With Capri Song MESSINA announce their debut album “Sponsored Post”. It will be released in autumn 2021. The production was lavish, if not to say decadent: A mid five-digit amount for a year in the studio? Eh Messina rented a room from Phil Harrison in the Winterthur Bau-2-Studios and furbished the eleven songs until they shone. Comparisons with Bilderbuch are not only useful on a textual level, the dry chopped off rhythms, the southern percussion and the shrill synths are reminiscent of the models from Vienna. The wind is also blowing from France - the tragic story of the band Her has shaped Messina for years - and from London, where they get inspiration for edgy sounds à la Foals. “Sponsored Post” does not only ask its questions in the form of music. For each song, Messina founded fictional brands that are at the center of the visual concept. On top of that there is an interactive browser game. Because: why not?
“The past few months have forced us to behave correctly in many areas,” say Messina. "And yet nothing will change." A step into a better world, but only temporarily, please. One and a half hours of startling Netflix documentary, two days to think about it. But really changing something is too exhausting. Better to just sleep.
