Greetings from the ancient library: The only constant is change." "Flash Language", the new album by Cologne-based TICS, will be released on 02.02.2024. The space becomes smaller, the personal larger. It is no longer the social turmoil that the band describes with their driving and concise sound: Rather, it is the experience of these very turmoils. Whether through complex but catchy song structures. Over heated rhythms reminiscent of DC bands ala Q And Not U. Or sinister post-punk soundscapes: with "Flash Language", TICS develop their voice through song and melody. "Flash language", as the dictionary puts it, is a language variety that complements, expands or modifies a language, but cannot exist independently of it. Be that as it may: "Flash Language" takes a step back from social and political reference and comparison. Talk to each other!
