Cologne electro pop duo VIMES are streaming their new single Celestial on soundcloud. The single is out on Humming Records (Yes Cadets, In Golden Tears, Flashguns) on September 30th. Celestial is a catchy dance tune that is currently climbing on the Hypemachine charts.
The past 12 months has seen the band support Hot Chip in Mexico, play headline sets across Europe as well as numerous continental festivals including Dockville, Eurosonic, First We Take Berlin and Reeperbahn Festival.
VIMES are made up of Azhar Syed & Julian Stetter. Azhar is Nigerian born to Indian humanitarian workers who grew up all over Europe. He met Julian when he moved to German to study visuals arts and VIMES was born. Accompanied by tour drummer Johannes Klingebiel and complex visual elements, this set-up has existed for little over a year.
