Berlin Avantgarde Musician And Producer K4LT Casts A Long Disquieting Shadow With New Single, ‘LCPD’

Out of Berlin, Germany, K4LT is an avantgarde musician and producer, whose new single, ‘LCPD’, released on 2 May, addresses one of the most painful types of break-up: the amicable one.

K4LT is a visionary multi-instrumentalist, who isn’t afraid to address the bleakest of truths with the coldest of emotions, and he does it by employing a combination of genres, including Alternative, Indie, Avantgarde, Post-Punk, Doom and Dark Wave – making the resulting style his very own.

‘LCPD’ is K4LT’s first release in the past two years, following a series of personal setbacks and the loss of loved ones. Because of this, ‘LCPD’ is somewhat different to his first EP, ‘Endgame’, and is calmer, more structured, and less rock-focused, while at the same time maintaining his characteristic ominous aesthetic.

While guitars were the main instrument in his previous works, he has now expanded the role of synths in his sound, including a modded Omnichord. The guitar is still there however, but now provides an emotive layer, rather than providing riffs.

While K4LT’s name is pronounced “kalt”, the German word for cold, ‘LCPD’ is anything but – rather it’s emotive and heartfelt, his vocals somewhat reminiscent of David Bowie’s.

Stream ‘LCPD’ on Spotify, and listen to it or purchase via Bandcamp. You can find out more about K4LT and his music online on Facebook, Instagram, Spotify,
