Better Person | Something to Lose - Black LP
Release date: 23.10.2020
Better Person, the silent prince of the Berlin's international late-night underground pop scene, presents Something to Lose, his debut album.
Informed by 80’s power ballads, gentle sophisti-pop and forgotten Euro-Pop hits, Better Person presents an introspective and personal mix of beautifully sincere vocals and timeless song craft.
Produced by Ben Goldwasser of MGMT, and recorded in Los Angeles, Something To Lose is a breezy sonic landscape, recast as truly heartfelt – sincere and evocative as it is polished and refned. When the last notes drift away in reverb you can almost smell the ocean air.
Byczkowski may be a dreamer but he has no delusions about the real world. The album is a proclamation of a newfound devotion, but also the fear of loss that comes with it. It is not simply about love, but the bitter-sweetness of life, the fear and darkness that underscores even the most euphoric moment.
