Lord Kesseli & The Drums Switzerland
Lord Kesseli And The Drums create soundscapes with drums, guitar, electronic bass synthesizer and pre-produced samples, that explore stories of human manipulation through consumption, economics, politics and religion. Swiss mastermind Dominik Kesseli defines their music as 'slowed down electronic club music', or 'synthetic Science Fiction sound worlds with raging analogue textures'. There is certainly a sense of a mix of blissed out electronica and jarring, harsh guitar noise. This is reflected lyrically, with abstract, dystopian musings set in contrast to heartfelt declarations of love and hope.
