The new intricate track from instrumental duo BUNKR channels several key influences of progressive, math, post rock, and more and their specific blend found throughout its corners mesh really well with the variety of riffs, tempos and complex, yet very enjoyable nature. You might say it’s a pity that it is instrumental only, but there are plenty of redeeming qualities to find in this 9-minute feat.
Here’s what the band had to say about the track:
“Schluss is one of the first songs we’ve written, it has undergone a lot of changes and optimizations in recent years, and for us it’s probably the hit of the record! But with its 9 minutes, it is probably the longest hit in history! The song is characterized by two loops and a very massive end. A beautiful challenge to play live! It makes your head twirl and then take you to the beach for a while and we go on a little history class on how to play stoner rock in 3 riffs!”
“Schluss” comes from the band’s new record of the same name, to be released on March 29th via Cold Smoke Records and Division Records.

About the band:
The duo Bunkr was born in 2014 with the desire of 2 Swiss musicians to get out of their comfort zone. They set the course for the creation of seismic, noisy, hypnotic sounds and the use of unconventional musical structures. Exploration and experimentation are thus on the agenda for Iannis and Kevin, self-taught musicians, who have been playing together since 2011. According to Jonathan Nido (Coilguns / Closet Disco Queen): “Another duo of fools composed of Iannis “musclor” Valgini on drums and Kevin “unctuous match” with his guitar sound as thick as its pornographic hair. It obviously has nothing to do with the talent as much as with Iannis’ delicious harm pit’s smell. It is sure they are memorable on stage, but it’s also hard to say exactly what they are doing, there is guitar, drums and it’s great!
