sjerpvanwouden Leuk bandje, beheerst 't genre dat ze spelen goed maar voegen er absoluut niets aan toe. Zoals bij veel bands nu blijft de zang ver achter. Instrumentaal is de band op z'n best. Favorite track: Moths.

sittinanna_chair This album is a breath of fresh air while maintaining the vibe I love about other classic post-punk acts. Other favorite tracks are "Scorpio", "Storm", "Ballad of Oiwa", and "Contagious". Definitely going on my playlist for when I get ready for goth night, whenever we're allowed to go out again. Favorite track: 15 Stars.

joshua bradley Ötzi brings all of the vibe from the new wave punk scene that you miss. Echoes of Siouxsie Sioux and Joy Division, combine with Hook-esque basslines and the Robert Smith riffs that spill out of 15 stars. The band deftly avoids nostalgic cheekiness, and instead does something we've been waiting 30 years for, delivers urgent and modern new wave. Favorite track: Contagious.

oberoniaomnia Fantastic punk, with a Portland vide, though from Oakland, CA. If you like early Sleater Kinney, you'll love Ötzi. Where SK has the a 50% hit rate, Ötzi engages throughout. Favorite track: Contagious.

Hex.able Otzi continues to knock it out of the park with their unique post-punk sound, especially considering the circumstance in which they released this album. The vinyl is a beautiful cherry red and the quality is excellent. I can't say enough about it, thank you for the awesome sounds during such a shitty time. Favorite track: Scorpio.

Moths 03:18
Walking, writhing, reaching forward Moths dig deep into the ground And covering all up with dirt The caterpillars curl Becoming themselves where they can't be found Dream of other places And the lifetimes you could know While you sink into the shadows Of the night Dream of other places Dusk into the dawn You’re waiting and waiting and waiting for more And the moths fly off in a flurry With their wings spread out into the night And they can't quite remember what they were before All they know is that they want for more Changes deep inside me stirring Set it off, set it off, set it off, set it off, set it And the moths travel through moonlight Oh moon that old celestial friend Don't be tortured by that flame That flickering earthly thing Moths you must go forward towards the sky Letras de Español: POLILLAS Caminando, retorciéndose, adelantándose Las polillas cavan profundamente en el suelo Y cubriéndolo todo de mugre Las orugas se rizan Llegando a ser ellos mismos donde nadie los puede encontrar Sueño de otros lugares Y las vidas que puedas conocer Mientras te hundes en las sombras De la noche Sueño de otros lugares Atardecer al alba Estás esperando y esperando y esperando por más Y las polillas salen disparadas apresuradamente Con sus alas extendidas en la noche Y no recuerdan lo que eran antes Todo lo que saben es que quieren más Sueño de otros lugares Y las vidas que puedas conocer Mientras te hundes en las sombras De la noche Sueño de otros lugares Atardecer al alba Estás esperando y esperando y esperando por más Cambios profundamente dentro de mí me emocionan Haz que estallen, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar, Hazlos estallar Y las polillas viajan a través de la luz de la luna Oh luna que viejo amigo celestial No seas torturado por esa llama Esa cosa terrenal parpadeante Polillas tenéis que avanzar hacia el cielo

Hold Still 03:33
Your lips move too fast for me to read All my thoughts are gone and scattered by the wind The moonlight falls down on your face I’m falling forward, falling in I see the ocean in your eyes I’m reaching for you Tears reflecting darker skies I’m all around you I reach up to touch the ground I’m here beside you I feel the earth spin me around I hold still for you Moving closer moving in Sky and earth and skin to skin The thinnest membrane lies between Where I end and where you begin I see the ocean in your eyes I’m reaching for you Tears reflecting darker skies I’m all around you I reach up to touch the ground I’m here beside you I feel the earth spin me around I hold still for you I close my eyes You take a breath You close your eyes Pictures in your head I feel the earth spin I hold still for you Letras de Español: QUÉDATE QUIETA (Para Tallulah) Tus labios se mueven demasiado rápido para que los pueda leer Todos mis pensamientos se han ido y esparcidos por el viento La luz de la luna cae sobre tu cara Estoy cayendo hacia adelante, desplomándome Veo el oceano en tus ojos Te estoy alcanzando Lágrimas reflejando cielos más oscuros Estoy a tu alrededor Alcanzo a tocar el suelo Estoy aquí a tu lado Siento que la tierra me da vueltas Me quedo quieta por ti Acercándose moviéndose Cielo y tierra y piel con piel La membrana más delgada se encuentra entremedio Donde yo termino y donde tú empiezas Veo el oceano en tus ojos Te estoy alcanzando Lágrimas reflejando cielos más oscuros Estoy a tu alrededor Alcanzo a tocar el suelo Estoy aquí a tu lado Siento que la tierra me da vueltas Me quedo quieta por ti Cierro mis ojos Tomas un respiro Cierras los ojos Fotos en tu cabeza Siento la tierra girar Me quedo quieta por ti

