Listening to the first track on 'Storytelling' you feel welcomed in a colorful new world full of exciting adventures up ahead. An overwhelming feeling like you've just been swallowed up by a giant metallic white whale is taking over just when you're spit out on the beach of a tropical island full of interesting sounds and experiences. Encounters with a melancholic ambiance and foreign influences keep you curious all the way through the album. When the drums come in you realize this is a universal journey everyone goes through at a certain point in their life and there's no escaping that final confrontation. You just surrender and accept there are no means to outrun or escape your faith anymore. Strap in for Strapatsen' Storytelling.
In the producer’s own words:
“These tracks are musical stories about me, but without any text or titles to tell them. The best you can do is close your eyes, sit back or lay down, relax and just listen. I rather stimulate the listener to interpret the songs on their own instead of telling them how they’re meant.” - Strapatsen
