PIHKA IS MY NAME veröffentlichen ihre neue Single „Heartbeat of Machines“ am 18.06. und sind am Tag zuvor live auf Facebook, Twitch und YouTube!

Nachdem PIHKA IS MY NAME im März ihr Debütalbum „Everything Is In Between“ veröffentlicht haben und unzählige Menschen mit ihrer einzigartigen Mischung aus Elektro und Indie begeistern konnten, kommt nun die nächste Singleauskopplung: „Heartbeat of Machines“ ist stilecht elektronisch, bunt und lebendig – ganz wie der Herzschlag einer Maschine eben.

Aber bevor am Freitag, 18.06.2021 das neue Video herauskommt, gibt es für alle, die nicht mehr abwarten möchten, den nächsten „Imaginary Live Stream“ schon einen Tag zuvor, am Donnerstag, 17.06.2021. Ob YouTube, Facebook oder Twitch, um 19 Uhr geht es los.

Und das sagen PIHKA IS MY NAME selbst über ihre neue Single:

‘Heartbeat of Machines’ is a piece of text I wrote around 2019, heavily inspired by Björk’s songwriting for the Lars von Trier film ‘Dancer in the Dark’. We wanted to use some of it on Pihka’s post-album single. The single started off as a remix of the album track ‘Between The Icicle and The Flame’. But with all-new vocals it’s more than a remix, it’s a new song.

It’s been a while since we’ve actually written a song with lyrics and a pop structure that is this traditional. It was quite difficult to get into that headspace.

But it was a good experiment. Also, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with my voice lately. I’ve been really insecure about my voice over the last few years. But this Spring, I’ve rediscovered my falsetto and I’m going to keep working on that.

We modified the lyrics a bit to fit the single ‘Heartbeat of Machines’. ‘…humans around me speak of random weird things’ reflects our frustration with all this absurd talk of economic growth. There is this belief that feeding the money machine will somehow lead to a solving all problems.

That machine is creating a lot of inequality and unfair distribution of for example food and medicine. It’s turning us against each other. And at the same time it’s making us forget the most pressing issue, the climate emergency.
