We Need Cracks – Windrose EP (Traum V177)

We Need Cracks

The French duo We Need Cracks have been a bit of a surprise coming out of the blue and releasing a brilliant debut on Traum with their “Geometryka” EP in December 2013. Their new piece of music ‘The Windrose EP’ is a superb follow up which we hope will take you by storm as much as it did us.

Windrose EP

The Windrose EP contains four fabulous tracks. It’s freshly released via Traum Schallplatten and for sale on

‘Joran’ the first track acts is a layered track that starts out with a simple drum kick. Softly layers add up and it lifts off. It becomes a ‘sea of sounds’ with a slow motion feeling that still keeps the simplicity We Need Cracks are so good at. ‘Joran’ is a truly enchanted melodic piece of music with a timeless beauty to it.

‘Auster’ starts more house but quickly unfolds it’s beauty and connects perfectly to “Joran” featuring captivating small sequences that seem to glide down from the sky, all made of thin ivory and gold. Resting, spinning like a leaf in the wind, these melodies quickly cast a spell over us.

The third track ‘Aquilons’ starts like a classic deep house track but then quickly deforms into the melodic genre. The track lifts of with wavy synths and then exposing these soft melodies that work here as a catalyst for broader string arrangements! feels like rain drops on a piano.

‘Cers’ is a birdcage full of music and certainly bird sounds. A track with a 4 minute long melodic ‘happy/sad’ intro that washes down all grey realism in a split second and which could be a sound track for a French movie as well. A fabulous open air track that transport nature where ever you might be dancing!

Track list:

  1. Joran
  2. Auster
