STURMWIND- the video: best to go with a BLAST…. and return with a BANG…
Achtung! Beequeen goes pop. But Beequeen being Beequeen, it is not pop as we know it. Sturmwind, as the title suggest, is sung in German and probably the first single in history to paraphrase German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters in the chorus of “Du, deiner, dich, dir” from his famous poem An Anna Blume. Couple this with an existentialist lyric about overwhelming all-consuming love at the end of the world and an uplifting melody and rhythm and you end up with the typical surreal-twist that was also present on Beequeen’s latest album “Around Midnight”. And with this single the Beequeen bids us, after more than 30 years, goodbye.
Sturmwind was produced and mixed by Peter van Vliet (The Use Of Ashes) and was released on March 19 2016 as a limited edition 7inch (300 copies) in a numbered sleeve designed by Carl Glover.
