Updated: Oct 12, 2020
Dubrovnik finest alternative band is returned after 6 years from the official debut!
Correlation, the second album by Embassy 516 is out now on Geenger Records! Plunge into the magnifecent swells of shoegaze & dream-pop melodies driven by the unstoppable post-hardcore rhythms and walls of electronic noises.
Embassy 516 are a dream pop/ shoegaze band / post - hardcore from the ancient town of Dubrovnik (Croatia), located in the Adriatic coast, which the four-piece-band finds influential on their “laid back sound”.
This audio-visual conceptual project started on 18 November 2006, leading to carrying out the initial idea to date. Sounds and images filling the structure of this modern 'embassy' is a result of the hard working collective that striving for constant self-improvement.
"Correlation is available on vinyl, standard black or bone with orange and red splatter, and digitally on almost all popular platforms."
Their debut album Surveillance of the Environment was published 16 May 2012 under Geenger Records / IDM Publishing. The title of the 12-piece collection is taken from the Three Step Communiciaton Theory introduced by the leading American political scientist and communications theorist Harold Lasswell that assumes:
Surveillance of the environment
Correlation of components of society
Cultural transmission between generation
Second album "Correlation" was produced by frontman of the band Zarko Dragojevic / V E R S I Ø N 1 2 and co-mixed by longtime friend and collaborator Hrvoje Niksic (Kramasonik Studio, Zagreb / Croatia). 14 songs were mastered by Alan Douches (West West Side Music, NY / USA).
During their demo era that lasted for six years, the band made some significant actions – took the main stages at prominent festivals with the names like Massive Attack, The Flaming Lips, Ladytron, Broken Social Scene, Martina Topley-Bird, etc. However, a praiseworthy success was reaped with the demo-release S.o.E. in 2008.
