EA Germany has teamed up with talented musicians from around the world, to create a six-song exclusive album for The Sims 4. The album titled “Simotions”, features an array of music that reflects the in-game emotions to be portrayed by Sims in The Sims 4.
Square Music – The songwriting team met by attending the same classes at the Pop Academy. Since its foundation in 2012, the trio, consisting of Matthias Heising, Jan listing, and Joschka Bender, now active in Mannheim. In addition to their extensive work as songwriters Heising, Listing, and Bender, have live and worked together in the studio with Max Giesing, Michael Schulte, Madeline Juno, and Isabell Schmidt.
Amsterdamn – Damn (English for “damn”), these three guys are good! Before they even put instruments in their hands, they leave everyone and everything behind for the stage. The hot soul-rock comes is often heard in the Amsterdam Pub, where one wants to indulge in a lavish ceremony in vodka with fresh orange juice. From the beginning to the bitter end exists one word: stylish. Amster … DAMN!
Allez!! Allez!…re-established in April 2013, and made “Glass Bead Game” that brought them back into the spotlight. They like skateboarding, 80s music, and like you, don’t want to grow up. In the basement of singer Laura in Olsbrücken parents, they gather almost every night and write songs about life. Allez! Allez! is all sneakers and leather jacket.
Fedora – loud, fast, and energetic. A hefty dose of distorted guitars, drums, and the voice of a rock angel. At first it was just a vision – now it has become a mission. In the fall of 2011, the musicians met for the first time. Within a short time thereafter, they group recorded their first hit single. The songs reflect their musical background: from the Foo Fighters to Inter-sphere – the music is rough, honest, and loud!
Curlyman – Rapping saw the light of day when the doctor blessed Curlyman with golden curls. He is Boom Bap Beatz 90s, and fresh hooks – that’s all he needs…and maybe a pretty lady who doesn’t touch his hair. Superman, Spiderman, Batman, and Ironman were born yesterday. The world needs a new hero today! And that means Curlyman’s the man.
SONAH – SONAH is a German-language acoustic pop duo. The two singers, Tamara Olorga and Arina Tara, are not just confusingly similar, but create two very different voices with a distinctive sound. Their motto is: do it yourself, be comfortable, lean back, relax, and listen to the sound of the story.
