Unmap – Pirates (Official Video)

Unmap’s dark, intricate and quirky electro sound is a head turner. Pirates showcases front woman Mariechen Danz’s, deep, sultry female vocals dancing playfully with the band’s unique take on their modern electro sound. Whether Pirates hits you immediately or slowly grows inside you like an aching hunger, you’ll want to hear more. The video for Pirates also reveals the band’s artistic, avant-garde side, which is no surprise since Mariechen is heavily involved with the modern art scene in Berlin.

Comprised of Mariechen Danz (vocals), Alex Stolze (violin, guitar, electronics), Matthias Geserick (bass) and Thomas Fietz (e-drums), the band started life with Mariechen and Alex with the intention to make music to soundtrack her art performances. However, not before long, the pair’s soulful, lucid melodies took a life of their own and Unmap was born. Alex had previously worked with Berlin based bands Dictaphone and Bodi Bill and as the songs took shape, Matthias and Thomas were added to the mix.

Pirates is available via Sinnbus on iTunes. The album Pressures is also available on iTunes.
