about

Music Liberation:

‘Get It Back’ is the new album from Hanin Elias, a former member of the Atari Teenage Riot (more on that later), who has delivered a rather stunning electronic record that will challenge you right from the off. It’s a blistering assault on your senses and only the very brave will make it to the end. No really...

Some you may or may not know that Atari Teenage Riot recently reformed after a near ten year hiatus, a period in which neither remaining member of the group spoke to each other. Hanin Elias was meant to be involved in that project which included her co ATR collaborator Alec Empire, however despite providing vocals for the comeback single ‘Activate’, she was unashamedly dropped for what Empire described as delivering vocals which had lost Elias famous screaming voice. Those vocals can now be found on the track ‘Axis Shifting’, which appears on ‘Get It Back’, with Elias setting out to prove that Mr Empire was wrong to drop her and she can go it alone.

Kicking off with the title track, Elias quickly establishes her dynamic voice as being the forefront driving force behind her music. Her voice is high pitched and at times extremely cutting, with her passion directly emanating through her vocals. The music behind her is ferocious too, with debut single ‘Do You Know!!!’ demonstrating often bleak, abstract, and fast pitched electronica which at times can be difficult to keep up with.

Elias has an ear for a range of different genres, with drum and bass, hip hop, house, folk, and pop music all referenced throughout the 11 tracks and 40 minutes. Contemporary comparisons can be drawn with the likes of Teeth, Crystal Castles, and Glass Diamond. ‘Dead Eyes’ is perhaps my favourite track on the record, with its driving beats, spaced out synths, and repeated vocals drawing you in. The inclusion of the Tying Tiffany remix of the accessible ‘Future Noir’ midway through the album demonstrates the ability of Elias to rain in her extreme vocals and beats when required showing off her clear musical knowledge.

‘Get It Back’ is clearly not an album for every occasion, with its dark themes and destructive nature not lending itself easily to the mass market. However if you’re able to get past its abrasive edge you will be pleasantly surprised at the subtlety and craft that has gone into making a challenging yet ultimately rewarding electronica album.

Medienkonverter:

Dass das Leben auf einer beschaulichen Insel von Französisch-Polynesien im Süd-Pazifik recht inspirierend sein kann, glaubt man gern. Hanin Elias hat das beste daraus gemacht, nämlich ein neues Album. Mit „Get it back“ startet die ex-Frontfrau der Digital-Hardcore-Rocker Atari Teenage Riot in 2011 durch. Die unsanfte Trennung von ATR ist Geschichte und Hanin Elias präsentiert sich nach einer über fünfjährigen Auszeit auf dem Atoll Huahine mehr denn je als Energiebündel. Für „Get it back“ hat sie von dort aus ihr Netzwerk an Kreativen aus der internationalen Musikszene aktiviert und etliche genreübergreifende Kollaborationen initiiert, die unterschiedlicher und spannender nicht sein könnten.

„Get it back“ ist im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein Überraschungspaket. Verschiedene Electronica-Styles, Dubstep, Funk, Hip-Hop, Rock, Industrial und Digital Hardcore treffen auf eine längst nicht leiser gewordene Screamerin, Shouterin, Rapperin und Sängerin, die ständig zwischen wildem Raubtier und zahmem Kätzchen pendelt. Jeder Track ist wie ein Mikrokosmos, der – harmonisch ausbalanciert – für sich allein stehen kann und sich gleichzeitg perfekt in die Ganzheit des Albums einzufügen vermag. Schaut man sich die „Kollaborateure“ genauer an, erscheint das gar nicht so selbstverständlich. Neben dem chilenischen Musiker Diego Sagredo der Gruppe ICI, mit dem Hanin Elias die Stücke „Do you know“, „Melancolia“ und „Money“ aufgenommen hat, sind die Berliner Electro-Hip-Hop-Combo Mutfak mit von der Partie, ebenso Vigilante (aus Chile), die hierzulände mit ihrem harten Industrial-Electro längst auf den Tanzflächen angekommen sind, und Tying Tiffany, die für einen Remix des 2001er-Hits „Future Noir“ gewonnen werden konnten. Ein besonders schöner und faszinierender Song, „I want you“, entstand in der Zusammenarbeit mit der aus Tahiti stammenden Gruppe Tikahiri – ein sanftes, mystisch-folkloristisch inspirierters Stück voller Leidenschaft. Ein echter Dancefloor-Smasher wurde mit dem Belgier Yeti Popstar (Velvet Underwear) und den Pariser „digital horror“-Künstlern von Mismerizer produziert - „Dead Eyes“ ist Disco pur.

