Cid Rim

Songs Of Vienna


A psychedelic ride from the Austrian capital, encompassing modern electronics, choral pop and contemporary jazz.

Clemens Bacher returns as Cid Rim. His last album, ‘Material’, was awarded BBC 6Music Album Of The Day, achieving as many as four A-list singles. He won a Gilles Peterson Worldwide Award and attended Africa Express with Damon Albarn and Brian Eno. Collaborator to Petite Noir, kmalumkoolkat and Denai Moore, he caught attention with show-stopping mixes for Sky Ferreira, Chvrches and The 1975.

But it is on his own records that we get a sense of Bacher’s scope. Cid Rim grew up the keystone of the vital club scene of Vienna alongside close friends Dorian Concept and The Clonious. For ‘Songs Of Vienna’ he relocated to London and crafted a new formula that reconciles kraut, psychedelia and jazz into detailed electronic pop.

Behind his impressionistic vocals lie themes exploring Vienna’s privileged place in the world: a safe haven for the European project rich with imperial history and culture. It was only here in the early 21st Century that Clemens and his friends could forge this hyper-specific club scene that still refuses category.
