Driven by a fascination for unconscious opposites and resistances, British electro-Artpop duo Viktoria Winter and Mario Wienerroither pack the clash of different worlds, perspectives and emotions into their trademark, distinctive sound on their energetic latest single release, Noday. On this track, Wienerroither blends stylistic ingredients from various genres, cinematic soundscapes, synthesizer, electro, drum and percussion sounds with Winter’s unmistakable voice.
A whispery, jaunty ASMR sashay into the Eternal Now of the Mundane, the band reflects upon the creation of Noday: “We could say a lot of things about the song, for example that we have musically packed some of our favorite bands and artists into it, or that we sometimes like to long for little dramas because they make life exciting and worth living. It’s also about perfectionism and the pressure we put on ourselves. In the end, though, we just tell ourselves: no day has to be “anything.”
Formed in 2016, DRAMAS presented an emotional debut with 2018’s Nothing Is Permanent, landing indie airplay hits across Europe. On a side note, Mario Wienerroither may not yet be a household name, but he does inspire millions of people worldwide with his delightful Musicless Music videos (earning him a BBC award).
DRAMAS has also played at numerous festivals, and supported British shooting star Cosmo Sheldrake on tour.
