This is the long-awaited fourth album from Pupkulies & Rebecca. During the past years, they have gained momentum with countless concerts in renowned clubs throughout Europe. A certain hype has arisen around the band occurring totally organically without being triggered by the press -- self-generating and in real-time. Pupkulies & Rebecca have an appeal which covers all age groups, territories and scenes. Looking For The Sea is undoubtedly Pupkulies & Rebecca's most matured recording to date. The album was recorded mainly in the south of France and the ingredients and recipes are the same as on their previous albums. The main thread is house, not in the traditional American sense but in a more European version. Not Chicago but Paris and Berlin will be heard. "Eurovision" in the true context without the contest. The songs are sung in English and French, sort of more chansons than tracks. There is no coolness and functionality to be found here; instead, there is warmth and unbridled joy for music. High-hats out of rustling leaves, old synth legends, an organetta from the flea market -- each sound is chosen carefully, so that it has room to breathe and becomes a part of the greater whole. Looking For The Sea is a multifaceted, varied and fascinating album which is easy for one to hear and immediately understand. Influences of different styles can be heard and a childish openness is apparent. Pupkulies & Rebecca show how beauteous pop music can be. According to their name, they are a duo -- but in reality they are a trio. Sepp Singwald, an all-rounder from the Berlin indie scene, has been a band member for years. An increase in the acoustic elements is witness to his influence. Various keyboard and string instruments contributed by Sepp haven't changed the direction of the songs but support them in exactly the right spot. Janosch Blaul is still the man in control and his contribution is decisive. Together with Sepp Singwald, he has created a finely-woven tapestry of sounds full of colorful patterns, perfectly tailored for Rebecca's voice. Her vocals cause the tapestry to float, light and weightless.
