In 2003 Visti & Meyland teamed up through friends and immediately found out that they shared a mutual passion for creating music. Their love of music has spawned several 12s on labels such as Warner, Music for Dreams and Eskimo. This is all very spiffing, however it is their slightly quirky, spanner-in-the-works take on things that really attracted US to the Danish paring. Their broad musical heads & certain sense of humour in their music dovetails ever so nicely with our own wacky take on the world here at Bearfunk towers. Their self titled debut album is a result of their 7 year journey together. We love it. You've probably already heard one of it's lead tracks "Yes Maam / All Nite Long". It slyly samples some US archive negro spiritual recordings and spins them a minimalist electro disco groove. Recent single "Stars" also takes a staring role with it's epic extended "prog-disco" build up and rousing Russian-cold-war-navy-style chorus. Future single "Leave Your Worries" heaps on doses of positivity with dancefloor groove and zany lyrical musings. The floor friendly "Diggy Dang" also adds to the up-tempo groover quotient to the LP. of course there is the obligatory cover version on the album, Grace Jones "Nightclubbing" is the subject here, a fine quirky disco re-take. Both being Gemini's, the vibe in the studio can become fairly tense, and sometimes result in hour-long discussions on music, music history, musical taste and life in general. This feeds down to the varied set of tunes. Tracks such as "Something in the Way", "Slowly" and "I'm Scared" explore the more introspective, downtempo and thoughtful side to the pairing. Epics such as "The Chair" detail the breadth of influences and the vast musical silos the pair can draw from. All in all 10 thoroughly well constructed songs.
