NAKED in ENGLISH CLASS
are Olifr M. Guz and Taranja Wu. Together they have been producing and performing their music since 2015. As the music they both love and want to hear does not exist, they are forced to compose it themselves.
The sound is a vigorously pumping electro-blues, peppered with elements of pulsating strobo-punk. Their songs deal with madness, bees, rockets, cars and day-to-day fallacies. Relentless hammering, sawing guitars, steaming machine sounds, mixed with the dreams of the subway. Embedded within are two voices, sounding like ABBA in Hell, accompanied by Bo Diddley on a rusty synthesizer.
On «LIVE IN WEIRDSVILLE» NAKED in ENGLISH CLASS present themselves live on stage. The album contains new songs in raw versions and earlier songs in a fresh outfit.
Why NiEC excite their audience is easily to be heard: A look into the cold and slick world of tomorrow; a leap back into the troubling abysses of yesterday; a showdown with the obscure and blurred present where everything melts together.
