Burkini Beach - Supersadness Intl. - 2017


The arrangements on "Supersadness Intl." are deliberately meager and instrumentation is kept sparse. „I wanted to avoid falling into the kitsch trap at all costs“, says Maier. „With singer-songwriter / acoustic-guitar-stuff it's always a thin line between cheesy and okay.“ In this case, a claustrophobic gem emerged, which is reminiscent of genre heroes like Elliott Smith, Mark Kozelek or Sufjan Stevens. "Supersadness Intl." is an atmospherically dense work of sometimes painful intensity, which Maier, however, can always break open with mischievous pleasure and with the use of textual and musical pointers.
