Xmal Deutschland single “Incubus Succubus” from “Early Singles” + “Pariah” from Anja Huwe’s debut solo album “Codes”

Following the previously shared video for Xmal Deutschland’s Allein and Anja Huwe’s debut solo single Rabenschwarz, two more offerings are available to hear: the original version of Xmal Deutschlands iconic hit Incubus Succubus and Pariah, the second single from the debut solo release from Xmal Deutschlands front-woman, Anja Huwe.

Originally released in 1982, “Incubus Succubus” was part of a 12″ also containing the tracks “Zu Jung Zu Alt” and “Blut Ist Liebe”. This is the first time the original single is available digitally, having been out of print until the 12″ was recently re-released via Sacred Bones. Incubus Succubus features on the forthcoming ‘Early Singles 1981-1982′, which also contains two bonus tracks “Allein”  (from the compilation “Nosferatu Festival”) and “Kälbermarsch” (from the compilation “Lieber Zuviel Als Zuwenig”).

Invited by her long-time friend Mona Mur, Huwe reconsidered her decades-long hiatus from music and decided to join Mur in her studio in Berlin. Together, they worked for a year and a half, composing, performing and producing the tracks from scratch which eventually became the album ‘Codes’. The new single Pariah shows the intentional interchange between languages on the record: “Since I sing multilingually, and often work with metaphors, I hope that the listener can grasp the moods without understanding them literally. I believe that voice, expression, and sound can achieve an overall atmosphere. Sometimes melancholic and blue, but also uplifting, vibrant, or subliminally aggressive.”

Xmal Deutschland‘s ‘Early Singles 1981-1982′ (including two bonus tracks), and the debut solo album from Xmal Deutschland’s inimitable front-woman Anja Huwe, ‘Codes’ are set for release side-by-side on March 8th, 2024 on Sacred Bones.
