Share new single & video for EP title-track
Debut EP ‘Identität’ due June 4th via Arbutus Records

Das Beat, made up of German actress & vocalist Eddie Rabenberger and Agor of Blue Hawaii, are sharing a new song and video, “Identität.” The eponymously titled single is the second from the duo’s debut EP Identität due June 4th via Arbutus Records. The song, a hypnotic track built on primitive Moroder-esque synth lines, clanging percussion and engrossing vocal hooks, follows Das Beat’s previously released single “Bubble.” 

An inferno of intoxicating synth notes and insatiable beats. Das Beat are a force to be reckoned with. The pair defy stereotypes and bring this air of freedom into their crushing ensembles. With their latest effort, this immediate and distinct tone emits into the aura, a tone that originally conveys a brooding intensity yet Das Beat has mastered the playful production of their exploratory vision. The compelling range from the vocal harmonies provides this magical and far-reaching essence.

Born in Berlin during 2020’s legendary lockdown, Das Beat seeks to blast both boredom and boundary. Dabbling in German New Wave, Italo Disco, Indie & Dance, their sound is unified by vocals from Eddie Rabenberger, sung in German and English. Amidst playful lyrics one finds a strong underlying pulse (das “beat”), pinning down the duo’s meandering atmospherics, dreamy synths, guitars and percussion. 

The duo is half-Canadian and half-German. Agor (of Blue Hawaii), moved to Berlin from Montreal in 2018. Eddie is a theatre actress originally hailing from a small town in Bavaria. Together they find a strange but alluring symbiosis – like Giorgio Moroder meets Nico, or Gina X Performance meets The Prodigy.

Their debut EP is due June 4th via Arbutus Records. Pre-order EP here:
