(By our Norwegian correspondent Jan Ronald Stange) The Norwegian experimental / new-wave / electronica duo El/NeUe have released a new single this week titled “Ich möchte Dinge bauen” (“I want to build things”).

It’s is a two-part song, where the start is an electronics-based instrumental with heavy drums and soft guitar chords, which slides into part two with rhythm box, industrial-like drum loops, lots of synths and EL/NeUe’s characteristic dark vocals. The lyrics are sung in German, Norwegian and English, and is about what you want to accomplish in life.

EL/NeUe: «Ich möchte Dinge bauen»

EL / NeUe’s previous single ‘Det er ikke hos meg det brenner‘ was well received, and “Attention Please” with Eddie Carter on Nova Radio North East thought the song was “absolutely spectacular, a brilliant bit of industrial. You need to hear this music – it’s sensational.”

Do also check out this about their long overdue debut album ‘Krank’.

“Ich möchte Dinge bauen” can be found on several streaming services.

Sometimes - when I'm not cooking, biking, listening to music or attending concerts, I write stuff for Side-Line.com. Mostly about Norwegian bands, but it's been some Swedish, English, American, Danish, German and others too... ;)
