KONTRAST - this name is still the band's reputation.

Back in 1996, the four sound-fiddlers already created a true independent classic with their song «Einheitsschritt» («3 Schritte vor und 3 zurück»). With «Tod ... find' ich gut!» (1998), «80er Jahre» (2007) and their GEWC-No. 1 «Durchbruch» (2008), the «executioners of black humour» hit the dancefloors again. Their album «Vision und Tradition» (2008) not only reached the Top 10 of German Alternative Charts («DAC»), but also defended a No. 1-ranking in German Electronic Web Charts for several weeks.

The compositions for the fourth album of KONTRAST were written in the wintry seclusion of a holiday village at the North Sea. Daniel Logeman (Massiv in Mensch) has henceforth been polishing the sounds and giving the songs their final touch, so the album «Balance» will be released on the renowned German label «Danse Macabre» in autumn 2014. The stormy, uncompromisingly danceable musical realization of Theodor Fontane's legendary poem «John Maynard» is a designated club hit.

In contrast, the impressive «Am Fenster» (intentionally named after a classic of the GDR-rockers City) emphasizes the competence of the «Electric Four» to create deep lyrical atmospheres. «Nothing As It Seems» attacks the dancefloors with its mixture of German and English vocals in a powerful way, while nonsense-tracks «Jeanette» and «Die Elite» unveil the almost archetypical twinkling in KONTRAST's eyes again. Finally, the fluffy melody and Nebelgeist's lascivious vocals on «Liebe light» immediately awake memories of the early 1980s, the golden age of German pop music - definitely «NDW 2.0»!
