The electronica music duo known as Funeral Strippers have released their newest LP album, “Wonder Woman.” The full-length record contains 15 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of one hour, making for a comprehensive Funeral Strippers experience for those not yet acquainted with the band. It has been proudly published on the FunStrip Records independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. In turns danceable and evocative, emotionally complex and irresistibly fun, “Wonder Woman” is a standout Euro-pop album music lovers around the world are sure to appreciate.
Australia’s Funeral Strippers are Adrian Klineberg and Dan Karni. They cite among important influences Radiohead, David Guetta, Turin Brakes, Manic Street Preachers, and Calvin Harris. While they share a great many sonic similarities with these, Funeral Strippers music can’t be imagined as an amalgam of the above. Their music includes many disparate elements, such as ’90s Euro-house music, dancehall, ’80s pop, and even a bit of goth.
The record manages to hit nearly every note on the emotional scale, having moments both high and low. It offers exuberant songs and melancholy songs, neither pushing to a melodramatic extreme. Songwriting on “Wonder Woman” by Funeral Strippers is natural, infectious, and narrative without being pretentious. Studio production is spotless, even striking. All performances both vocal and instrumental are easily as good as those boasted by the best-loved records in the world.
In addition to the performances of Klineberg and Karni, themselves, “Wonder Woman” also features the considerable talents of Dave Gdanski and Alex Burkoy.
Speaking of the themes of their new LP, Funeral Strippers’ Klineberg writes, “The album was written for a woman who has had some real tough times. We met 20 years ago and 20 years on, I, Adrian, have rekindled the relationship.”
But the record isn’t strictly personal. On the contrary, it speaks to everyone who’s experienced hardship and needed (or needs) to persevere.
“The album exudes strength and power to get through the hard times,” writes Klineberg, “but at the same time it expresses an amazing love story.”
“Wonder Woman” is the most prominent official release from Funeral Strippers since their 2013 debut LP, “There’s a Time and a Place for Dancing.” The record surprised critics for its broad variety, undeniable pop appeal, and cheeky sense of humor.
On the release date of their new album, Funeral Strippers offered this message to their fans: “Thanks to the moon and back for the remarkable love and support through the tough times!”
“Wonder Woman” by Funeral Strippers is available online worldwide now. Get in early, fans of dance and electronica. Very early.
