Affentanz’s newest single is a dazzling display of 80s synth-pop melancholy fused with modern production and themes, all delivered with maturity and nuance that’s fitting of the German electronica veterans.

Based in Cologne, Germany, Affentanz is a four-part band that dabbles with downtempo electronic music, making their sound heavy, sludgy, and dark, and their choice of stabbing synths and hard-hitting drums on their latest release ‘Cage’ does well to serve The darkness of the themes of the song. 

Sung about the perceived falseness of everything around us, from the artist’s point of view. The song’s descending progression and poignant, simplistic melodies, do well to amplify this position of quiet desperation. The repeating chord cycle makes the music hypnotic, and the repeating, catchy hook is sublime, melodically, and lyrically. 

‘Cage’ is a tight package of music and words. Spun carefully and with attention and care from the charting Affentanz, they are presenting us with a dark nugget of looming synth pop.
