'I want to make something that is situated between Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Yeezus by Kanye West'. That’s the legendary elevator pitch Porcelain id used to challenge producer Youniss Ahamad into collaborating on their debut album.
Together they drew the blueprint for Bibi:1 in Youniss' home studio. Track by track, without looking back. In the studio, the songs were taken to a higher level. The two invited a pack of talented friends and young musicians to the studio to add parts, a stark contrast to the solitary approach of their Eps. The result sounds like the ultimate symbiosis of Porcelain id and Youniss searching but ambitious. Fragile, but rough. Poppy, but disruptive. Sometimes challenging. Then welcoming again. Sometimes even danceable.
The first single Man Down is inspired by the recurring tragedy of drownings in Antwerp, it sounds like a troubled stroll through the city. A creepy but boastful horn section blasts until the breakneck twist.
