Die Wände

Music / Punk / Berlin, Germany

Born out of a literal drunken stupor, Die Wände (engl. The Walls) have been intertwining the meandering intoxication of the early kraut rock era with the tonal eroticism of post punk and obscure lyrics at home somewhere between Sturm, Drang (engl. storm and stress) and helplessness. It’s a sound marked as much by the big new questions of our time as it is by a retreat into privacy, at one’s own mercy. Carsten von Postel, Mathias Wolff and Jann Petersen capture the neuroses of our zeitgeist, only to expel them the very next moment, in a strangely fervent manner, into the unknown, where we’re all left searching for answers. Contradictions are reconciled, abrasive guitars dissolve into melodies full of hope, resignation battles a strong inner urge. With their debut “Im Flausch” (2019), the Berlin-based trio had already tackled these dualities which have long been forgotten by the German rock scene. In 2022, their new self-titled follow-up “Die Wände” will finally be released which was created under the surreal conditions of the pandemic. It gazes deeply, yet more intuitively than ever towards the future.
