DRAMAS have skillfully mastered the art of the in-between: Between a heavy heart and the knowledge that everything changes, that nothing stands still. Formed in 2016, the boundary-pushing art pop/electronic duo presented a big and emotional debut with their album "Nothing Is Permanent". In 2021 DRAMAS returned with their self-titled second longplayer including the singles "Bloodbath", "Candy" and "Noday", all of which caused a sensation on over 100 radio stations across Europe. A brand new single "Fame" is the opening single of the artpop duo’s new album, due out in spring 2023.
Completely dedicated to the wonderfully trashy 60s and 90s aesthetics and combined with the current sound of the Gen Z indie movement, the 22-year-old prodigy convinces with his charismatic voice and a golden touch for great melodies. Considered a hot insider tip since his strong debut "Saw Someone Like You" at the latest, Lil Julez went one big step further with the summer hit "Bitter Caroline". "I wanted to create a strong contrast between the music and the lyrics. That’s probably something I subconsciously picked up from the Smiths."
Electronic artist Peter Zirbs finally stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist in 2018 with his praised album debut »What if we don't exist?«. Zirbs’ musical mixture of futuristic synth-pop, experimental and graceful ambient and minimal music even prompted an American music critic to compare it with Bowie’s legendary album Low. Together with ex-Archive frontman Craig Walker he released a new single "Animal Silence" – a first teaser single for Zirbs' new solo album (autumn 2022). The lyrics of the single are about nothing less than the question of whether prayers alone help us to solve the big problems of humanity.
Following his powerful and dark solo album trilogy "Je suis le Ténébreux" (2016) , "Paradise Lost" (2018) and "M" (2020) London-based avant-garde composer Christopher James Chaplin released his acclaimed new major album project "Patriarchs" in 2022. "Patriarchs" refer to the antediluvian Patriarchs - from Adam to Noah. The album is about the lineage of these patriarchs and their journey from the darkness of the Fall towards enlightenment. Another powerful work of art, situated between experimental electronic music and avant-garde. Available now on double vinyl.
Boz Boorer, long-time co-songwriter, guitarist and musical director of Morrissey is back with two new high-profile singles, both to coincide with his 60th birthday on 19 May. On the one hand, for “Initials BB”, a Serge Gainsbourg classic, he brought the great singer and lyricist James Maker, a long-time musical collaborator, back into the studio. For the second single, “A Good Day Tomorrow”, he teamed up again with British rapper Lusty.
Following collaborations with artists such as Albin Janoska (SOHN) and Hubert Mauracher the fascinating, charismatic singer and songwriter Loretta Who presented her own distinctive musical microcosm with her solo debut EP 'Virtue'. In the years that followed, numerous new musical collaborations continued to cause a stir. In 2020, she finally teamed up with electronic producer Peter Zirbs for their critically acclaimed single release "Wasted".
