Florian Kruse and Hendrik Burkhard joined forces last year as TheGround and released the promising Dediction EP on Steve Bug’s Audiomatique Recordings. The duo’s maiden musical voyage hints at even bigger things to come. As the pair continue to evolve their sound, Bug’s imprint have organized a mighty remix package, featuring interpretations by Stelios Vassiloudis, Jonas Saalbach and Fake Mood.
But wait, there’s more! We’re thrilled to world premiere the visually evocative music video for “Kingdom Of Crumbling Walls” featuring Vincenzo & Mi.li.an (Vincenzo Remix).
The visuals are extracted from the upcoming graphic novel Matching Belle – Diaries of a Homeless Heidi by Maximilian Schöngen and Ryan McLaughlin that was written by Samantha Cable and illustrated by Zaza Uta Röttgers.
Here’s a synopsis of the graphic novel:
After a door-slamming breakup, a naive young woman tries to stay off the streets by following the dating advice from a prostitute who’s been outsmarting men her entire life. Disguised as a Tinder-based love story, Matching Belle is a reflection of dating in the modern world and asks audiences to put a price on their own sexuality. This story gives a powerful, new face to modern-day homelessness.
