“All children are going to the funeral, but Hagen doesn’t – he will be brought.
All children are looking at the burning house, except Klaus – he’s looking out of it.”
- Tyler Milchmann - “Alle Kinder” (“All children”)
Welcome to the dark adult fairy tale world of Tyler Milchmann, where the electric chair is the ticket to a mysterious journey and the voices, springing forth from speakers all across the planet, spread fear and panic.
“Strange Days” is the debut CD release of Kiev’s Tyler Milchmann. It is an album that blends awful themes with black humour, orchestral arrangements with aggressive rhythms, dance beats with thoughtful instrumental compositions; all sung with a combination of German and English vocals.
“Strange Days” is a collection of many stories, both twisted and surreal. There is the psychological thriller of a man who attempts to understand a serial killer, until their two consciousnesses blend with each other, and it is no longer clear which of them (or maybe both of them?) is frying in the electric chair. The girl who tries to reach the distant stars of outer space, rather than facing another cold ordinary morning. Luxury whores, killing either from hunger or boredom. And beautiful angelic creations, that do not bring any absolution, but rather sweep down on semitransparent wings and unleash the final demise of humanity.
The days, when the most unthinkable becomes possible, are very, very strange days…
