Mydy Rabycad, under the name MYDY, have released a new album, NUMBERS. In eight songs, they analyze the period in which artists' success is measured by the number of thumbs and hearts on social networks, and a social status is defined by a number and the number of zeros on the bank account. The young band with intensive professional experience refers to the fact that music is no longer just about quality songs, but also about continuous self-presentation.
“With the album NUMBERS, a new chapter of this band is coming. Since the last album we have accumulated a lot of emotions and knowledge and we found out that we want to do things differently than it has been until now. The album is a step in a different direction more than ever before,” says the producer and keyboardist Nèro Scartch.
NUMBERS marks the end of one era and the beginning of a new journey. The echoes of whispered out electro-swing are gone forever, and with the new MYDY label, the musicians are now skillfully balancing between an electronic club sound, pop ambition, knocking on radio editors, and an epic soundtrack to a fantasy thriller from a dystopian world in which the cold, impersonal technologies have definitely tamed humankind. The social lethargy, in which our lives are dictated by abstract pointers, is mainly reflected in the refrain of the title track, Numbers, in which the singer Žofie Dařbujánová, with rage in her voice, sings that all those numbers have long since lost their deeper meaning. The producer details of the track Gimme More also refers to the digital era of social media and shallow communication. One of the examples is the sound of an incoming message which splits the verse from the chorus and will surely make you check your mobile. Sonic-wise, Mydy Rabycad strikes the current pop sound especially in the hit Fire, which enhances the gloomy atmosphere and a completely new position of the vocals. Its minimalist beat slowly sips so as to to eventually emerge and wrap the listener like an anaconda.
