The electro group from Berlin, XTR Human, has launched a music video for their new single, “I want more.”
Johannes describes the song as a deep dive into an unyielding urge to consume, portraying it as a nihilistic anthem. He encourages listeners to remain engaged in this quest till its ultimate conclusion.
The video, directed by German filmmaker Matthias Landenberger, presents a story of a main character navigating a busy urban environment, highlighting the overwhelming presence of capitalism and the ubiquity of brand names in city living. The video uses a mix of rapid cuts and slow-shutter effects to underscore the frenetic pace of contemporary life and highlights the persuasive power of today’s neo-liberal culture.
This single offers a glimpse into XTR Human’s forthcoming album, which is set for release in 2024 through Wie Ein Gott Records.
The 4-track single is available on Bandcamp. Apart from the main version, it also includes three remixes.
In addition to the new single and video release, XTR Human will embark on a US tour in October and November 2023.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
