The international Alternative Rock project from Germany is hitting hard this year. After their debut album ‘Music Vol.1’ a few months ago, they’re already back with ‘What If’, a bittersweet anthem about saving the world.
Now split between Nice, L.A. and Cologne, the members still – and more than ever – make music. They write and produce everything on their own, in a joint virtual recording studio. Every member plays various instruments and contributes what the current piece of music needs.
What about their masks? Well, THE HYBRIS create their music as Ringo Rabbit, Beanie Bison and Malcolm Mandrill – three wannabe superheroes on a mission to save the world. Ringo explain: “We felt like doing something ‘different’. At first it was a stupid idea, but meanwhile we think it is pretty cool”.
Some suspect, they want to make themselves more interesting than they really are. Others believe it is a smart move – since they’re incredibly ugly in real life.
