"nichts", FJØRT's current album, is an almost 50-minute experience. The album gains numerous new facets from the dense sound of the Aachen based band, which flows between all varieties of hardcore and post-rock. The valleys are deeper than ever, there is hardly any air to breathe in the heights. The atmosphere feels almost tangible. Lyrically, FJØRT have always been cryptic and remain true to this line, but they are also more specific on "nichts" than ever before. Maybe because times like these crave ruthlessness more than ever. Maybe also because a kind of gallows humor found its way onto the album, which skilfully breaks with the absolute seriousness. Never before has this band sounded more varied and simply bigger.
