about

With "Better Than Reality" Bodi Bill are releasing their third new single. After "Kiss Operator", a loving meditation on optimism and confidence, and "What If", a melancholic ode to the strange world between the difficulty of letting go and the simultaneous longing for something lost and for a new beginning, "Better Than Reality" opposes a reality that is getting worse with an initially naive optimism.

It is as obvious as it is frightening that lying and pretending false facts are so closely connected to everyday reality. Worse still, it's so easy to push your way up and then set the world on fire. But it doesn’t help. Youth will come, must come and it will seize reality, making it better!

For a good seven years there was no new music. Up to this point Bodi Bill are pioneers of a modern musical eclecticism of Techno, Folk and Indie. Out of nowhere and without much screaming they grow up and into the hearts of the listeners, making themselves indispensable there and overflowing them with beautiful regularity in sweaty live shows. At the temporary climax of the band, other experiments become more interesting and important. Since 2012 Fabian Fenk and Anton Feist have been carrying tenderness into techno with The/Das, while Alex Stolze is working with UNMAP as well as under his own name on linking urban pop music with the intimate sound cosmos of traditional instruments. Above all, however, they leave an empty space that has not yet been filled.

Bodi Bill, then as now, is all about the exchange of ideas and creative processes, which do not take place in seclusion, but in attentive interaction. The band reflects a large circle of creative friends, who sometimes work together loosely, sometimes more closely, and whose motivation is always based first on content. As nodes in an irregularly knotted net, Bodi Bill bring the energies together again. With newly found calmness they throw old working methods and internal structures out of the pile, challenge themselves and ask counter questions rather than give answers.

The new music of Bodi Bill opens the view to the coming time and to what the band always was and always is: the joy of experimenting, the mutual creative motivation, the unconditional curiosity.
