Are you ready for time travel? The vessel we are riding with is called TUFF TURF, and our destination are the colourful dancefloors of the 1980s. Steered with analogue devices, we are navigating to a place where darkness and desire meet. The gasoline in our tank is called Nihilist New Wave, which is a burning hot mixture of Synthwave and Post Punk that will accelerate us to high velocity. So, fasten your seatbelts, put on your sunglasses, and do not dare to forget to take a drink.
The newest album by TUFF TURF is called “Brand New Ways to Be Cruel”. It contains ten tracks of feet-moving New Wave that will easily enchant the minds and bodies of fans of Depeche Mode, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, and Fischer-Z. Even fans of кино will find their joy in “Brand New Ways to Be Cruel”. TUFF TURF combine boppy and colourful 80s disco sound with the gloomy mood of late-Cold-War Post Punk, and hence create a nihilistically happy soundscape. Each of the ten tracks urges you to dance as if there was no tomorrow. The album creates an atmosphere of a dark discotheque surrounded by flickering lights, a dancefloor crowded with jolly people wearing sunglasses, and a bar that sells only glass bottles. “Brand New Ways to Be Cruel” is a fantastic album full of joy, dynamics, and nihilism.
