Boomkat Product Review:
"The debut album by the Düsseldorf artist Nikolai Szymanski and his solo project Fanta Dorado & Der Innere Kreis is an intriguing mixture of pop, industrial, wave and krautrock made for a period of upheaval in magical utopian worlds – made for adventures. With a hook in the heart and the groove in the chorus, he writes songs about depressive queens that can no longer leave their castles, or which are reminiscent of Olympia, the automatic wife from E.T.A. Hoffmann's "Sandman". These are mysterious stories with a metaphorical richness, where each image can only be decrypted in light of one's own personal misconception of reality. But if it seems like some intellectualised pop-rascal is being touted with lots of confetti here, then you haven't yet heard the album. Anyone who is already listening to the third song has by now realised how much room for their own inspiration is inherent in this music - even when it is so lyrically and sonically diverse. His compositions have been arranged with the help of a Minimoog, an Oberheim Matrix 6, some tongue clicking, Roland drum machines, wobbly guitars and looped voices in the background. And NIKOLAI SZYMANSKI's vocal dances with them – cheerful or ponderous, wistfully fantasising - as once did Holger Hiller or Kate Bush."
