AKU – BITUME present themselves on their 7th full length album in a special acoustic version.
It started in 2015 with a special concert request and it evolved into a constant part of BITUME with an independent existence. Needless to say, the bustling musicians wanted to record and release this other side of BITUME. AKU, the album – recorded live. 13 songs, everyone in one room, maximum purity, minimum effects. Back to the roots! The selection of songs on AKU is taken from the comprehensive repertoire of the last years and is complemented by new songs. How AKU sounds?
As if a rockabilly bass player has met with a Jazz piano player and a punk drummer in order to extend the sound with the exceptional tone of a turkish Saz and a country guitar so as to complete this acoustic picture with melodic polyphonic vocals with German lyrics with love for details and far away from any platitude. The upright bass is steering the band danceable into the world of street music combined with heartache, temporary drama, recurrence to classic beat music, Polka and Gypsy Folk! Fire and Water!
A whole new perspective arose through new instruments and additional musicians – a fresh view on the own music! That is not much quieter and also not slower, but more tidied up and above all danceable and fresh – as if the songs have been waiting to be allowed to jump into their new clothes. BITUME reinvented and reinterpreted themselves!
