An eery, infinitely deep beat greats the one who listens to Fernweher’s latest single, Armor. And one could mistakingly mark the song as a simple techno track.
But soon, Armor is developing another facette by adding the ethereal voice embracing the pumping soundtrack. With origins in Italy, Fernweher is working in Manchester now, inspired by the likes of RY X or SOHN.
There’s a sad note to Armor as the queer artist processes a hard break-up with his ex-boyfriend. “When you go through a tormented breakup and face your demons, you end up being stronger. It’s as if every disappointment over time builds an armor around you,” explains Fernweher.
