"sad music you want to dance to"
This EP is everything you want it to be. Alternative, post punk, wave, indie… what else? Dreamy! The instruments don’t change, the set-up is small. Still each song seems to drift off to follow its own little path, musically. NO HERO, THAT’S FINE is quirky, dark, fast and loud… everything seems out of tune but it is not. The sound of all the stuff that pushes you down. Opposed by a driving chorus and a grand final leaving you with the energy to put a positive spin on things.

"the closest to pop music we can do"
OLDPEOPLE is a constant struggle. The desire to please people meets the rejection of the mainstream. Driving rhythms and catchy melodies challenged by demanding lyrics and detuned sound spheres. With a broad band history in genres such as folk, pop, indie, punk, post-rock and hardcore, OLDPEOPLE were supposed to leave all that behind. The idea: chillwave from the living room, with only a few microphones and a laptop. The more songs, the greater the urge to do something with them. A band name was needed… a self-critical reflection. Because the demos lacked something, they were brought into the rehearsal room. Analog drums, amp feedback and some honest little fuck-ups gave the sound some soul, some edge, if you will. Besides the original idea and the inherent genres from the past, the song portfolio is best described as post punk, new wave, indie with lo-fi sprinkles. In the end, it’s all pop anyway, but hear for yourself. By the way, we are from Leipzig, Germany.
