Longtime friends, work colleagues and old bandmates, the two CERN scientists S. Leontsinis and P. Vichoudis — originally from Greece, based in Switzerland — formed Haneke Twins and recorded their first EP in 2018. Haunting baritone vocals blended with eerie though catchy guitar licks resulted in a “Bauhaus/Joy Division meet Interpol” debut EP. Their new album “Astronaut”, keeps the Post-Punk Revival feel but with a more “in-your- face” production. Sharp, edgy guitar lines, soothing yet haunting vocals and powerful, driving rhythmic architectures blend effortlessly to build little new wave gems. Lyrically, the band deals with subjects such as psychological quests, concerns about modern life as well as other social and political issues. “River” is about a person on the verge of suicide while “Location Unassigned” deals with concerns about modern life, freedom and privacy.
All music & lyrics for the 7 tracks of the album were written by Leontsinis & Vichoudis. The album was recorded at Dudu Loft studio, Athens, Greece in autumn 2019 and it was mixed, mastered and produced by Costas Verigas (from Greek post- rock band Afformance). The recordings also feature three talented musicians (and scientists!) that joined the band in 2019 for live performances (I. Koukovinis, A. Kyritsis & M. Schenk).
