ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After HONEY TOWER's eclectic debut "Crystal Rain" and "Silver", her Warhol-inspired follow-up EP, "promising German Electro artist" (FAULT MAGAZINE) drops her third release.

"Dandy" is an 8-track concept album referencing literary, philosophical and historic manifestations of distinct dandyism.

From Huysman's notorious novel À Rebours ("Gegen den Strich"), to tragic dandy Franz Reichelt, who jumped to his death in his own design ("Eiffel 1912"), to Witgenstein's philosophical reflections on ethics and aesthetics ("(A)e(s)th(et)ics") to the Decadent movement of the late 19th century ("Fin de Siècle)", the artist draws inspirations from multiple sources and creates an electronic anthology based on a concept that has always preoccupied artists, writers and philosophers from Wilde, to Baudelaire, to Camus and countless more.

According to Albert Camus, "The dandy is, by occupation, always in opposition" - a mindset which is reflected in HONEY TOWER's consistent denial of genre limitations. Once again, she is playing with diverse musical styles and juxtapositions and thereby systematically enhances her "dark, but definitely very sexy" (DEATHEELECTRO) sound aesthetics between contemporary club music and "underground art installation" (MRU MAGAZINE), creating a sublime and intriguing universe that is decadent indeed.

"Dandy" comes as a black 12'' vinyl in printed cardboard sleeve, printed labels + white inner paper sleeve. Limited edition.
