Odd Beholder, the Electronica / Art Pop project of the Swiss musician Daniela Weinmann, releases "Disaster Movies“ on April 9th, 2021. It's the first single from the sophomore full- length album "Sunny Bay"!

"Disaster Movies" is Weinmann's artistic extension of her political activism. Right after her debut album, she co-founded the Swiss branch of the international climate protection organisation "Music Declares Emergency".

"Disaster Movies" is a comment on our decadence and our destructive consumerism. Weinmann speaks about the track:

"Two protagonists recall their teenage nonchalance, how they used to wish the whole damn town would burn down. They are now standing on the site of an actual catastrophe. Now that a monstrous flood has swallowed the entire town they don't feel an inch of glee. Disappointed in their own premature disillusion, they feel like they have entered one of the disaster movies that they used to watch. What they quickly realise is that it doesn't feel heroic at all. Instead everything seems dull and impractical, and terribly frightening."

Sonically, "Disaster Movies" is rooted in bouncing arpeggios, it’s like a synth-pop soundtrack to a monstrous calamity unfolding in slow motion. The neon veneer of digital pop is being shredded before us by the brash reality of nature exhausted and drained.
