September 30, 2022 will see alternative/garage rock and soul-grunge outfit BLITZPØP debut their first EP, entitled MDMA. The up-and-coming band, featuring MOTHER’S CAKE frontman Yves, GIANT ANTEATER vocalist Pia, bassist Alex of THE VINTAGE CARAVAN and Kajetan on drums, unleashes a new wave of a straightforward sound and a “Fuck off the deep shit“ attitude, combining alternative, grunge and garage rock elements with a fuzzy dose of the soul and electronica funk. Their rough yet melodic and heavily groovin‘ debut should please fans of 90’s rock and grunge era in the likes of Hole and Nirvana, Dead Weather, The Distillers or The Kills, but stands out due to its very own touch and strong individuality.
But give ear, as following the previously-released, first single and EP title track, “MDMA”, today BLITZPØP has shared a music video for new song “Spirit Of Times”! Says extraordinary vocalist Pia: “Spirit of Times reminds us of an unforgettable time we spent in Portugal where we also shot the video. Beautiful days we’ll never forget.
For us this song is all about freedom, good vibes, good times where you can forget all your bad feelings and problems. We’re glad to bring you a new track and hope you’ll like this song as much as we do.”

BLITZPØP’s upcoming debut was recorded by Raphaël Neikes, Manuel Renner and Tom Kornis at Chaos AD Studios and at Moonwalker Productions. The EP was mixed by Raphaël Neikes at Moonwalker Productions and mastered by Tom Kornis at Chaos AD Studio.
As guitarist Yves recently commented: “Blitzpøp is all about crazy songwriting with mainly naughty and painfully recognizable lyrics. Most Important for us was to not think too much about what we create, it should simply kick ass!
We wrote the songs in our small dirty flat which was the perfect environment for that kind of music. We started to produce the song ideas ’till we had about 10 tracks. What was missing was the band. Pia and I started to call some friends like the awesome drummer Kai and the hammering bass player Alex (The Vintage Caravan)…a few minutes later bllitzpøp was born!
We hope all you Pøppers will have as much fun while listening as we had while creating it!”
MDMA will be issued by the band directly on September 30, 2022, and you can you pre-save the EP at THIS LOCATION.
