With their debut album “News From The Colonies“ released in
2012, PLEXIPHONES, with tongue-in-cheek, demonstrated their
musical style, which also applies to the second full length release
“Electric”. “Our musical roots are clearly British”, says singer
Wolfgang Kemmerling. Classic 80s pop music from bands like
Simple Minds, U2, Killing Joke, The Alarm or Big Country heavily
influenced the band’s musicians, although the band does not intent
to copy any of these styles.

The songs of the new album possess their own individuality which
represents all the different musical roots from each of the six band
members. Therefore, it is hard to exactly describe the style of the
album. The classification “Electro Rock” maybe combines the
essential elements which include groovy rock rhythms as well as
electronic elements to create a combination of catchy melodies and
pumping beats which work on CD as well as on stage. Especially
their powerful, energetic and emotional live performances elates all
generations of people they play for, which the band regularly
demonstrates in front of very different audiences, e. g. during a
support show for ZZ Top in 2015.

The album opener and first single “40 Days” is a representative
example of the band’s potential with an almost revolutionary hymn
(“I was a fighter, a soldier of love”) and a catchy refrain (“Let’s stop
hiding”). However, the album is in fact very rich and powerful, each
song could be a candidate for a single release in one way or
another or even for different bands, which shows PLEXIPHONE’s
capability to just write good and maybe timeless songs.

The album was produced by Tom E. Morrison who has worked with
artists like Bonnie Tyler, Andrew Roachford, Underworld or Bliss,
and Ex-Wallenstein, Twelve Drummers Drumming and Dead
Guitars bassist Kurt Schmidt who already worked with Singer
Wolfgang Kemmerling on his releases from the band “Fail Safe” for
Phonogram Records. Tom and Kurt worked on each song to
develop their individual radio and single potential and to create an
enjoyable album-flow for listeners with a taste for handmade music
and great melodies. The album mastering was done by Thomas
Kessler (Dissidenten) and Andy Jackson (Pink Floyd, David
