“Mermaid & Seafruit are a live-act beyond and inbetween the binaries of genre, like a very concerning threeway of glam-metal, hyperpop and hardcore gave birth to dark and electronic twins. The Vienna-based duo layers highpitched live-vocals over five-octave-arpeggios and 180-BPM-gabber-kicks, only to merge into a two-minute interlude, a transcendental ballad and back to a break-infused halftime stomper. It’s a rave opera of grand feelings and highspeed ecstasy and although this has been an adjective-driven insanity of a description we fucking promise you these two alone are worth coming to this evening. Just listen to a single track and you’ll know we’re right.”