Tunnels 03:26
You only wanted more You never wait In this life It’s desolate The wasteland inside Will eat away And destroy destroy destroy you Greed sets your sights Tunnels deep within Destruction in your wake And you take everything You drill to the core And you create The end times You share the fate Don’t cover your eyes You cannot hide It will destroy destroy destroy you Well you dig and you dig into the ground And you break and you break it break it down Until there’s no tale left to tell Well you dig and you dig into the ground And you break and you break it break it down The earth cries its funeral wail

Scorpio 03:37
Hyper vigilant, you’re on it Broken hearted Count the messes that you made You swear it’s what you wanted Mysterious, you’re dangerous You finish what you started You own this universe You move through stars uncharted I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you Oh but you’re a Scorpio, a Scorpio Magic moves through you and Slow burn, eyes so haunted Obstacles in your path You remain undaunted Magnetic, so vindictive You keep your secrets Manipulate me every day You’re jealous, you’re so suspicious I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you Oh but you’re a Scorpio, a Scorpio New moon in Scorpio All my past lives coming forward All your past lives coming forward Eighth house is Scorpio Ruled by the god of war Ruled by war I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you Oh but you’re a Scorpio, a Scorpio

I, all my life Did you know wrong Sat by your side By your side My eye Bleeds down my face I curse your name I seal your fate I will take my child Will haunt your night Lantern in the sky My eye Bleeds down my face I curse your name I seal your fate You thought I would be Expendable I’m coming for you From now on call me Oiwa You will see me You’ll beg for mercy You won’t find any Your sword is spinning Turning, twisting Pulling you to your grave Letras de Español: BALADA DE OIWA Yo, toda mi vida No te equivocaste Sentada a tu lado A tu lado Mi ojo Sangra por mi cara Maldigo tu nombre Yo sello tu destino Me llevaré a mi hijo Atormentará tu noche Linterna en el cielo Mi ojo Sangra por mi cara Maldigo tu nombre Yo sello tu destino Pensaste que seria Reemplazable Voy a por ti Desde ahora llámame Oiwa Me verás Suplicarás misericordia No encontrarás ninguna Tu espada esta girando Girando, retorciéndose Acercándote a tu tumba

Contagious 02:42
You’ve got, got that thing that I’m looking for Bright mind, bright light, bright eyes That I adore The world’s cold and cruel and You’re wanting more You got it all inside you What are you waiting for? In your mind, in your eyes You’re bigger than you think In the light, forward sight Your energy is infecting me You’re contagious Contagious You look like you know something That I don’t know Change my paradigm and Shake me to my core Old wise men talking at me They’re such a bore I’ve been waiting for you What are you waiting for? Your silence has never been gold There’s no silver lining at all You’re needed and brilliant and bold You slay us, you slay them They fall to the floor Step in the light And be Step in the light Show me Step in the light You’ll see Step in the light And be In the light, in the light, in the light, in the light

