"Jan Platek, the mastermind behind the german Post-Rock project We Deserve This is a musical chameleon as he switched between classical Post-Rock, Acoustic Tunes, Post-Metal and even Post-Rock with dancing elements for his last outputs. For his newest EP "In Fragile" he surprised us big time and rolls out three tracks without any guitars, bass or heavy sounds at all.
Just a simple piano, drums and a synth are needed to create some of the most beautiful relaxed music I have heard this year. I can't get over the fact what an amazing sound the piano has on this EP. Since the release day I played this EP for countless times and I caught myself having this EP in my car stereo, on my smartphones and all Computers at home and it's playing all day long.
I have to admit that the electronic parts in the songs, especially in the Song "Seconds" took some time to grow on me but after a couple listens those sounds are woven perfectly into the touching and wonderful piano tunes you get on this EP. All three tracks are simply amazing but my absolute favorite is the title track "In Fragile", the melody line and that piano sound follow me all day. I can't get that damn catchy melody out of my head. And the way the piano is played, with so much passion, feeling and an ear for the most wonderful melodies, thats just outstanding and not something you find to often.
And once again it was a wise move to use a briliant cover made by Flesh and Bone Design. It doesn't happen to often that I have almost nothing to complain about when I review new music because I am very critical at all but this EP here is just beautiful and deserves your ears & attention. Highly recommended !" Chris - Post Rock Essentials