Wilder könnte die Mischung kaum sein, doch das macht gerade den Reiz von „Get it back“ aus, das trotz der vielen „Beteiligten“ noch immer unverkennbar Hanin Elias ist. Wer keine Berührungsängste und Lust auf ein musikalisches Abenteuer hat, liegt mit dem Comback-Album genau richtig. Als Bonus gibt es einen stylischen Videoclip zu „Do you know“ - digital hardcore visuals mit hohem Schnitttempo. Schön, dass Hanin Elias wieder da ist – welcome back!

Track Name: Do you know!!!
1,2,3,4!
Do you know that Religion is a lying rat?

We know all that, we know all that

Do you know that the government is Part of it?


We know all that, we know all that!

Do you know we can try as a matter of fact?

We know all that we know all that!

Do you that the more we kill, the richer we get?

We know all that we know all that!

What you tell us is nothing new, what can we do, what can we do?
We sing about changes till we get consumed, we become like them,
just as they assumed.
Everything is said before, i can't repeat it anymore.
In every truth lies a lie, in every lie you find the truth

You know you don't have to do a thing,
it will come by itself like it always came
We only have to refuse and wait till they gonna implode all by themselves

cause we know all that....cause we know all that...cause we know all that...cause we know all that!

ahhhh

What you tell us is nothing new, what can we do what can we do
We sing about changes till we get consumed, we become like them,
just as they assumed.
Everything is said before, i can't repeat it anymore.
In every truth lies a lie, in every lie you find the truth

You know you don't have to do a thing, it will come by itself like it always came
We only have to refuse and wait till they gonna implode all by themselves
Track Name: You Suck
How come that even if we try so hard no man seems to hear and see how we start?
So many of us are trying and dreaming but we live an illusion cause they hate the screaming, they want us to sing a nice refrain but when it comes to the test, they don't care for the rest.
I'm not sitting here and give in to this shit, don't wait until you say: "it's all right, suck my dick..."
you suck, you suck, you suck...

where would you be if you worked so hard, you created this system
and you only complain, until you are a part of it!
Fuck that shit!

Your problems are a motherfucking little joke, don't tell me that you suffered from the violence that you woke, you want us to be cute, sexy and nice but we have enough, much too high is the price,
you suck!

Janek:
You fucking Macho with the dick in your hand, is that all you want and all you got my friend?
You fucking asshole want all her cunt, this ain't no porno-land, no this is war my friend!

You sing about money, and someone disrespects you, this world is imploding and we're an object for you, if you get asked, where are the women? You just say: hey ho, in my new video!"
But the truth is, you don't give em a chance, they should stay where they are, underneath your pants!
You have all this luxury but you're so poor
your heart is empty and your brain, that's for sure.

Janek:
You fucking Macho with the dick in your hand, is that all you want and all you got my friend?
You fucking asshole want all her cunt, this ain't no porno-land, no this is war my friend!

you suck, you suck, you suhuhuhuhuhuhuck, you know it that was your time but it's all over now you're mine.
you suck, that was just a step too far, you really suck, you superstar..
you suck, you suck, you suck

Track Name: Dead Eyes
Show them who you are, when you take the click,
they have the computer to show them how we tick,
they analyse your mind, cause they want to control,
They will see everything, a big web powerful.
we all get lost in it, naive and full of shit,
lies, you're full of lies,

give me a reason to put my trust in you,
transparent lifestyle has turned my feelings blue
Your propaganda of a big free world, fades with the leaks and cracks of your worn out words,
lies, you're full of lies, you think you see, but you see nothing, with your dead eyes

Adeline:
you hide behind the screen, feels like broken glass, it makes me wanna scream and spit you out my mouth
dead eyes, cold heart, it fills my love inside,
hate burned the skin outside, your dead eyes, can't hide...
whats inside your mind, right underneath the lies
lies you're full of lies, lies you're full of lies,
you think you see but you see nothing
lies you're full of lies..