Eight Cups 02:49
Coming to your senses And you come into your own And leave behind everything You thought you had before Making do and make believe Was all I could think of Now I’m so conflicted I’m still addicted, addicted to your love Eight cups I leave behind me Eight cups, the ocean calls me Eight cups, the moon is my old friend Eight cups of blood and tears Eight cups that I held dear Eight cups, the moon is my new friend Coming to your senses It was written on the wall Come into yourself now Cards lay where they may fall A cage is a cage despite the things That made it comfortable Welcome to your self now And go on where you will go Eight cups, they couldn't sate me Eight cups, peril may be fated Eight cups, but I must wander on Though the hill ascends The path winds and bends Eight cups, I carry myself (Walk away, walk away) Though the night has come And I am alone Eight cups, I sing to myself Letras de Español: OCHO DE COPAS Llegando a tus sentidos Y entras siendo tú mismo Y dejar todo atrás Pensaste que era así antes Haciendo lo mejor y finjiendo Fue todo lo que pude pensar Ahora estoy tan en conflicto Todavía soy adicta, adicta a tu amor Ocho copas las dejo tras de mí Ocho copas, me llama el océano Ocho copas, la luna es mi vieja amiga Ocho copas de sangre y lágrimas Ocho copas que tuve cariño Ocho copas, la luna es mi nueva amiga Llegando a tus sentidos Estaba escrito en la pared Entra en ti mismo ahora Las cartas están donde pueden caer Una jaula es una jaula a pesar de las cosas Eso lo hizo cómodo Bienvenido a ti mismo ahora Y sigue hacia donde irás Ocho copas, no pudieron saciarme Ocho copas, el peligro puede ser condenado Ocho copas, pero debo seguir vagando Aunque la colina sube El camino serpentea y dobla Sigo adelante Aunque ha llegado la noche Y estoy sola Canto para mi

Outer Bounds 02:17
The outer bounds of the ocean It’s at the end of the earth In the realm of the dead souls Where we dance on hot coals Will we wait at the gates? Or will we swim to the outer banks In the river full of fire Take me to my final hour Take me down below the earth Flow past sorrow, hate and hurt Wander down paths unseen Where we’re free of pain and misery Last stop is the underworld Meet me in the underworld Shadows of past lives in the underworld Souls dance free in the underworld Set me free in the underworld Wait for me in the underworld I am free in the underworld

15 Stars 04:54
You want the healing hands but you don't have it in you The guiding light, but you don't have it in you The knowing glance, but you don't have it in you False romance, cause you don't have it in you Under the sky 15 stars in my eye The coldest night 15 stars are my guide My mother is a molten sphere that dances with the sun My father is a bed of tears that yearns to reach the moon My sibling is a field of grass that dries and greens anew And I am just a mound of soil that waited here for you Under the sky Is where you'll find me Where you left me Where you left me Where you left me
10.
Storm 03:54
I take my time It’s what I have You take my time I wait for so long On the outside I’m used to the cold While you on the inside You wait out the storm Enjoy your time It’s what you have When these gates open Your safety is gone On the outside We’re used to the cold But you on the inside Can you wait out the storm? Prepare for the storm Prepare for the storm Prepare for the storm Prepare for the storm

about

From Oakland, California, ÖTZI pierces the heart with their dark and passionate style of post-punk. Known for their blistering stage show and intricate songwriting, Ötzi first tore through the punk and post-punk underground with their 2017 debut LP, Ghosts, which Revolver Magazine called “a modernized but timeless take on the genre.”

For their sophomore album, Ötzi joins Artoffact Records to release Storm, a powerful and dynamic work that channels all the emotions of drastic transformation. Immediately apparent on Storm is the interweaving of brooding vocal melodies with inspired chants, and the rich interplay of hypnotic guitar sounds with volcanic bass lines set to a propulsive beat. Singer and bassist Akiko Sampson’s soaring vocal clarity often takes a sharp dive into the gutteral, “as if they’re being piped in straight from the depths of hell,” as previously described by Bandcamp Daily. Singer and drummer Gina Marie responds with calls and chants, commanding the listener to stay focused as her syncopated punk style drives an infectious rhythm. Guitarist K. Dylan Edrich blankets the groundwork set by Akiko and Gina with airy chimes that segue into aggressive riffs. With the addition of the lush synth lines composed by Sampson, bright saxophone by latest member Winter Zora, and violin by Edrich, the album flows from the luxuriant and pensive self-reflection of “Moths” to a celebration of supportive love in “Hold Still”, to the hard-hitting resolve of “Ballad of Oiwa” and “Tunnels,” expressing in each track all of the joys and pains of cathartic self-renewal.
