With Being Water Lali Puna refine their distinctive take on pop and electronics, pushing the boundaries towards classical songwriting. The four songs – equally affecting and catchy as self-reflected and aloof – are complemented by the airy tripiness of a remix by Dave DK (Kompakt, Pampa Records).
Although singer Valerie Trebeljahr wrote Being Water mostly by herself, being backed by bandmates Christian Heiß and Christoph Brandner, she rejects the idea of authorship: “Nothing comes out of myself. I’m a sampler: I write music because I listen to music. And I write lyrics because I read”.
Equipped with a childlike voice, Surma masters every instrument that is around her. The result is a really unique, warm and intimate sound. Ethereal melodies created by a one-woman-band that will take you to another place.
