Avantgarde Musician K4LT casts a long, disquieting shadow on new single “LCPD” – Onstage Magazine.com

Berlin-based Avantgarde Musician and Producer K4LT casts a long, disquieting shadow on his new single “LCPD”, released May 2nd on streaming platforms. This visionary multi-instrumentalist doesn’t merely embrace darkness in his work. He makes himself completely at home expressing bleak truths and cold emotion, masterfully combining Alternative, Indie, Avantgarde, Post-Punk, Doom and Dark Wave sounds to form a formidable original sound.

“LCPD” is K4LT´s first single in two years and addresses one of the most painful breakup types: An amicable one. Since the release of the first EP “Endgame”, the loss of loved ones and various other personal setbacks lead to probably the most difficult time in K4LT´s life. As a reaction, his sound has been refined into a less rock-orientated, slightly calmer and more structured approach, while still keeping the ominous overall aesthetic. Synths, including a modded Omnichord, play am even bigger part in K4LT’s sound now. The guitar is just a layer for that desperate feel instead of playing riffs or lead.

Fans of artists like Radiohead, Burial, Low, Mogwai and Richard Dawson will appreciate K4LT‘s latest single. In contradiction to society’s current universal accessibility of perfection, K4LT´s music leaves room for imperfections and forms those into a display of contemporary, mobile-first insecurity and despair. 

Stream “LCPD” on Spotify.

Artist Biography:

K4LT from Berlin performs multi-layered, Radiohead loopy coldness. Founded in 2017, the solo project revolves around the universal feeling of being lost. The dark and bassy character of many  songs is lend from Berlin’s techno scene, while the desperate guitar aesthetic is based on Doom, but transformed into merely an ambient layer, lacking the often typical aggression. In contradiction to nowadays universal accessibility of perfection, K4LT´s music leaves room for imperfections and forms those into a display of contemporary, mobile-first insecurity and despair.

Press Quotes: 

“Honestly, it’s incredibly artistic with layers upon layers of varied elements of ambient electronica and post-punk…  Sure, it’s different than what most people would define as an “instrument”; however, it’s artistry. It’s phenomenal. So incredibly unique and nothing like I’ve heard before… When listening to these tracks, it’s incredible how intricate and detailed they are. The artistry and innovation behind each of the songs inspire me.” 

Dark and broody is certainly a style to fit the times we’re in, and “Alt-desktop” doom artist K4LT (formed from the German word “Kalt”) has delivered a discombobulated, weird, and mesmerizing piece with his new EP, Endgame. The Berlin artist fuses a lot of heavy, spooky styles into one eccentric mish mash—doom metal, psych-rock, post-punk, and synths all swirl energetically in the cauldron.

“Dark and ominous, mysterious and catchy; the quintessential Monday track–that’s what we get with Berlin-based K4LT’s ‘Boarding Pass. It’s got post-punk vibes, with a hip-hop drum backing track, and gorgeous falsetto vocals at some points. Yes, really, all that is happening. And its damn good. Four stars for Desktop Doom…Can we just pause to appreciate the layers? „http://thatmusicmag.com/german-desktop-doom-artist-k4lt-releases-moody-ep-endgame-out-now/
