Festland


FESTLAND At your windows flowers grow Festland is German Technosoul. Framed in minimal electronic dance, house, and ambient- but played live with drums, sampler, bass, and three-part harmonies. Festland are a stunning, rocking live act. Like early Kraftwerk, Festland unite their voices in a melancholic search for romantic moments in a fucked up world. Think of Schubert, Mike Ink's GAS, and Depeche Mode. Now get closer and dance a little harder. Read more on Last.fm
FESTLAND At your windows flowers grow Festland is German Technosoul. Framed in minimal electronic dance, house, and ambient- but played live with drums, sampler, bass, and three-part harmonies. Festland are a stunning, rocking live act. Like early Kraftwerk, Festland unite their voices in a melancholic search for romantic moments in a fucked up world.

Think of Schubert, Mike Ink's GAS, and Depeche Mode. Now get closer and dance a little harder. Masha Qrella writes about Festland: „Melancholy beyond Indie-isms. Romanticism beyond abject glamour! Strings and samples of classical music without overindulgence, it’s never too much, like knowing all the references but not being the smart aleck. German lyrics, weird poetry, and in combination with the music this is absolutely spooky.

Music of an escapist tradition, on the cusp between art and pop - it perhaps reminds me, if of anything at all, then of the Michaela Melian solo record. No computer generated stuff; no simple bleeps or bloops here. Every sample has a story to tell, every verse and every beat draws you into a world full of beauty, loneliness, hope and suicidal thoughts: “Doch um diese Länder zu sehen / musst du immer schlafen gehen / Und so wünscht’ ich mir schon ziemlich oft / niemals mehr aufzuwachen, aufzustehen."(transl. But to see these countries / you always have to go to sleep / that’s why I wished so fairly pretty often / never to wake up again , never to stay up again) from „Kellerloch“ A world of text is sensitively woven around the three musicians through their assured musical interpretations.

A dangerously addictive cocktail - beautiful and sad at the same.“ The release of Festland's 'An Euren Fenstern Wachsen Blumen' is a collaboration by Calexico's Volker Zander and German independent music pioneer Alfred Hilsberg, through their respective label apparent extent (John Convertino, Thomas Belhom, James Merle Thomas) and ZickZack (Einstürzende Neubauten, Faust, FSK, Blumfeld, among others).
