Released in 2001. Valerie Trebeljahr has been quietly whittling away at her very own blueprint of pop music. Steering well clear of prevalent harmless geniality, her aim is to cleverly and intelligently dissect our perception of the world around us. Lali Puna have now become a fully-fledged band, carefully selecting band members (from Console, The Notwist, Tied & Tickled Trio, Iso68, Fred Is Dead). Following their album debut Tridecoder, Scary World Theory achieves the perfect combination of pop and (personal) politics. Behind ostensibly shy, almost withdrawn vocals, Valerie is by no means coy about confronting the world's ambivalent status quo, bluntly documenting current conditions underneath putative fragility. And the music, too, demands our full attention. Between hummable chords and sometimes soothing, almost hypnotic monotony, each repetition discloses multi-layered complexity as well as cleverly hidden counterpoints. No matter if atmospheric, exuding classical warmth or quietly breathy -- again and again Lali Puna tear heartbreaking harmonies from the sparsest of arrangements.
