Yes, it really exists, the latest Neue Deutsche Welle. No trend label, no joke, no sales strategy. Quite the opposite. Steintor Herrenchor are one of the few bands in the country so far that breathe new life into the reverberating nostalgia sound of '85 in a completely unbiased way.
The hitherto anonymous trio from Hanover manages the wedding arrangement of New Wave, Post-Punk and Casio-Pop in the DIY-mode so flawlessly, so urgently, without any hullabaloo about their persons, that it is so flawless, so urgent, that any nostalgia for this time either fades away or returns with even greater returns with even greater force.
"I don't want to fall in love, because I don't want to I don't want to lose myself", it sounds in the wonderfully minimalistic "Postcards" - more eyeshadow romance doesn't get any better than this. Hopelessly in love with someone who doesn't even take who doesn't even notice you? Just lost the maybe not better half after all? Brooding attacks about everything that went wrong?
Steintor Herrenchor give away the definitive soundtrack for one storm in the head and for the other on gray summer summer days. From the reflection on yesterday to the dilemma in today, this wave is far from ready to break.
