German Error Message – “Murmuring”

The last release from German Error Message came out in 2016; a long enough time ago to make the assumption that the project had been gently laid to rest and songwriter Paul Kintzing had moved on to something, or nothing, else entirely.

Fortunately, while that may be an understandable assumption, it is an incorrect one. Kintzing has released “Murmuring“, the first track from his forthcoming album Mend due in 2019.

The track continues the familiar songwriting style of previous releases; quiet, almost fragile vocals with sparse musical backing interjected with what feels like field recording flourishes. There’s a bit more percussion involved with this particular track and the production sounds more professional, though it manages to maintain a lo-fi vibe. That may sound like a statement at odds with itself but give a listen and you’ll agree.

There’s no firm date on the release of Mend but “Murmur” is an incredibly enticing preview of things to come. You can hear the track on Bandcamp, Spotify or wherever you like to stream your music.
