8 Words for EASTER

Berlin based duo EASTER (Stine Omar Midtsaeter and Max Boss) are about to drop their second album this Thursday and will be celebrating the release on at Luzia, Oranienstr 34 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, where they will perform all songs of the new record. The new yet untitled album”The Softest Hard” (prelisten via Bandcamp) is the follow-up to the duo’s heavily synth-based slow-pop debut “Ur A Great Babe”, which was released in July last year. The songs “Rabbit”, “Alien Babies” and “Champagne 121212”, which have been pre-released during the last few weeks came with the beautiful no-budget videos I posted below (for more check out Stine’s YouTube page).
Since the character of EASTER’s music, lyrics and videos is rather intuitive I wanted to avoid doing a formal q&a with the duo and instead send them a couple of words that popped up in my head while I did my research. Here are Stine’s associations:

“is human bodies allover the place and most intimidating. I’m sure there’s good porn and bad porn, but as a celibacist I have a hard time being entertained by it, far as I’ve tried.”

“must be a genre or is it the name of an underground movement for dolphins? I dont like genres.”

“sounds delicious. Cream is essential. Our friends are hosting cool events in Berlin under this name.”

“is how to make dada poems. Grabbing a text cutting every single word into pieces then putting them in a bowl and picking word for word to put them back in a new order this becoming ur dada poem. Check out our new song EvFL which is based on a poem by Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. She was the master dada and our song with video will be part of a bigger project about her going down in NYC next year. Give it up for Lily Benson!”

“is a French man making emotional music. Give it up for o F F Love!

“is a kind of guitar with only 4 strings. Max wants to sell his bass and made a last solo album with its help before putting it on Ebay in January.”

“is the town where our father lives. There u can ride a ferris wheel with heated wagons including champagne for a solid price.”

“is way to go if ur broke but still inspired.”
