- Time Traveller My Friend The Chimpanzee 4:29
Two Viennese Chimpanzees found themselves a cave in the 16th district, in Thaliastraße to be more precise. To produce alternative music. With lots and lots and lots of analogue synths.
Founded in 2018, My Friend The Chimpanzee is the ongoing collaboration between producers Josef Umschaid (drums and fx) and Lukas Wieser (strings and synths) from Vienna/Austria.
In their music, the duo combines elements of different genres, reflecting their respective musical influences (Absolute Beginner, Alphaville, Alt-J, Beastie Boys, Black Knights, John Frusciante, Moby, Modest Mouse, Nada Surf, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Smiths, Tocotronic, Tycho, Vasco Rossi, Wyclef Jean, etc.). Whilst the guitar and bass are very alt-rock, they are supplemented by indie pop synths and vocals, with hip hop and trap beats providing the foundation.
All tracks have been recorded in Josef Umschaid’s studio. ‘Time Traveller’ is the first single to be taken from their upcoming album.
