me succeeds
frankreich muss bis polen reichen
i was a teenage vampire
showing off the bling bling
all of them witches
lorin sylvester strohm
die nacht schuf tausend ungeheuer
me succeeds combine everything the idea of youth promises: euphoria and recklessness, but equally melancholy and the cour-age to doubt.

sensitive indie pop and dancefloor work together as transparency films making each other visible, but at the same time correcting each other. borders between musical genres don’t need to be crossed anymore, since they have been eliminated long ago. back when they first met in the outskirts of munich in 2002 already, lorin strohm and sebastian kokus combined guitars and synths, intricate melodies and particulate loops. shortly afterwards, they were joined by mona steinwidder and her crystal clear voice,
along with a range of analogue instruments.

me succeeds create an atmosphere of discreet sportiness. they
play their own game – a game that doesn’t yield to the constraint imposed by categorisation, but merely obeys to the inspiration of its art. they have appropriated pavement’s intelligence, the van pelts’ powerful sprechgesang and Turner’s dancable songwriting.

me succeeds - black waves
