Mueran Humanos

What are all those people talking about when they insist on supposedly handmade music? Probably not Mueran Humanos, because Carmen Burguess and Tomás Nochteff make it with their whole bodies. It’s a corporal experience for the listener, too: when they hammer out their Spanish-language, post-punk, new-wave, nightmare-pop industrial rock from their machines, as if they were trying to raze everything to the ground, it enters the auditory canal, goes along the throat, into the calves and then back up to this hollow muscle we call a heart. Which embraces the gentle violence of the Berlin duo’s music. Following a series of singles and two albums since 2007, Mueran Humanos most recently released »Hospital Lullabies«, proving they also have the right hard-hitting imagery to complement their sound. The 41-minute musical film was, of course, also made with full physical force.
