Cologne, Germany’s electronic duo COMA today announced their signing with City Slang, sharing “Snurrebassen,” the first single for their new label home. The hypnotic track—which premiered earlier today at CLASH Magazine—can now be heard HERE alongside equally mesmerizing visuals by Martin Taylor. “Snurrebassen,” which lures the listener in with a spellbinding build-up and spiraling shuffle beat, hints to a forthcoming new album later this year from the duo.
Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad (aka COMA) established themselves in the German electronic underground with their previous releases on Cologne trailblazer label Kompakt. Early press fans include Pitchfork, SPIN, and The Guardian who praised COMA for the “playfulness, prettiness, and kind of intense pleasure that results from perfectly interwoven melodies.” They now join Caribou, Gold Panda, Junior Boys, and Roosevelt at City Slang as they embark on a new musical chapter, seeking the freedom to express a more personal and intimate version of electronic pop. COMA have also announced a string of UK and EU tour dates in fall 2019, including a stop at Reeperbahn Festival on September 20th.
