Electro with heart, The/Das make their first appearance on a London stage this Thursday.
Choose a flotation device to fit the prevailing atmospheric conditions in the capital this week, and bob along to the Sebright Arms.
Born from the ashes of Bodi Bill; Anton Feist and Fabian Fenk’s new band The/Das has quickly risen with EPs on cutting edge label Life & Death as well as their own imprint Krakatau, travelling the world as a live band and stripped back duo, before finding a home on Berlin indie label Sinnbus for their debut album ‘Freezer’.
On Freezer all the detours and different approaches come together, their style condensed onto their own brand of sub-cooled, driving electronic music. The eight tracks developed between coincidence and experiment on the one hand, experience and sovereignty on the other.
The core duo are joined by longtime live collaborator Thomalla (Krakatau, Running Back) and Jörg Wähner (Apparat) also integrated into the live set up on drums. Apart from this conscious step The/Das allow themselves in all other concerns to not have to decide on anything and take equal part on synths and production.
Fenk’s playful vocals provide passion and soulfulness, memorable melodies flow from their army of synths and infectious rhythm rips through from crunchy percussion and live drums.
The/Das play live in London on Thursday 16th October at the Sebright Arms.
