about

Blast Unicorn is the joint project of touch guitarist Alexander Paul Dowerk and electronic musician Tobias Reber. The band's debut album "Van Halo" blends edgy eight string guitars with meticulously programmed drums and synths in a suite of quirky, delightfully disturbing and fiendishly complex compositions. Stylistically indebted to metal music and contemporary electronics but drawing just as much on pop clichees and the classic avant-gardes's formal exuberance, each piece unfolds according to its own inner logic while sharing traits with various other tracks, thus creating an interconnected space of densely compressed themes and ideas.
