Blue collar is not simply a ‘nom de plume’, it is rather an ambition: a declaration of intent and identity of a musician who professes his artistic belief. Strange days for the artistic profession, isolation frees inspiration from contingencies. Blue Collar imagines a path that contemplates sacrifice, complete dedication to the achievement of a form of supreme good.
If these words reminded you of the Zeitgeist of another space-time you are not wrong, the coordinates of Blue Collar are Central European. The semantic space is vast: madly in love with German culture and its language, Mirko is inspired by krautrock as well as in Göethe, has a tattoo inspired by David Bowie’s ‘Low’ and is a tireless collector of (German) words that he selects by elective affinity, making the titles of his songs. Blue Collar is no stranger to modernity, the subtitle of the EP Prometheus refers to the television series ‘Dark’, strongly characterized by the Apparat soundtrack
‘Gänsehaut‘ is an electronic ride embellished by the production of Rome in Reverse, the metallic and pressing rhythms of Blue Collar unfold in a wise “crescendo” of sound nuances, for an psychedelic ritual experience.
Blue Collar is part of the newborn creative collective TelaVivi Records, with an Italian-Danish headquarters, and promises to offer the listener an exceptional imagery, all to be discovered.
