Straight Towards Debut EP


Home1.0 Music1.1 NewsStraight Towards Debut EP

“Legacy” is the musical legacy of the eventful careers of Thomas Rückert and Stephan Schulz, who together form the Berlin duo “Straight Towards”. A life’s work of modern songs, but still clearly showing their influences from the synthpop and dark wave scene of the 80s. Stylistically overall an innovative mix of rock as well as classical elements, paired with German and English lyrics and vocals full of character.

Fiddled out on a long life journey and constantly developed, the tracks now have the desired sonic maturity. Pieces that get under your skin. Shaped by real experiences from different times and phases. This is about real life, love, hope, dreams and critical self-reflection.

The monumental sounding opening “Dark Thoughts in Red” surprises with an imaginatively told vampire story. “Day by Day” comes up with driving rhythms, strong chorus and electronic tinkering. In the German-language pieces “Schwerelos” and “Befreit” the rock guitars officially break their way. A successful conclusion is the great hymn “Sun and Rain”.

Their first exciting and trend-setting encounter takes place, appropriately enough, on stage. In their youth, the two original Berliners Tommy and Stephan each perform in different bands at a concert and thus get to know each other.

But then they each go their own way again. Until their paths cross again two decades later. In the meantime, Tommy has matured as a singer and songwriter and Stephan realizes his ambition to become a professional musician and producer after a drastic life change.

Now everything fit together. Inspired by their roots from synthpop and darkwave times, they now create a novel combination of electronic sounds with rousing rock sounds and soulful, symphonic elements.

Almost inexhaustibly Tommy provides always new song ideas. And Stephan takes care of the suitable garb. And so they create music together without detours through perfect complementation, which immediately and directly captivates you. Straight Towards.
