Even renowned musicians cut their teeth on clean, pure pop songwriting. But it would be presumptuous to conclude that they are generally incapable. Often it is simply the respect for the fact that with a focus on the ascetic, one could sell oneself below one's actual value and talent. And so it is always refreshing when someone sets out to prove nothing and devotes themselves entirely to the celebration of pop music. This is the case with Brainchild, the band around the Basel musician and singer Antonin Queloz. With "Heartbreak Horizon" they present an astonishingly mature debut album and flirt with pop clichés without ever sounding too trite or stale. Equipped with a voice that reminds the listener of John Mayer or Jamie Cullum, flanked by a band that consists of respected exponents from the Basel music scene and carried by a lot of lightness, Brainchild are now preparing to move out of anonymity into the limelight. "Emotional", Queloz himself titles the songs on the debut album wordlessly. Emotional, yes - but what Brainchild have written for an album has more facets than pure emotional outbursts.
