A Brazilian, a German-Dutch and a German-Bulgarian meet in a rehearsal room in February 2020... What starts as a politically incorrect joke ends up as the band FRAPPIER.
A German-speaking band that is a mixture of identity satire carried by music of the 80s retro, synthesizer and modern beats. Yes, the worst possible time to do anything with culture. But despite the pandemic, the brave trio, full of courage and drive, is trying to infect listeners with their crazy ideas in the contagion-free worldwide web.
With their debut single "Mach mich an!" they address decadence and consumerism, and a generation that knows about and reflects the machinery of the advertising industry, but likes to ingest what it is given. Consumption comes before actual need.
A song about consumerism and decadence - like "Mach Mich An!" - is cooked with a vulgar dubstep or trap bass and served with blasé lyrics.
German-language reflective texts about our digitalisation and consumer culture. You get sucked into an absurdly painful life reality of decadence and foreign domination. The music is a mixture of poetry slam-like lyrics and what is currently popular on the radio. Funky, electronic and above all satirical, Frappier dresses up with the platitudes of the pop and advertising industry. Each song is like a parodic musical play.
