Voice, piano and the occasional sound effect are all Tonia Reeh needs to express her exhaustive compositional know-how.

She found support from Omar Rodríguez-López of Bosnian Rainbows on guitar, and Jakobus Siebels and Mense Reents of „Die Vögel“ performing as brass players.

Her new album „Fight Of The Stupid“ is powerful, solemn, distinctive and complex in its beauty. And above all, it’s a multifaceted musical statement on behalf of a clever, intrepid songwriter that deserves to be heard.

When Justine Electra burst onto the scene in the Berlin – and therefore European – indie world in 2006 it seemed that an exciting new voice was with us, in the shape of the witty, tuneful, original album Soft Rock.

Its growth was steady – and unstoppable, despite a lack of big studio funds. A solid little fan base developed, waiting to see what the next offering would bring.

They had to wait a long time – but those who continued to follow her with patience, or who remember thinking they wanted more, have a freshly-launched reward at last.
