Odd metrics and fragile vocals drive a beautiful lyric in this soulful song.
Reinhardt’s Wolfsheim lit up the German charts with releases such as ‘Spectators’ (1999), which reached # 2, and ‘Casting Shadows’ (2003), which # 1 and saw them winning the ‘Best Alternative Domestic Band’ gong at the prestigious Echo Music Prize national awards ceremony in 2004.
Unfortunately, good things don’t last forever, and vocalist Peter Heppner focusing on solo works and other collaborations, lead to the disbanding of the group. “The end of Wolfsheim motivated me to reinvent myself. A process that was urgently needed. With Renard, I'm more with myself," states Reinhardt.
Renard's first album, ‘Waking Up In A Different World’, showcases Reinhardt’s signature intimate songwriting in symbiosis with an array of talented singers sharing vocal duties. The first single, ‘Travel In Time’, featured the special timbre of Pascal Finkenauer (JAW) can be heard on the first single. Marian Gold, from legendary German band Alphaville contributed to the second single, ‘Hotel’, but my personal favorite was, since the release, ‘Heresy’, where Sarah Blackwood’s (Client, Dubstar) fragile vocal and odd metrics delivers a soulful song. I hope the simple, but elegant, lyric video helps to propel the song into its deserved place in the charts.
