APPARAAT is a fierce group, with piercing guitars, atmospheric synths and a throbbing bass. And with the cool yet pensive emotion of Willems’ voice and lyrics. During performances, "loud" is their motto, but their demo also shows a more subtle side.
"Wrong Tattoo" is their most spiteful track. It barks and bites. How would you feel if you got a swastika tattoo by mistake? Dry reverberating beats and whooshing keyboards accompany Willems' laconically desperate reflections on love in "I Must Have Loved You For A Minute Or two." "Metal Rain" sounds menacing and minimalist as if Fad Gadget got up on the wrong side of the bed.
» Kezdown (Dark synthpop)
If we had to briefly summarize Kezdown in only one word, inertia would be, by far,the perfect term. An inertia feeded, amplified, motivated, magnified… By some various events and elements apparently insignificants, but, ultimately, implacables in the so slow gestation of this musical project.
