KAPUZE Situation Critical
Release Date 04/08/2021
CloudKid Presents KAPUZE - Situation Critical
Germany-based Kapuze mixes the smooth sounds of organic instruments with some overwhelming electronic beats on his debut track with CloudKid, “Situation Critical.” The aggressive, yet, uplifting sound was inspired by the artist’s emotional journey while watching climate activist, Greta Thunberg’s, speech to EU leaders about climate change, juxtaposed with Donald Trump’s State of the Union address that he watched immediately after.
“In the verse and chorus, the song is more like an alternative, indie rock song, but the drop is hard, like an EDM trap track. The lyrics are like a message to all the people in the world who feel like these topics are unimportant. I talk to them directly; I want whoever’s listening to feel my anger and understand how important it is to act against injustice.”
»I want whoever's listening to feel my anger...«
Kapuze’s aim as a singer, songwriter and producer is to combine and offset unique sounds that stir up different emotions. From the dreamy feelings a listener has when hearing more indie rock sensibilities, to the energy laced within when in front of an EDM DJ, the artist hopes audiences feel overwhelmed — in a good way — when engaging with his music’s little nuances and ear candies. Influenced by the likes of Oliver Tree and Twenty One Pilots, it is clear Kapuze’s alternative sound in his native Germany will be a force to be reckoned with.
