SUNDAY CLASSIC GTC: PSYCH-POP VIDEO: Alli Neumann – “Merlot, Macht & Muse” (Hohes Fieber – EP)
Alli Neumann – Hohes Fieber, is available at Apple Music.
by Walter Price
When you know the potency of your powers, the good, and the destructive, maybe a fair warning is the best way to approach a relationship. The uncertain balances of love, desire, and intoxicating turmoil can go either way. Everlasting passion or total emotional annihilation…or both. Hamburg Germany’s compelling popstress Alli Neumann delivers these honest sentiments in her recent  single “Merlot, Macht & Muse”. Delivered in a Kim Carnes-esque vocal and wrapped in psych-pop perfection. It would seem plausible that this track is coming from the storyteller’s personal experiences…perhaps the truth is better-left unknown. So, pour yourself a large glass of wine, merlot preferably, and soak up all that Alli is laying down.
“Merlot, Macht & Muse” comes from Neumann’s EP, Hohes Fieber (Jive Germany).

“To everyone who thinks I’ve only played PlayStation for the past 10 years and worked on the theater wardrobe … wrong! I wrote and released a song. I am ready to receive your shit storm!” – A. Neumann (translated)
Was ich böses denk,
Wenn ich mich gerad nicht ablenk
Die Stimme, die ich hör, die mir befiehlt dich zu zerstörn
