Album „People“

John Jones and Künstler Treu / UFO Hawaii met in 2003 when the two toured together as members of the band
„Der Plan“. Since then, Jones and Treu have worked together on songs and projects every now and then, such as The
Residents tribute album „Residents Resifted“ released in 2016.

Inspired by the Residents album, the two began working on new songs together in 2019, which founded the
basic framework of this album, „People.“ „People“ takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to portraying various archetypal characters and how they view the world. The idea was to use Jones‘ talent for creating specific character voices to portray the different psychological qualities of each song’s characters, while Treu’s experience as a film music composer allows him to create the appropriate mood for each story. These are small, strange stories like the one where Aaron is being approached by an oak seed while walking in the park, Ben – who never gets on while waiting quietly at a bus stop, or Julian – the Boolean who decides at the end of the day to adopt a purely binary worldview.

Treu and Jones have performed „People“ live at the Milla on June 7, 2023.
