If there is anything we need in this introspective and difficult time, they are powerful projects that address issues that concern us all. And the acceptance of one's identity is undoubtedly one of those great matters that must be put on the table immediately. In Weirdo, the new single from the avant-garde pop duo Ätna and the techno marching band Meute, we find a perfect formula to embrace differences and make them a determining and unique factor in our way of being and understanding the world. And the music video that they release today connects with the depths of our essence, claiming the importance of self-knowledge and the celebration of our personality.

They met for the first time in the summer of 2019, before the pandemic hit our lives and forced both musical groups to suddenly stop their plans and festivals. And their first approach revealed a brilliant connection that now they materialise in an interesting collaboration. Singer and synth player Inéz and drummer Demian Kappenstein, who together make up Ätna and have got more than thirty million plays with their first releases, join forces with Meute, a band whose electronic music proposals and continuous experimentation has already been presented live in more than three hundred shows. A consolidated alliance that shows the importance of collaborating between artists as a way to seek new solutions to unknown phenomena.

“It’s about including everyone, no one should be excluded,” Inéz explains about this new single, in which they show a vindictive attitude through music and dance to celebrate the identity of each one of us. And it is that the percussion and marimba so characteristic of Meute's work gain even more strength with the incorporation of Ätna, immersing us in an ecosystem with dreamlike overtones that, besides being intriguing and mysterious, results in a hypnotic single loaded with meaning. “The word acceptance already has the word dance in it,” says Demian. And the music video perfectly proves it.
