With the lockdown restrictions of 2020/1 well in place and under pressure from family and friends, the Crash Helmuts - brothers Norbert and Johann Helmutt - started penning an album of happy and up-tempo music to raise a smile. As Norbert commented – “music to lift the spirit and the soul.”
The Crash Helmuts – two well respected international recording stars – started work in early March of this year and as the recordings took shape, the musical and vocal quality of the tracks shone through. The labour of love had become an item of reality.
Taking on many genres, ‘Crash Course’ is a well-crafted album reflecting a crossover of schlager, pop and electro with a true European style and feel. Norbert and Johann have shifted the sound to an electronic, generic pop music sound with generous use of synths.
Typical Schlager music is a style of European popular music that is generally a catchy instrumental accompaniment to vocal pieces of pop music with simple, happy-go-lucky, easy listening and often-sentimental lyrics. The style has been frequently represented at the Eurovision Song Contest.
So, sit back, turn up the volume and get ready for a Crash Course from the Crash Helmuts!
