With "The Gold Route" UNMAP release the first single of their debut album "Pressures" (release 02.12.2013). On this record the Irish-German band around artist Mariechen Danz and Alexander Stolze (Bodi Bill, Dictaphone) creates their own approach to current pop music of impelling electro-soul, modern R&B, triphop and cautiously used electronica. They combine this with thoughts about social structures and hierarchy, the borders of language, subjectivity and objectivity.
This way "The Gold Route" - as a core part of the album - became a breathless monologue about the consequences of individual decisions on the way to supposed fortune. About work, failure and understanding, exploitation and being instrumentalized. Gold is fortune, lead is work and copper stain, what remains. Embedded in dark vibrant chamber-pop of peculiar dazing intimacy.
UNMAP will play release shows in the context of the 10 years Sinnbus tour in Hamburg, Jena, Leipzig and Berlin and on the 6th of December in Amsterdam.
