Case in point: the new album from Loewenhertz on the Echozone music label!
With their second album "Echtzeit" the Electro / Synthpop duo Loewenhertz seamlessly follows their much-esteemed first release "Irgendwo in Deutschland" and delivers again a well-dosed mixture of moving electro and synth pop, whose lyrics are available in German as well as in English. The pleasantly warm and intimate voice of singer Alexander Pfahler is also able to add to songs that touch and charm, which giving both the melancholic ("Irgendwann") and slightly gloomy ("It's Too Late") the necessary catchiness. It's not surprising that the first single "Irgendwann" stormed into the Top 10 of the German DAC Charts and two other singles ("Unsichtbar" and "Wer sind Wir") have critical acclaim, also on this new album release. Musically Loewenhertz are still very well at home with fans of Depeche Mode, De / Vision and Wolfsheim. They feature varied songwriting and a sophisticated production that gives the songs the necessary sound and punching power to convince both club and worldwide radio casts.
Here's both the video for "Irgendwann" ["Sometime"] and the full "Echtzeit" album trailer:
You can purchase the full album now available on the Echozone Bandcamp site!
I've been playing out the "Irgendwann" and "Unsichtbar" singles out for a few months now so it's nice to have the rest of this album's work! You'll be hearing Loewenhertz from me this Summer on dance floors in the U.S.!
