(Photo by Werner Nowak) The Devil & The Universe now look back on nine years of band history. In 2013, Ashley Dayour and David Pfister founded the band, which Stefan Elsbacher complemented to a trio. In the beginning the band focused on musical experimentation mixing soundtrack-like ambient sounds and driving beats. Their goat masks and humour are also immediately part of the package.
On their recent album “Goatopia” the band picked up the psychedelic feeling from the previous album “:Endgame 69:” and added new musical sounds. “Goatopia” was released on the German label Solar Lodge on January 28th and “Viva! Goatopia” is the 2nd output from the new The Devil & The Universe album “Goatopia”. Expect electronica mixed with a load of drums.
Here’s the video for “Viva! Goatopia”.
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.
