Jan Roth - Siebzehn
Artist Jan RothSong title Siebzehn
Year 2013Genre(s) Altenative
Electronic musician Jan Roth unveils a charming instrumental tune, 'Siebzehn', with a video ahead of the release of his debut album 'L.O.W' set for release on July 26th 2013 through German record label Sinnbus.
The video features Jan and two band members recording the track in a studio using two synths and a drum machine. The track has a hint of melancholy about it with a repetitive background melody and frequent minor key inferences. It is definite chilled-out music and is almost like a modern day, electronic type of chamber music. The name of the track translates to 'Seventeen' in English, which leaves few clues about the song's meaning along with the lack of lyrics, but the mystery to it only adds to its appeal.
The album title, 'L.O.W.', is an acronym for 'Lieder ohne Worte' meaning in English 'Songs Without Words'. The simplicity of this, the unpretentious video and the monotonous track titles reflects his own passion for simple but stunning tunes. He has been involved in various musical ventures including playing drums for German musician Tim Neuhaus at his live shows, appearing on records by Clueso and Max Prosa and also playing a part in several jazz bands.
