DRAMAS are an electro-/art pop duo, formed in 2016 by Viktoria Winter and Mario Wienerroither. DRAMAS are driven by rather unconventional chord progressions and structures, sparse and subtle synthesis of organic sounds, a blend of soft yet powerful synths, crisp percussion and vocal harmonies. DRAMAS portray subconscious impressions and conflicts which have entered consciousness; the lyrics stand out with opposing and contradictory pairs: lightness and weight, permanence and transience, spirit and flesh, all of which feature as essential elements of the songs themselves. Watch out for their emotional and cinematic debut EP »Libra« and for tour dates. The album »Nothing Is Permanent« will be released on October 26th 2018.
NOTHING IS PERMANENT (album released in October 2018): "DRAMAS have skillfully mastered the high art of the inbetween. Between a heavy heart and the knowledge that everything changes, that nothing stands still. Between life’s big questions and carnal lust. Between the willing flesh and the weak spirit. Between the transience of things and the eternity of their meaning. Between together and alone. Between lightness and weight. Between the analog and the digital, piano and electronica. Between the 80s and today, playful pop and subtle drama. Between the calm but touching, and the melancholic yet hopeful. And in general: between her and him, their musical dialogue allowing the contradictory nature of our being to truly shine. But don’t interpret this approach of Viktoria Winter and Mario Wienerroither (the duo formed in 2016) as indecision. Quite the opposite - the shades between black and white are more interesting and life-like than the two ends of the spectrum. All these gradations come together as an impressive whole in “Nothing Is Permanent" (by Manuel Fronhofer)
