Next Friday, September 18th, TUYS will be presenting the final act of their five-part series A Curtain Call for Dreamers - a song called “Saturday Night”.
With their newest project, TUYS have set out on a journey into the realms of psych-pop to mingle elements of music and theatre, creating a more profound digital experience, and “Saturday Night” stays true to those commitments. The song is a metafictional, postmodern work about characters lost in interwoven nets of fiction, dealing with existential issues such as identity and reality. The characters we have met in the music videos so far are about to meet for the grande finale, in a music video that will come out on the 25th of September.
Since the release of the first episode “Papaya”, the series has accumulated about 100,000 views on YouTube. TUYS signed to WOLX Management in Belgium and to the label Chili Music Korea. The songs have been integrated into the rotations of, among others, Deutschlandfunk Nova, Eldoradio, and have been added to Spotify’s “New Friday Belgium” and “Indie Goesting” playlists, while indie heroes Leoniden added “Papaya” to their “#staythefuckhome” playlist. “Hungry For More” appeared in Deezer’s “Freitag alles neu” and put TUYS on Spotify’s cover for their “Made in Luxembourg” playlist.
A Curtain Call for Dreamers was written for stages, and that’s where it will finally be taken in January 2021. TUYS will tour Europe under COVID-friendly circumstances and limited capacities, playing Kantine am Berghain in Berlin (22.01), Glockenbachwerkstatt in Munich (26.01) and Kramladen in Vienna (28.01), among others.
If you haven’t done it yet, you should definitely watch the videos for "Papaya", "More Than An Account", "Ketchup On My Own Knees (Hungry For More)" and "Jungle" here!
