"After the Gold Rush"
What brings more, really thousands of people to give up yet remarkably plugged in pouring rain at a festival afternoon when the first charge alcohol not yet bangs, but the hangover
from the previous day in the bones and the cursed cycle still traveling roller coaster, so to to watch a band?
There were no big Rockstar Attitude, it was not bombastic stage production, it was not the most well-known name. The indicated scenario happened as the Hurricane Festival 2007. Before the stage of the photos from Hamburg!
Not only at the Hurricane Festival - a total of more than 100 shows in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, France and England (although there is not even one understands their texts) twisted photos people musically head, in some cities even two or three times, because they have been asked again and again, because in many places just could not get enough of in their songs.
Right: Rockstars are not still pictures, because they lack the allure. And yes, she and her music are for anyway much too honest. With their debut album "Photos" have themselves set the bar pretty high Tom Hessler (vocals / guitar), Frieder Weiss (bass), Deniz Erarslan (guitar) and Benedict Schnermann (drums). Now appears on March 28, the second album titled "After the Gold Rush
What are you saying?
Reminds you "After the Gold Rush" somehow ... Now already tell! The board just sounds so different from the last of the photos. Are you saying that? So an almost Stilbruch should therefore be honest? Two years ago on the debut album sound "pictures" as a British Wave rock group and now this?
I agree. For what please is more honest than initially determine that time is past. That are more than two years between then and now, have left their mark on one. The marked that have changed. The goal was to write an unpretentious, even unmanly album. And if you listen closely, you may notice that "After the Gold Rush" so different but is not. That it (if you can already say) is a typical photo album.
As before, it comes with photos to personal matters. So easy. And here you can sometimes throw for a change the word SINCERITY in the room. If in the single "After the Gold Rush" "I am a Thomas and not Thomas Mann" is, then is lyricist Tom nothing further than to try to obtain the contents in the feuilleton readership hearing or even with the band photos on cultural Bohème ascend. Equally absurd is the four, however, the idea of being waved through as German-language rock band with Klamauktexten at folk festivals and Unipartys. Fortunately there are photos managed to be perceived by many people who listen to their songs and come to the concerts in other, more sincere categories. The also do not interfere with drawers, because actually it is simply pop.
Here we have a German guitar band that has no problem with French-House just as horny to find as R'n'B beats, the Neptunes or all of Timbaland
-produced stuff. In times when fewer plates are sold, genre affiliation becomes more important and the music industry with full pelt down the drain, should more sincerity are hardly required.
What have finally accomplished after the last festival summer in a small studio for converted family home in Co-production with producer Berend Intelmann photos, you think so now in your hands.
If so, then say but soon by yourself with photos.
