This song was originaly recorded on the album with Marcin Masecki, who played last month concert as a aprt of Polish Jazz London Series.
„Already during the first tour promoting our debut album, I found out, that the time for the changes had come. The first album was recorded completely acoustically, and for this one, we’ve prepared some more instruments like electric bass, synthesizers, glockenspiel, voice and more. We are still experimenting with the new forms in composition as well as trying to find new spaces for improvisation. I really like to write songs that make us step out of our comfort zones to get us to those unknown places.”
“The album attacks us right from the start with the rhythm of music moving between influences from different parts of the world and the pulsing trance. and the melody which seems straight from Komeda songs also has the noise of the New York traffic(…) The artist provokes our imagination and takes us on several different journeys. Well – „Multitasking”. a perfect soundtrack for the reality that surrounds us”
