Dark folk songwriting: melancholic, playful, brutally honest. Songs about penguins and toast, fire salamanders and pot faces. Songs about holding hands in times of racism. Despite their musical simplicity, or perhaps because of it, the poetic songs develop a powerful pull and land razor-sharp where it hurts. The acoustic stories of Vereter, the alter ego of Vienna’s underground musician* Pete Prison IV (Bosna, Mekongg) are hard to let go of.
