ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the TV world of the 60s and 70s things were simple; the good guys were good, the bad guys were bad, and the hero always got the girl. It’s “The man from UNCLE”, “Our man Flint” and “Get Smart”, it’s old-school espionage; Morse code, dead drops, numbers stations, covert ops and spies in trench coats, sharp suits and trilbies. It’s fun and it’s sexy. This is the world of Kaiser Architekt.
Described by industry professionals as "a great sound", "engaging and compelling" and "cool vibe and energy", the group is distinguished by their adherence to 1960's fashion and Cold War espionage technology. The music combines espionage-based lyrics and tight harmonies with minimalist piano patterns and a Pop-Rock backing. The group’s major influences range from classical minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and John Adams to bands like Yes, Asia, Men at Work, Snow Patrol, Crowded House and Squeeze.
"Spies Like Me" is a high quality release of in-house demo versions of the songs. written and recorded before the band was officially formed. They set out the imaginary espionage world of Kaiser Architekt. The album is styled as an operations report on 11 missions, all undertaken between 2011 and 2013, concerning the mysterious femme fatale, “Dr 11”.
