70s-Surfsound and summer anthems
This time there is something for erveryone!
In 2016, the ANCHOR nominees Parcels (photo) scored with a relaxed, danceable retro sound – and on top, the extremely attractive five-man band turned out to be a true darling of the audience. Lately, they were convincing as supporting act of Phoenix, now we are looking forward to their show on the Reeperbahn – they will surely bring along their single “Overnight”, produced by Daft Punk”!
A similarly relaxing summer sound will be heard from Jeremy Loops with his guitar pop, making him the star of his South African home radio landscape.
Amber Run are presenting a new face on their current EP “The Assembly” – at the Reeperbahn Festival the band will show how they manage to deliver old songs in an exciting new guise.
Their laid-back and varied pop melodies as well as their great lyrics are presently making International Music THE hot German band; that’s why they were signed up at once by the renowned Staatsakt label.
The pianist Joep Beving managed to score an unbelievably viral success with his debut album “Solipsism”, which he had recorded all on his own. It catapulted him directly into the same league with stars such as Max Richter und Nils Frahm.
Not only is old master Dylan on a never-ending tour, the Munich-based alternative rock band Blackout Problems is also an expert in this field. In spite of their strong live presence, they managed to finish their second album “Kaos” and, as you might have guessed, its songs are ideal for the cathartic shows of the band.
Feverous beats, synthesizer and his uniquely clear voice make “You Will Not Die” by Nakhane one of the best current soul albums, suggesting that he will be one of the rising stars who – just like Rag’n’Bone Man in 2015 – could turn out to be one of the sensations of this year’s Reeperbahn Festival.
