.
