Anatopia (from Amsterdam) Japan tour 2012

Dutch electro-punks Anatopia are a duo comprised of Klaus Plötzlich and Henrietta Morgenstern. They take the slick, electronic techno-fetishism of Kraftwerk, the spiky, irony-laced geek-punk of Devo and the grimy garage rock of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, turning it to the purpose of creating simple, catchy, minimalist pop art nuggets.

巧妙でかつ、エレクトロニック&テクノ-フェティシズムのKraftwerkのような、するどく尖り、アイロニーで飾られた、ギーク-パンクのDevoのような、汚れたガレージロックのThe Yeah Yeah Yeahsのような要素を兼ね合わせている。Anatopiaはこれらの要素を捏ね合わせ、最終的にシンプルでキャッチー、そしてミニマリストなポップアートナゲッツを創り上げていく。

While their lyrics deal with the duo's obsession with and fear of technology, they contrast this with a live setup that brings a sense of theatre to the stage but also focusses on sounds they can generate themselves in the moment. Henrietta plays synth and attacks a crash cymbal in her spare moments, while Klaus operates a kick drum and hi-hat with his feet at the same time as playing guitar with his hands.
