The three effortless and timeless analogue jams that are part of The Brutal Truth were created spontaneously when Ceili was staying over in One Track Brain’s studio. They would like to thank humanity for inventing these beautiful machines:
MFB tanzbär, Maschine, Korg MS20 (bass), Synthi EMS (leads), Human Voice, Analogue Systems RS-120, Macbook Pro with Logic X.
“The Brutal Truth”: The truth can hurt, but one cannot live with a lie. This idea is sublimely embodied by the lead of this beast of a track. Hailing back glorious elektro but without nostalgia, this track can make or break a set. Play it at the right moment. Think about it. It’s not always the right moment to tell the truth.
“Eternal Youth”: Youthfulness was once seen as foolishness. Today’s culture is obsessed by it. As an artist we all look for it. Vitality that is fearless. Beauty that is effortless. The endlessly looping arpeggiator represents our longing for eternal youth. The bassline brings us back to reality and tells us that the way is always forward.
“Wild Card”: Sometimes we absolutely love this track and sometimes we think its ridiculous. But maybe the place where the ridiculous meets the sublime is where you want to be.
