“For gyrating, art pop with a soulful tint, look no further.”– Loud and Quiet Magazine
“…the missing link between avant-garde ambient techno and noir-pop.” – The Line Of Best Fit
The/Das release their captivating debut album Freezer via Sinnbus today.
There has already been a swell of support for the Berlin based due, with the video for their single Miami Waters premiering on Clash Magazine‘s website, while The Line Of Best Fit premiered My Made Up Spook, showcasing the video’s voyeuristic DIY aestethic.
The album presents the darker side of electro as the duo open the album with single, My Made Up Spook, revealing their new direction as a band, straddling the line between intelligent electro pop and what they describe as ‘techno tenderness’. Imagine the razor-sharp polished sound that Sohn created with his recent album Tremors but with a more organic, wistful edge. The album, however, shows many facets of the talented Berlin based pair as ’Miami Waters’ feels more dream like and tracks ’Parallel Worlds’ and ‘Operation of Chance’ sound like Daft Punk’s 2010 Tron soundtrack’s darker, more cerebral cousin.
Freezer is a departure from last year’s Speak Your Mind Speak EP, which gained praise from The 405, Clash, Artrocker, VICE’s Noisey and many more. The album was developed and recorded spontaneously, showcasing the band’s newfound organic approach to songwriting as a proper band but still within the electronic sphere. With this album The/Das prove that they are still one of the most exciting acts to emerge from the ever evolving Berlin scene.