I wanna be free and not be watched by you,
I wanna be free and not be watched by you,
I wanna be free and not be watched by you,
I wanna be free and not be watched by youuuuuu
I wanna be free and not be watched by you, what's the whole paranoia for, how can you live your live like this go live your own life i'm gonna live mine what ever i do is none of your business look in the mirror and see your own sickness,
back off, back off, back off!

Adeline:
You think you know me but you're blind
You try to see me but you're deaf
You try to hear me but i hide
You think you feel me but you're death
you think you know me but you're blind
you try to see me but you're deaf
You try to hear me but i hide
You think you feel me but you're death

give me a reason to put my trust in you,
transparent lifestyle has turned my feelings blue
Your propaganda of a big free world, fades with the leaks and cracks of your worn out words,
lies, you're full of lies, you think you seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.........
Track Name: Future Noir (Tying Tiffany Remix)
Look at the future - Future Noir.
It will come to an End - Future Noir
Politics of interest,
Survival of the fittest
Monopolisation, global express,
First and No class
Culture wipe out, Male bonding
Lust for a war - Success longing, afraid to love
Look at our behaviour, Future Noir
It will come to an end, my sweet friend
Look at this culture, Culture Noir
Need something to do? Just start a war!
Beauty and wisdom is so far Future Noir
Justify the fear - replace love with death
I don't mind it - Future Noir
Just don't want to return - when it's all done
No light at the end Future Noir
Is it all in my head? - Am I the director?
Do we have to - Overcome?
To avoid Future Noir
I can see - through your mask
smiling into - barbarity
I don't know - I don't see
Lie to yourself Future Noir
We live for the money Future Noir
There is enough - for everyone
A few have it all Future Noir
They will never die - D.I.Y.
They possess - They keep it all
Future Noir Future Noir
what if we resist - set our minds free
just refuse - to Future Noir
Climate gets hotter - we get cold
becoming the dragon - that we were told
Our own decay - it makes me shiver
The suction of - Future Noir...
Resist the stimulus satiation...
Track Name: Melancolia
Here in the cold, in the distance of your soul,
in the night, in the dark, in the absence of your heart,

i find myself like a star in the sky,
all alone and warm,
far away from your charme.

should i go back where you're waiting for me
or search myself, till i find a place to be
in this world...

I always come back to myself..
i have to be so much more than this..

here in the cold, in the distance of your soul,
in the night, in the dark in the absence of your heart
i find myself like a star in the sky all alone and warm
far away from your charme

should i go back where you're waiting for me
or search myself till i find a place to be?

why cant you come closer to me
understand the things i see
doubts in my mind, make me sad and blind
don't make me choose when all out there is mine.
the one i am with you only exists with you
Track Name: Axis Shifting
Axis shifting (Hanin Elias)

Are you ready?
They mess with the water, the rain and the sun
They can make the earth shake, no need for a gun
You want us to play with the money you made,
while you play with us but
it's never too late!
We all see the truth if we open our eyes
Stop staring at their box, it's filled with their lies
electromagnetic frequencies unite with clouds of death
i prefer natural chaos than organized death
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?

earth is shaking, rearranging, worlds are shifting, axis changing,are
you ready for the strange, global warming, climate change?

cancer caused by electromagnetic waves, (invisible weapons, heat waves
an radar) why would they wanna have sick their own slaves
(Nu school of
warfare showing how they care..)
Virus and swine flu made in the USA,
new military methods to make us obey,
overpopulation? no problem for the nation, just set up an earthquake,
it's for their own sake!

We're watching you
we're watching you play around
we're watching you play around!

Earth is shaking , rearranging, worlds are shifting , axis changing, are
you ready for the strange? Global warming, climate change?
Don;t tell us it's for own protection, he!
I don't wanna be protected in this sick useless way!!
Fuck you!
Fuck you!

Desert occurs where there once was a river,
your megalomania makes me shiver!


Makes me shiver.....
