WL//WH New Music: HERR WADE “Das Paket”

New Music  HERR WADE

The close-knit Norwegian-German pop duo of  Jørn O. Åleskjær (known for his work with The Loch Ness Mouse and Monobird, Swart Vredag) and Sebastian Voss (The Fisherman and his Soul, Nah…, Lancaster), under the alias Herr Wade, has been making waves since 2022, delivering a plethora of infectious pop tunes through two albums “Herr Wade dreht am Kabel”, as well as “Tatsächlich nur ein Lied” and various EPs.

The two friends follow last March’s double CD, “WorldWideWadeland”, a collection of the 2023 monthly single series, with a symbolic retro-tinged video for “Das Paket”, a track from the recent character-driven “Chief Inspector Wade: Paket mit Code” EP via their affiliated DIY label  Bureau Platiruma!!!

“The world of criminology produces fascinating figures. One of them is Chief Inspector Wade. This EP introduces him to the audience: a man as brilliant as he is lonely and torn.”

A nostalgic and bittersweet jangly tune, “Das Paket”, weaves a vibrant outpouring of subtly piercing, sparkling guitar melodies, through casual steady drum beats and grounding bass pulses, whilst heartfelt introspective vocals, surrounded by emotional shivering organ swathes and sheets of uplifting support, observe the loneliness and alienation of a troubled soul.

A metaphorical song about the protective psychological shell one might wear because they are fearful syncs seamlessly with slightly fuzzy vintage visuals, showing the long arduous process that a parcel travels from post office to home delivery with “Das Paket” theme of the soundtrack.

Herr Wade “Das Paket” can be found on the EP “Chief Inspector Wade: Paket mit Code” via Bureau Platiruma!!!
