Slowly passing landscapes, visually blurred by the soothing emptiness of your brain. Their music sounds like driving on vast roads built out of pushing rhythms. Before you realize it, you made your way all across Austria. Train, Motorbike, Skateboard, the distance from Vorarlberg straight into the underground of Vienna seems like nothing. Time begins to lose its presence as soon as you play the first Song.
Lupus´s music is firmly rooted in Blues, Psychedelic Rock and Folk but not afraid of exploration. It seems like the tight rhythm section and the distinctive vocals form a strong enough base to spread out in every direction. You can feel some Country, some Pop and fair amount of Kraut. Without forewarning the mood and rhythm of a song changes and you get sent to another part of the instrument loving pre-90´s. The five dudes manage to expand the scope of their playful sounds by adding unexpected instruments and heavy riffs.
The lyrics seem like a poetic way to cope with the big burdens the world imposes on us. They can stand alone and still make you sway to their meaning. The strong but shaky voice indicates that it has something to say. Themes about the planet and how it treats us get contrasted by even deeper thoughts like how taxis are “bringing people from town to town”.
Listening to various other musical projects the members play in, makes you certain that having an original sound comes natural to them. Their undeniable twists set them apart from other bands of that genre range. In concert, the guys from Lupus have an astonishing confidence playing their instruments. But they are also nice. It´s a humble pack!
