trace The record of this epic Nürnberg rock band starts with a sound of wind. Adequate. As old as nature metaphors are, Trace raise a tornado of melody, emotion and energy on their second longplayer. Rousing songs that will quickly get you in their ban and going straight to your eardrum with its beautiful eruptions.
Fact is: a pop-storm like that does not build up with half-hearted blowing. Therefore Trace run through the music scene since 2000, always driven by passion and the urge for development. The acuteness of Muse meets the desperation of Jeff Buckley and the determination of Coldplay.
"Magnolia" is the 2nd longplayer, produced by Trace and their drummer Ric Simon, which was recorded by themselves. Not later than the chorus of the opener "Scenario" it is clear that Trace are not any rehearsal room amateurs. Recording the record themselves is a sign of perfectionism and self-initiative. Trace like to have control over their output. DIY attitude and cinemascope melodies don't have to be antagonism. And when the result sounds as compact and dynamic as Trace do - it's much better. Or as Zündfunk (Bayern2Radio) recently assumed: "Guitars and surface that seem to fall out of your speakers and a voice that could reach the rock charts. Trace heading towards to the wide music-cinema."
The magnolia as the official title flower shows how to do it. The older the plant gets the more beautiful their blooms get. That covers Trace very good as their melodic buds bloom more and more after listening to the record over and over again. What stays is a beautiful, meditative and enthralling record that sprouts with confidence but still knows: we all have to fade. All that's left is music.
