If you like BE FOREST, LEBANON HANOVER or similar acts, then this is a MUST HAVE!
Bleib Modern, once a solo project founded by Philipp, is one of the most talked about new Coldwave bands in Germany. In the meantime, the project grow to become a band, consisting of 5 members and a lot of changes happened during past months: There is almost nothing left of the original Depeche Mode-inspired sound. From electric instruments to guitars, bass and smooth drum beats and psychedelic, sad, but absolutely beautiful vocals: Bleib Modern (German for: remain modern) have developped their very own sound universe, that is both unique and original! Philipps lyrics are extremely eleborate and well written: it’s all about ‘no love, depression and hate’...
On this their eagerly expected first official album, you will enjoy 10 songs that take you on a trip into an awesome atmosphere. It’s fair to say: this band knows how to use reverb and delay effects!
‘All is fair in Love and War‘ is being released by Wave Records both as regular CD in slim card-Board sleeve at a very fair price and in a limited edition deluxe HEAVY VINYL+CD edition. The CD features 8 bonus-tracks to the Vinyl, including the ultra rare, self released ‘LOWS EP’ from August 2014 – a real gem of early Bleib Modern!
No doubt: Bleib Modern are looking for / facing a great future in the new coldwave scene and for sure they will surprise us with further changes release after release. This is HOT (cold)wave!
