In August 2006, Technoir
broke the long silence with their EP Manifesto
which instantly hit the German Alternative Charts and raised the expectations for the long awaited second full length album Deliberately Fragile
, for which the German duo worked together with the well-reputable producer Olaf WollschlÃ¤ger (In Strict Confidence, Melotron
, etc.). This new album comes out a bit more than five years after the release of Technoir's debut CD Groundlevel
was an immediate club hit. During the hiatus, each of the members took time to collaborate with others... Julia Beyer contributed her guest vocals to Rotersand, Melotron and In Strict Confidence
, whereas Steffen continued his journey as keyboarder for Plastic Noise Experience
and as a remixer for several electro acts.
With a more powerful and intense sound, Technoir shows once more their talent for catchy melodies, deep atmospheres, emotional ballads and also for danceable club-tracks, combined with very personal lyrics. Once again, Technoir effortlessly shows us that they are one of the leading female fronted Electro-Pop bands of today. Vulnerable, but strong - this is the message that Technoir explores both with the music and the lyrics of this aptly entitled album.
The deluxe limited boxset edition of the album contains a 13-track bonus disc with amongst others, remixes by: Leaether Strip, Beborn Beton, Iris, P.N.E., Negative Format, Distorted Reality, and more!
